Abstract

Plants assimilate carbon in their photosynthetic tissues in the light. However, carbon is required during the night, and in non-photosynthetic organs. It is therefore essential that plants manage their carbon resources spatially and temporally and coordinate growth with carbon availability. In growing maize (Zea mays) leaf blades a defined developmental gradient facilitates analyses in the cell division, elongation and mature zones. We investigated the responses of the metabolome and transcriptome and polysome loading, as a qualitative proxy for protein synthesis, at dusk, dawn and 6, 14 and 24 hours into an extended night, and tracked whole leaf elongation over this time course. Starch and sugars are depleted by dawn in the mature zone, but only after an extension of the night in the elongation and division zones. Sucrose recovers partially between 14 and 24 h into the extended night in the growth zones but not the mature zone. The global metabolome and transcriptome track these zone-specific changes in sucrose. Leaf elongation and polysome loading in the growth zones also remain high at dawn, decrease between 6 and 14 h into the extended night and then partially recover indicating that growth processes are determined by local carbon status. The level of sucrose-signaling metabolite trehalose-6-phosphate, and the trehalose-6-phosphate:sucrose ratio are much higher in growth than mature zones at dusk and dawn but fall in the extended night. Candidate genes were identified by searching for transcripts that show characteristic temporal response patterns or contrasting responses to carbon starvation in growth and mature zones.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 7. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 11 October 2017.
All research outputs
#2,112,582
of 12,352,946 outputs
Outputs from Plant Physiology
#1,331
of 8,503 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#61,726
of 261,842 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Plant Physiology
#29
of 111 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,352,946 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 82nd percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 8,503 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.9. This one has done well, scoring higher than 84% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 261,842 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 76% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 111 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 73% of its contemporaries.
