Abstract

Vacuolar H+-ATPase (V-ATPase) is a vital protein complex involved in abiotic stress response in plants. The G subunit of Juglans regia (JrVHAG1) was previously identified as a drought tolerance-related gene involved in the ABA (abscisic acid)-signal pathway. Heavy metal stress is becoming a major detriment for plant growth, development, and production. In order to understand the role of JrVHAG1, the potential function mechanism of JrVHAG1 exposed to CdCl2 stress was confirmed in this study. Transcription of JrVHAG1 was induced by ABA and increased to 58.89-fold (roots) and 7.38-fold (leaves) and by CdCl2 to 2.65- (roots) and 11.42-fold (leaves) relative to control, respectively. Moreover, when treated simultaneously with ABA and CdCl2 (ABA+CdCl2), JrVHAG1 was up-regulated to 110.13- as well as 165.42-fold relative to control in the roots and leaves, accordingly. Compared to the wild type (WT) Arabidopsis plants, the transgenic plants with overexpression of JrVHAG1 (G2, G6, and G9) exhibited increased seed germination rate, biomass accumulation, proline content, and activities of superoxide dismutase (SOD) and peroxidase (POD) under ABA, CdCl2, and ABA+CdCl2 treatments. In contrast, the reactive oxygen species (ROS) staining, malondialdehyde (MDA) content, hydrogen dioxide (H2O2) content, as well as electrolyte leakage (EL) rates of transgenic seedlings were all lower than those of WT exposed to ABA, CdCl2 and ABA+CdCl2 stresses. Furthermore, a 1200 bp promoter fragment of JrVHAG1 was isolated by analyzing the genome of J. regia, in which the cis-elements were identified. This JrVHAG1 promoter fragment showed expression activity that was enhanced significantly when subjected to the above treatments. Yeast one-hybrid assay and transient expression analysis demonstrated that JrMYB2 specifically bound to the MYBCORE motif and shared similar expression patterns with JrVHAG1 under ABA, CdCl2 and ABA+CdCl2 stress conditions. Our results suggested that the JrVHAG1 gene functions as a CdCl2 stress response regulator by participating in ABA-signal pathway and MYB transcription regulation network. JrVHAG1 gene is a useful candidate gene for heavy metal stress tolerance in plant molecular breeding.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. 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 24 January 2018.
All research outputs
#11,032,517
of 12,413,055 outputs
Outputs from BMC Plant Biology
#1,226
of 1,579 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#286,668
of 339,791 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Plant Biology
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,413,055 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,579 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.2. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
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 339,791 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
