The consequence of this deletion at the protein level is the loss of 26 carboxy-terminal amino acids from the HPPDase protein, including a tight cluster of several amino acids that are conserved in all HPPDase proteins in the database. Norris SR, Barrette TR, DellaPenna D. Genetic dissection of carotenoid synthesis in Arabidopsis defines plastoquinone as an essential component of phytoene desaturation. ↵1 Present address: Boyce Thompson Institute, Tower Road, Ithaca, NY 14853. Essential protein for photoautotrophism. The five conserved Tyr and His residues postulated to form the HPPDase ferric iron center are indicated by filled dots. They are also α-tocopherol … Studies on the expression of NDH-H, a subunit of the NAD(P)H-plastoquinone-oxidoreductase of higher plant chloroplasts. After partial digestion of SN500 withNotI, a 4.4-kb fragment containing the cauliflower mosaic virus promoter, pHPPD coding sequences, and an OCS terminator was isolated and ligated into the binary plant-transformation shuttle vector pART27 (Gleave, 1992), generating clone SN506. This expressed sequence tag was used to isolate a full-length Arabidopsis cDNA clone, pHPPD. A versatile binary vector system with a T-DNA organisational structure conducive to efficient integration of cloned DNA into the plant genome. The disruption of the Synechocystis open reading frame Δslr0090 encoding a gene with high homology to plant genes encoding 4‐hydroxyphenylpyruvate dioxygenase results in an impairment of tocopherol biosynthesis without affecting levels of plastoquinone, carotenoids and chlorophyll as well as cell growth and photosynthesis. These data provide genetic evidence that constitutive expression of the pHPPD transgene complements the pds1 mutation. The occurrence of multiple genes encoding HMGR is a general feature of higher plants: two genes are present in Arabidopsis (Caelles et al., 1989; Enjuto et al., 1994), three genes have been reported in Hevea brasiliensis (Chye et al., 1992), and four genes are present in … HPPDase has been purified from several mammalian and bacterial sources (Wada et al., 1975;Lindstedt et al., 1977; Roche et al., 1982; Endo et al., 1992), and in all cases the active enzyme was found to be a homodimer or, less commonly, a homotetramer, with subunits of approximately 40 to 48 kD. https://doi.org/10.1016/S0014-5793(02)02978-2. In higher plants, etioplast to chloroplast differentiation is characterized by dramatic ultrastructural changes of the plastid and a concomitant increase in chl A similar dark-brown coloration was reported when the gene encoding HPPDase fromStreptomyces avermitilis was expressed in E. coli(Denoya et al., 1994). Eighty-one individual plaques were collected for further evaluation and detailed characterization was performed on 32 isolates, of which four full-length clones were sequenced. Finally, comparison of the HPPD genomic sequences from wild type and pds1 identified a 17-bp deletion in thepds1 allele that results in deletion of the carboxyterminal 26 amino acids of the HPPDase protein. Despite this structural similarity, chloroplast NDH and its evolutionary origin NDH-1 in cyanobacteria accept elec … The disruption of the Synechocystis open reading frame Δslr0090 encoding a gene with high homology to plant genes encoding 4-hydroxyphenylpyruvate dioxygenase results in an impairment of tocopherol biosynthesis without affecting levels of plastoquinone, carotenoids and chlorophyll as well as cell growth and photosynthesis. E. coli harboring the pET-HPPD construct developed a dark-brown color, whereas cultures containing the empty pET15b vector did not (data not shown). The blots were hybridized with the pHPPD probe and washed two times at room temperature for 15 min with 2× SSC, 0.1% SDS and two times at 55°C for 25 min in 1× SSC, 0.1% SDS. In this paper, we report the cloning and functional analysis of gene products from Synechocystis sp. The amplified product was ligated into the pCRII vector (Invitrogen, San Diego, CA), generating clone SN507. Amino acid residues identical in all 14 HPPDase sequences are denoted with black boxes. 1992); and recently it has been demonstrated that the enzyme participates in a ferredoxin-dependent From its sequence, this protein is predicted to be a serine-threonine kinase. Five Tyr and His residues, postulated to form a ferric iron center in HPPDases (Denoya et al., 1994), are also conserved in the putative Arabidopsis HPPDase (Fig. Component of the cytochrome b6-f complex, which mediates electron transfer between photosystem II (PSII) and photosystem I (PSI), cyclic electron flow around PSI, and state … However, a large fraction of the PQ pool is located outside the thylakoid membranes, in the plastoglobules and the chloroplast envelopes, reflecting a wider … B, Absorption spectra of peaks 1 and 2 from A. Thus, we hypothesized that ispA , the gene encoding farnesyl-diphosphate synthase in E. coli ( 21 ), could be part of an operon containing other isoprenoid biosynthetic genes. 3A) and had a spectrum and absorbance maximum that were identical to those of the HGA standard (Fig. Homogentisic acid is the product of MelA, which mediates melanogenesis in the marine bacterium. Plastoquinone and tocopherols are the two major classes of chloroplastic, lipid-soluble quinone compounds in higher plants. The hydroxyphenylpyruvate dioxygenase from, HPPD, 4-hydroxyphenylpyruvate dioxygenase. Plastoquinone-deficient mutants of maize and A. thaliana exhibit severe growth defects and seedling lethality (7, 9, 32). Among these, tyrosine-derived metabolites, tocopherols, plastoquinone, and ubiquinone are essential to plant survival. Constitutive expression of pHPPD in a pds1 mutant background complements this mutation. The pds1 mutation was previously mapped to chromosome 1 between distorted1 and chlorina1 (Norris et al., 1995). In previous studies we characterized two loci in Arabidopsis defining key steps of this biosynthetic pathway. This deletion results in a substitution of Leu for the highly conserved Phe at position 419, followed immediately by a stop codon. Miyake et al. DNA-sequence analysis was done using both DNAStar and MacVector (International Biotechnologies, Inc., New Haven, CT). et al., 1998). As discussed previously, Arabidopsis plants homozygous for thepds1 mutation are unable to synthesize both plastoquinone and tocopherols because of an inability to convert HPP to HGA (Fig. Norris SR, Shen X, DellaPenna D. Complementation of the Arabidopsis pds1 mutation with the gene encoding p-hydroxyphenylpyruvate dioxygenase. The plastids of higher plants accumulate large amounts of two biosynthetically related quinone compounds: plastoquinones and tocopherols. They accumulate in chromoplasts and sequester carotenoids during the development of flowers and fruits. The prenyl alcohol product clearly indicated that the cloned gene catalyzed the synthesis of a C 45 prenyl moiety . SN506 was electroporated into Agrobacterium tumefaciens strain C58 and used to transform wild-type Arabidopsis (ecotype Ws) via vacuum infiltration (Bent et al., 1994). Failure of the transgene to functionally complement the pds1 mutation would result in F2 progeny that segregate 3:1 green:white (wild type to mutant), whereas functional complementation by the transgene would result in F2 progeny that segregate 15:1 green:white, assuming that the transgene and thepds1 mutation were not linked. Although mammals and nonphotosynthetic bacteria cannot synthesize plastoquinone or tocopherols, they do nonetheless contain HPPDase enzymatic activity. This search identified a 460-bp truncated Arabidopsis cDNA (single-underlined DNA sequence in Fig.2) with significant homology to the carboxy terminus of previously identified HPPDases. These results indicate that Arabidopsis pHPPD encodes a functional HPPDase enzyme. Constitutive expression of the protein encoded by the Arabidopsis HPPDase cDNA is sufficient to restore wild-type pigmentation to plants homozygous for thepds1 mutation. The resulting F1 seeds were surface sterilized and plated on MS2 medium with 60 mg/L kanamycin. To verify that the brown coloration in E. coli expressing pET-HPPD was the result of plasmid-mediated HGA production, cell-free supernatants from E. coli cultures containing the empty pET15b vector and pET-HPPD were analyzed by HPLC for the presence of HGA (Fig. Until recently considered as exclusively cytosolic enzymes, GSTs form a large gene family in Arabidopsis, but the physiological functions of many of these genes remain unclear. Together, these data conclusively demonstrate that pds1 is a mutation in the HPPDase structural gene. Presumably, these highly conserved residues are important for substrate binding or the catalytic mechanism of HPPDases. The coding frames of the wild-type and pds1 HPPDase alleles were completely identical with the exception of a 17-bp deletion (5′-TTTTGGCAAAGGCAATT-3′) in the pds1 HPPD gene from nucleotides 1254 to 1270 of the wild-type cDNA sequence in Figure 2. Moreover, the gene product was targeted to plastid in plant cells. Clone SN500 was generated by subcloning a 1.5-kbKpnI/HindIII fragment containing the complete coding region of pHPPD into the plant-transformation shuttle vector pART7 (Gleave, 1992). To functionally test the hypothesis that the Arabidopsispds1 mutation is the result of a lesion in the structural HPPDase gene, it is necessary to isolate and functionally characterize Arabidopsis HPPDase cDNAs and the corresponding wild-type and mutant HPPDase alleles. The genes encoding boxed enzymes were studied in this work, and the dashed lines represent proposed chlororespiratory reactions 254 J Appl Phycol (2010) 22:253–263. A computer search of the plant DNA databases, including 20,000 random Arabidopsis cDNAs (Newman et al., 1994), was conducted using human and bacterial HPPDase sequences as the query. This confirmed that the expressed enzyme is solanesyl diphosphate synthase. This partial cDNA was used as a probe to isolate a full-length cDNA that was named pHPPD. The putative Arabidopsis HPPDase protein has from 17% to 27% amino acid identity with bacterial, fungal, and animal HPPDases and between 58% and 70% amino acid identity with two other plant HPPDases. Co-segregation of the pds1 and HPPDase loci was determined by restriction fragment-length polymorphism linkage analysis using pHPPD as probe. Alignments were performed to13 other HPPDase proteins (accession nos. Volume 45, issue 5 of the journal Zeitschrift für Naturforschung C was published in 1990. AF060481) and pds1 mutant tissues were determined by direct sequencing of PCR-amplified products. Combined, these data conclusively demonstrate that pds1 is a mutation of the HPPDase gene. Primary structure deduced from complementary DNA sequence and expression in cultured cells of mammalian 4-hydroxyphenylpyruvic acid dioxygenase. Kanamycin-resistant T2 seedlings were transferred to soil and grown to maturity, and T3 seed was harvested. The 460-bp insert from this expressed sequence tag was used as a probe to screen 4 × 105 plaques of the Arabidopsis PRL2 library (Newman et al., 1994). 1; Norris et al., 1995). Similar results were reported when aS. These data demonstrate that the Arabidopsis cDNA pHPPD encodes a functional HPPDase enzyme. Linkage analysis indicated that the gene corresponding to Arabidopsis pHPPD maps near (±4 centimorgans) the pds1 mutation (data not shown). The first step of this pathway, common to the synthesis of both plastoquinone and tocopherol, is the formation of HGA from HPP by the enzyme HPPDase (EC 1.13.11.27). Genes encoding the DOXP pathway enzymes are found in the nucleus, but their products are targeted to the chloroplast (Lange et al., 1998). However, despite this compelling evidence, it could not be determined whether the pds1 mutation directly or indirectly affected the HPPDase enzyme (Norris et al., 1995). The consequence of this mutation at the protein level is indicated in the box below the deletion. In addition to HPPDase-dependent HGA accumulation, pHPPD expression in E. coli resulted in accumulation of ochronotic pigment, an oxidative polymerization product of HGA. Loss of the transgene should restore a 3:1 green:white ratio to such plants. To determine the molecular basis of the pds1 mutation, the HPPDase genomic DNA sequences from wild-type Ws Arabidopsis (accession no. T20952) with homology to the carboxy terminus of human HPPDase (accession no.X72389). F2 progeny heterozygous for the pds1 mutation were selected from a cross betweenPDS1/pds1 (ecotype Ws) and PDS1/PDS1 (ecotype Columbia [Col]). E. coli containing a control plasmid without the HPPDase open-reading frame lacks this peak (Fig. Confers resistance to photo-oxidative damages by contributing to the thermal dissipation of light energy and to lumenal acidification (increase of pH gradient).

A, HPLC analysis of a HGA standard in Luria-Bertani broth is shown in the top plot. Three independent transgenic lines constitutively overexpressing HPPDase were selected and crossed withPDS1/pds1 heterozygotes. In both cases, the two amplified genomic fragments overlap by about 200 bp. Published by Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. Their mode of action arises from a direct inhibition of plastoquinone and tocopherol synthesis and an indirect inhibition of carotenoid desaturation (Mayonado et al., 1989;Schultz et al., 1993; Secor, 1994). For clarity, not all biosynthetic steps are shown and only the HPPDase reaction is shown in detail. By continuing you agree to the use of cookies. The biosynthetic pathway for vitamin E has been elucidated several years ago , but the genes encoding the enzymes of the pathway have been identified only very recently (for a review see ).

The 2-C-methyl-d-erythritol 4-phosphate (MEP) pathway is responsible for the biosynthesis of many crucial secondary metabolites, such as carotenoids, monoterpenes, plastoquinone, and tocopherols. ... Generation of gene-specific real-time PCR standards The first ATG of pHPPD begins an open-reading frame encoding a 50-kD protein of 445 amino acids (Fig. Here, we identified fibrillin 5 (FBN5), which is essential for plastoquinone-9 (PQ-9) biosynthesis in Arabidopsis thaliana . In the photosynthesis process, NAD dehydrogenase plays a very important role. However, little is known about the functions of fibrillins in leaf tissues. The pET-HPPD culture filtrate had a prominent peak that co-migrated with the HGA standard (Fig. Abstract. Similarly, for the pds1 mutant, two sets of primers were used: SN418T7+10 and SN418MF+1b (5′-CAGATGTTGTAGCCCT-3′) for the first 1000 bp of the gene, and SN418T7+4 and SN418MF+12 for the last 700 bp of the gene. Genomic DNAs for use as substrates for PCR were isolated from wild-type and pds1 genotypes (both are ecotype Wassilewskija [Ws]) by the modified minipreparation method (DellaPorta et al., 1983). These kanamycin-resistant, pds1 heterozygous F1 plants were then selfed, and segregation of their F2 progeny for both kanamycin resistance and the pds1 phenotype was determined (TableI). HPPDase catalyzes a complex, irreversible reaction involving the introduction of two molecules of oxygen, and decarboxylation and rearrangement of the side chain (Fig. In mammals, which cannot synthesize plastoquinone or tocopherols, α-tocopherol (vitamin E) is an essential dietary component (Mason, 1980) and has a well-documented role as a membrane-associated free radical scavenger (for review, seeLiebler, 1993). In this review, we summarize and discuss recent research progresses in the biosynthetic pathways of PQ and UQ and enzymes and their encoding genes involved in side chain elongation and in the second stage of PQ and UQ biosynthesis. The CO2 lost and molecular oxygen introduced by HPPDase are indicated with a larger font and asterisks, respectively. Although plants homozygous for the pds1 mutation could be rescued by growth in the presence of homogentisic acid, the product of HPPDase, we were unable to determine if the mutation directly or indirectly disrupted HPPDase activity. Purification and some properties of 4-hydroxyphenylpyruvate dioxygenase from, Recombinant inbred lines for mapping RFLP and phenotypic markers in. coli. PCC 6803 and Arabidopsis encoding polyprenyltransferases specific to tocopherol biosynthesis. The null phenotype of thepds1 mutant suggests that these 26 carboxy-terminal residues are essential for HPPDase enzymatic activity. The latter results in accumulation of the carotenoid biosynthetic intermediate phytoene and photooxidation of the plastid. 1 ). Together, these data indicate that the PDS1 locus and HPPDase gene are linked in the Arabidopsis genome. Presumably, these genes were transferred to the nucleus from the cyanobacterial-related endosymbiont that later became the chloroplast (Sprenger et al., 1997), ↵* Corresponding author; e-mail della_d{at}med.unr.edu; fax 1– 702–784–1650. PQ-9 (plastoquinone-9) has a central role in energy transformation processes in cyanobacteria by mediating electron transfer in both the photosynthetic as well as the respiratory electron transport chain. As a result of the central role HPPDase serves in aromatic amino acid metabolism in mammals and plastidic quinone synthesis in plants, a class of competitive inhibitors of HPPDases collectively known as triketones has been developed and used for a variety of clinical and agricultural purposes (Lindstedt et al., 1992; Schultz et al., 1993; Secor, 1994). This paper reports the isolation of a cDNA, pHPPD, encoding Arabidopsis HPPDase and its functional characterization by expression in both plants and Escherichia coli. Developing F2 seeds in siliques of mature F1 plants were scored for the homozygous albino mutant pds1 phenotype as described previously (Norris et al., 1995). Purification and properties of hog liver 4-hydroxyphenylpyruvate dioxygenase. As shown in Figure 2, the wild-type and pds1 HPPD alleles are identical in sequence with the exception of a 17-bp deletion in the pds1HPPD allele. PCR products were analyzed by gel electrophoresis, and equal concentrations of each were pooled, purified, and used directly for sequencing. FQR is a putative enzyme that reduces plastoquinone using Fd as a direct electron donor and has been characterized as a binding site for antimycin A, a specific inhibitor of cyclic electron flow. Fifty percent of the resulting kanamycin-resistant F1 progeny from these crosses were also heterozygous for the pds1 mutation. The role of metabolism in the antioxidant function of vitamin E. Treatment of hereditary tyrosinemia type I by inhibition of 4 hydroxyphenylpyruvate dioxygenase. For cloning purposes a NcoI site was introduced 5′ of the ATG start codon by changing the A at position −1 to a C using PCR-based mutagenesis with the two oligonucleotides 5′-TGTAAAACGACGGCCAGT-3′ and 5′-GTTGGTGAAATCCATGGGCCACCAAAACGC-3′. In plants, triketones such as sulcotrione (2-[4-chloro-2-nitrobenzoyl]-5,5-dimethylcyclohexane-1,3-dione) are effective bleaching herbicides. To further understand the nature of the pds1 mutation, we have isolated and functionally analyzed cDNAs and genomic clones encoding HPPDase from Arabidopsis. The functional expression of the Arabidopsis HPPDase cDNA in E. coli demonstrates that it encodes a functional HPPDase enzyme. Copyright © 2021 by The American Society of Plant Biologists. This membrane-bound enzyme was specific for geranyl diphosphate as the prenyl donor and coumarin as the prenyl acceptor. Continued analysis of other plastoquinone and tocopherol biosynthetic mutants, such as pds2 (Norris et al., 1995), will also provide valuable information concerning the subcellular location and regulation of tocopherol and plastoquinone synthesis in plants. Linkage of the HPPD gene and thepds1 mutant was demonstrated by both mapping and co-segregation analysis. The grey nodes represent the genes encoding enzymes from the methylerythritol 4‐phosphate (MEP) and the mevalonic acid (MVA) pathways and from biosynthetic pathways located downstream of geranylgeranyl diphosphate synthase (GGPPS). HPLC analysis of bacterial cultures for the presence of HGA was performed according to published procedures (Denoya et al., 1994). Our results indicate that in … Published August 1998. On the basis of the results presented herein, we conclude that the stromal reductant is NADH and that the Ndh complex functions as an NADH:plastoquinone oxidoreductase. To determine whether the putative Arabidopsis HPPDase cDNA encoded a functional HPPDase enzyme, the open-reading frame of this cDNA was expressed in E. coli. The locations of the pds1 andpds2 mutations in the pathway are indicated. 2). 1). A 1.49-kbNcoI/BamHI fragment from SN507 was ligated into the pET15b vector (Novagen, Madison, WI), generating pET-HPPD. Subcellular localization and purification of a. Molecular cloning of the liver-specific rat F antigen. A nonsense mutation in the 4-hydroxyphenylpyruvic acid dioxygenase gene (Hpd) causes skipping of the constitutive exon and hypertyrosinemia in mouse strain III. Sequence analysis of the wild-type and mutant HPPDase genomic sequences identified a small deletion that produces a truncated protein in the mutant. Although it was clear from previous work that the pds1mutation affected HPPDase activity, we could not determine whether thepds1 mutation directly or indirectly affected the HPPDase enzyme (Norris et al., 1995). The PDS1 gene product could therefore be the HPPDase enzyme, a regulator of HPPDase expression or activity, or a cofactor required for HPPDase activity. We do not capture any email address. The nucleotide sequence of the originally identified, truncated expressed sequence tag (accession no. NOTE: We only request your email address so that the person you are recommending the page to knows that you wanted them to see it, and that it is not junk mail. Three complementary approaches were undertaken to determine whether the gene identified by the pds1 mutation encodes HPPDase: co-segregation of the pds1 mutation and HPPD gene, functional complementation of the pds1 mutant with the wild-type pHPPD cDNA, and DNA-sequence analysis of the wild-type and mutant HPPD alleles. Future studies will determine the consequences of overexpressing the wild-type HPPDase enzyme in plants. Mapping of pHPPD and co-segregation analysis of the pds1 mutation and the HPPD gene indicate tight linkage. 3). The 17-bp deletion in the HPPDase gene in pds1 is denoted by a boldface, italic DNA sequence and two overhead lines. In previous work we demonstrated that the biochemical basis of the Arabidopsis pds1 mutation is an inability to convert HPP to HGA (Fig. In our recent study, the first cDNA encoding flavanone-specific plant prenyltransferase, naringenin 8-dimethylallyltransferase (SfN8DT-1) from Sophora flavescens, was reported Sequence analysis of the HPPDase gene from both wild-type and homozygous pds1 mutant plants was performed to define the molecular basis of the pds1 mutation. Plastoquinone is best known for its role as an electron carrier between PSII and the Cyt b The location of the single 107-bp intron in the HPPDase genomic sequences of Ws andpds1 is denoted by an inverted, filled triangle. Peripheral neuropathy as the presenting feature of tyrosinaemia type I and effectively treated with an inhibitor of 4-hydroxyphenylpyruvate dioxygenase. In bacteria, the genes encoding enzymes corresponding to specific metabolic pathways are usually organized in operons. Genes and cDNAs encoding HPPDase have been identified from several mammalian, fungal, bacterial, and plant sources (Gershwin et al., 1987;Endo et al., 1992, 1995; Hummel et al., 1992; Ruetschi et al., 1993;Coon et al., 1994; Denoya et al., 1994; Wilson et al., 1994;Wintermeyer et al., 1994; Kaneko et al., 1995; Wyckoff et al., 1995;Garcia et al., 1997) and show between 25% and 95% identity at the amino acid level. Fibrillins are lipid-associated proteins in plastids and are ubiquitous in plants. Copyright © 2021 Elsevier B.V. or its licensors or contributors. For complementation analysis, kanamycin-resistant T2plants were crossed with PDS1/pds1 heterozygotes. This brown coloration is caused by the accumulation of ochronotic pigment, which forms upon the oxidative polymerization of HGA. Genetic dissection of carotenoid synthesis in Arabidopsis defines plastoquinone as an essential component of phytoene desaturation. Segregation analysis of progeny from plants heterozygous for both an HPPDase transgene and the pds1 mutation. HPPDase is generally present at low levels in plant tissues and has only recently been purified to homogeneity from a plant source (Garcia et al., 1997). 3). The pET15b control culture lacked a peak at 7.9 min and had a minor peak at 7.7 min, with a spectrum and absorbance maxima (271, 280, and 287 nm) that indicated that it was not HGA (Fig.3B). Plant Cell 7: 2139-2149 (1995). Two sets of primers were used to amplify genomic copies of the HPPDase gene from wild-type Ws tissue: SN418T7+10 (5′-CGTCCGAGTTTTAGCAGAGTTGG-3′) and SN418MF+11 (5′-AGAGCCAGATGTTGTAGCCC-3′) for the first 1000 bp of the gene, and SN418T7+4 (5′-CCAATTCGCAGAGTTC-3′) and SN418MF+12 (5′-CGTTTTAAATGAGATGTTGTATAAC-3′) for the last 700 bp of the gene.
