inflorescence in legumes

Mutants in the UNI homologs of L. japonicus, LjLFY and M. truncatula, SINGLE LEAFLET1 (SGL1) have also been described and both produce flowers with a very similar phenotype to those of uni (Dong et al., 2005; Wang et al., 2008a). doi: 10.1046/j.1365-313x.2001.00974.x, Bernard, R.

The stem cell population of Arabidopsis shoot meristems in maintained by a regulatory loop between the CLAVATA and WUSCHEL genes. This would represent a similar situation to the overexpression of TFL1 genes in Arabidopsis or tobacco, which leads to an extreme inhibition of flowering (Ratcliffe et al., 1998; Amaya et al., 1999). Arabidopsis thaliana, where the genetic control of inflorescence development is best known, has a simple inflorescence, where the primary inflorescence meristem directly produces the flowers, which are thus borne in the main inflorescence axis. 34, 169–194. 10.1105/tpc.11.8.1405 doi: 10.1007/s10681-006-9219-z, Steeves, T.

In this review, we describe the current knowledge on the genetic control of inflorescence architecture in grain legumes, and discuss the biotechnological potential of this knowledge for the development and selection of more productive and sustainable legume crop varieties. Upper nodes of the plant contain secondary inflorescences (I2) which produce 1–2 flowers (F, open circles) and terminate into a stub (triangles). Development of a new diagnostic marker for growth habit selection in faba bean (Vicia faba L.) breeding. Crit. Bot. 40, 707–722. While in the WT the main inflorescence and the lateral inflorescences (appearing in the axil of cauline leaves) show indeterminate growth, in the tfl1 mutant the main inflorescence ends into a terminal flower (a fruit in this image) and lateral branches are replaced by solitary flowers. These platforms are currently available for pea, M. truncatula, L. japonicus and chickpea (Perry et al., 2003; Dalmais et al., 2008; Le Signor et al., 2009; Varshney et al., 2014a), and will likely be developed for other grain legumes as well, providing a rich source of allelic variation for breeding purposes with potential to be used in virtually any diploid crop legume. 69, 731–741.

Genome sequencing reveals agronomically important loci in rice using MutMap. CRISPR has been showed to efficiently work in several plants like Arabidopsis and rice, where it was possible to engineer site-directed mutations in the genes of interest (Li et al., 2013; Shan et al., 2013; Lozano-Juste and Cutler, 2014). Genetic dissection of plant growth habit in chickpea. FIGURE 3. The SAM is located at the tip of the plant shoot and contains a central pool of stem cells that are able to self-maintain together with peripheral dividing cells required for organ initiation (Steeves and Sussex, 1989).

However, pim I2 meristems, rather than producing floral meristems, produce new I2 meristems in a reiterative manner (Figure 3; Taylor et al., 2002; Berbel et al., 2012), somehow resembling the proliferative inflorescences of the Arabidopsis ap1 cal double mutant (Kempin et al., 1995). A basic classification divides inflorescences into two groups, depending on whether the primary inflorescence axis terminates into a flower or not. doi: 10.1105/tpc.110.081042, Hofer, J. M.

This shows that in pea det mutants, rather than the conversion of the inflorescence meristem into floral meristem observed in Arabidopsis tfl1 mutants, what really takes place is the conversion of the I1 meristem into an I2 meristem (Figure 3; Singer et al., 1990). The architecture of the inflorescence, the shoot system that bears the flowers, is a main component of the huge diversity of forms found in flowering … Taken into account the great economic importance of grain legumes, which include broadly used species for food and feed, it is of great interest to understand the genetic bases of inflorescence architecture in these species. This inhibitor would normally prevent flowers from arising on the inflorescence apex but in tfl mutants it may readily fall below its threshold of activity. doi: 10.1105/tpc.108.064071. 12, 235–239. 9.

In papilionoid legumes, the raceme is the most common type of inflorescence. Plant Breed. Cell Dev. (2012). Clipboard, Search History, and several other advanced features are temporarily unavailable. In some legume species, particularly in pea, key regulators of inflorescence architecture have been isolated and functionally characterized and we can make rather reliable predictions of which of these genes should be used, and how, to improve inflorescence architecture in grain legumes for easier crop management and a higher and stable yield. The Medicago genome provides insight into the evolution of rhizobial symbioses. Arabidopsis thaliana is one of the best-known examples of simple indeterminate inflorescences. The combination of the increased understanding of the genetic networks controlling legume inflorescence architecture and the use of these genomic tools and resources, promises a rapid progress in obtention of new legume varieties with improved performance, which will be instrumental in developing a sustainable agriculture for the future.

Please enable it to take advantage of the complete set of features! According to the proposed model, elevated expression of a VEG1 gene in the apical I1 meristem should repress DET expression and cause determination, hence the phenotype of the dt2 mutants is consistent with the proposed repression of DET by VEG1 also being conserved in other grain legumes. doi: 10.1105/tpc.114.126938, Prenner, G.

Transition from vegetative to I1 meristem apparently takes place but the I1 meristem produces lateral meristems that, unable to acquire I2 identity, continue to develop as I1s, producing vegetative branches that replace I2 inflorescences (Figure 3; Gottschalk, 1979; Reid and Murfet, 1984; Berbel et al., 2012). As mentioned above, legumes are characterized by a compound indeterminate inflorescence (Weberling, 1989b; Benlloch et al., 2007; Prenner, 2013; Hofer and Noel Ellis, 2014). Sci. This incomplete reversion suggests that other genes may act redundantly with AP1 in the specification of floral meristem fate. Reid, J. Briefly, the SAM undergoes a transition from a vegetative meristem to a primary inflorescence (I1) meristem, with indeterminate growth. In agreement with its proposed function in the control of I2 meristem identity, VEG1/PsFULc gene is expressed after floral transition in the inflorescence apex, specifically in I2 meristems, just before PIM upregulation and floral meristem development, and its expression is not detected in I1 or in floral meristems. doi: 10.1038/nbt.2095, PubMed Abstract | CrossRef Full Text | Google Scholar, Abe, M., Kobayashi, Y., Yamamoto, S., Daimon, Y., Yamaguchi, A., Ikeda, Y., et al.

In the loss-of-function uni mutants, floral meristems are not correctly specified and rather than flowers they produce proliferating structures, mainly formed by sepals and carpels. According to what is known, it would seem that isolation of mutants in TFL1 homologs should be the most direct way to obtain determinate varieties of grain legume crop species. Elucidating the genetic networks that control inflorescence development, and how they vary between different species, is essential to understanding the evolution of plant form and to being able to breed key architectural traits in crop species. The present state of knowledge of heredity and variation in pea. Agri. 10.1126/science.1115983 Opin. Nevertheless, the uni phenotype is less severe than that of lfy mutants as, in the strict sense, replacement of flowers by branches is not observed in uni mutants; instead, the proliferating uni flowers rather resemble the branched flowers of Arabidopsis ap1 mutants. (1999). Front. On the contrary, in indeterminate inflorescences the SAM is never converted into a floral meristem and the inflorescence meristem continues producing floral meristems until senescence, as for example, occurs in the model plant species Arabidopsis thaliana (Figure 1; Weberling, 1989a; Benlloch et al., 2007).

Harvesting the promising fruits of genomics: applying genome sequencing technologies to crop breeding. Most chickpea genotypes have only one flower per I2, and it has been proposed that this solitary flower could be a reduction of a multi-flowered ancestor (Prenner, 2013). This simple model of mutual repression between TFL1 and LFY/AP1 elegantly explains the maintenance of the indeterminate inflorescence meristem in Arabidopsis and the formation of floral meristems at its flanks. 34, 43–104. II. Bot. Mutations in the TFL1 gene cause a conversion of the inflorescence meristems into floral meristems, producing the abrupt termination of the main inflorescence stem in a TFL and the substitution of lateral branches by solitary axillary flowers (Figure 2; Shannon and Meeks-Wagner, 1991; Alvarez et al., 1992; Schultz and Haughn, 1993). An increase of the vegetative portion of the plant can be obtained through a delay in flowering or by inhibition of formation of secondary inflorescences (Figure 4). Development 119, 745–765. Inflorescence architecture depends on the identity and activity of the meristems in the inflorescence apex, which determines when flowers are formed, how many are produced and their relative position in the inflorescence axis. Finally, as it was also observed that loss-of-function of PIM leads to a missexpression of VEG1 in the newly formed “floral” meristems, this ectopic VEG1 expression would explain why these meristems do not acquire floral fate but instead develop as I2 meristems. 153, 52–65.

The Medicago mtpim mutant also exhibits a proliferating inflorescence phenotype, somehow more severe than the pea mutants, where floral meristems are replaced by proliferating I2 meristems (Benlloch et al., 2006). This inflorescence is found in Euphorbiaceae family like Euphorbia, Poinsettia, Pedilanthus. Another gene with a key function in the in the initiation of floral meristems in pea is the LFY homolog UNI (Hofer et al., 1997).

The double-podded gene in chickpea improvement. 71, 109–143. Therefore, the appearance of the I2 meristem supposes an additional level of complexity in the legume inflorescence, as compared to Arabidopsis, and different genes have been coopted to orchestrate the development of the compound inflorescence in legumes.

The molecular identification of the DET gene showed that indeed it corresponds to a homolog of the Arabidopsis TFL1 gene, which was named PsTFL1a (Foucher et al., 2003). Open circles represent flowers and arrows represent indeterminate shoots. DET and VEG1 repress each other expression, ensuring the balance between the indeterminate development of the apical primary inflorescence (I1) and the formation of secondary inflorescence (I2) meristems at its flanks. Science 275, 80–83. In this context, genes controlling inflorescence development are instrumental for the generation of breeding and biotechnological tools to design new legume crops better adapted to different environmental conditions. In contrast, legumes represent a more complex inflorescence type, the compound inflorescence, where flowers are not directly borne in the main inflorescence axis but, instead, they are formed by secondary or higher order inflorescence meristems. 103, 13–22. (2003) also showed that the early flowering phenotype of recessive mutations in the pea LATE FLOWERING loci (LF, described by Weller and Ortega, in this Research Topic) was due to mutations in another TFL1-like gene, PsTFL1c, a paralogue of DET/PsTFL1a. 10.1111/j.1365-313X.1992.00103.x Euphytica 128, 231–235.
