AbstractIn this study, we analyzed the metamorphosis of the marine bryozoan Bugula neritina. We observed the morphogenesis of the ancestrula. We defined three distinct pre-ancestrula stages based on the anatomy of the developing polypide and the overall morphology of pre-ancestrula. We then used an annotation based enrichment analysis tool to analyze the B. neritina transcriptome and identified over-representation of genes related to Wnt signaling pathways, suggesting its involvement in metamorphosis. Finally, we studied the temporal-spatial gene expression studies of several Wnt pathway genes. We found that one of the Wnt ligand, BnWnt10, was expressed spatially opposite to the Wnt antagonist BnsFRP within the blastemas, which is the presumptive polypide. Down-stream components of the canonical Wnt signaling pathway were exclusively expressed in the blastemas. Bn?catenin and BnFz5/8 were exclusively expressed in the blastemas throughout the metamorphosis. Based on the genes expression patterns, we propose that BnWnt10 and BnsFRP may relate to the patterning of the polypide, in which the two genes served as positional signals and contributed to the polarization of the blastemas. Another Wnt ligand, BnWnt6, was expressed in the apical part of the pre-ancestrula epidermis. Overall, our findings suggest that the Wnt signaling pathway may be important to the pattern formation of polypide and the development of epidermis. © 2012 Wong et al.

Guard Cell Signal Transduction Network: Advances in Understanding Abscisic Acid, CO2, and Ca2+ SignalingKim, Tae-Houn; Böhmer, Maik; Hu, Honghong; Nishimura, Noriyuki; Schroeder, Julian I. (Annual Review of Plant Biology, Annual Reviews, 2010-05-04) [Article]Stomatal pores are formed by pairs of specialized epidermal guard cells and serve as major gateways for both CO2 influx into plants from the atmosphere and transpirational water loss of plants. Because they regulate stomatal pore apertures via integration of both endogenous hormonal stimuli and environmental signals, guard cells have been highly developed as a model system to dissect the dynamics and mechanisms of plant-cell signaling. The stress hormone ABA and elevated levels of CO2 activate complex signaling pathways in guard cells that are mediated by kinases/phosphatases, secondary messengers, and ion channel regulation. Recent research in guard cells has led to a new hypothesis for how plants achieve specificity in intracellular calcium signaling: CO2 and ABA enhance (prime) the calcium sensitivity of downstream calcium-signaling mechanisms. Recent progress in identification of early stomatal signaling components are reviewed here, including ABA receptors and CO2-binding response proteins, as well as systems approaches that advance our understanding of guard cell-signaling mechanisms.
Software of prediction models for 12 poly(A) signal variants in human and feature vectors of regions covering [-300,poly(A) hexamer,+300] for these 12 signal variants.Albalawi, Fahad; Chahid, Abderrazak; Guo, Xingang; Albaradei, Somayah; Magana-Mora, Arturo; Jankovic, Boris R.; Uludag, Mahmut; Van Neste, Christophe; Essack, Magbubah; Laleg-Kirati, Taous-Meriem; Bajic, Vladimir B. (Mendeley Data, 2018-11-15) [Dataset]We used human genome hg38 from GENCODE folder at EBI ftp server (ftp://ftp.ebi.ac.uk/pub/databases/gencode/Gencode_human/release_28/GRCh38.primary_assembly.genome.fa.gz) Positive set (PAS sequences) Using GENCODE annotation for poly(A) (ftp://ftp.ebi.ac.uk/pub/databases/gencode/Gencode_human/release_28/gencode.v28.polyAs.gff3.gz) We selected poly(A) signal annotation. Using bedtools-slop option, we found regions extended 300 bp upstream and 300 bp downstream of the poly(A) hexamer. With the bedtools-getfasta option, we extracted 606 bp fasta sequences from these regions. After eliminating duplicates, we obtained 37’516 presumed true functional poly(A) signal (PAS) sequences. Sequences from this set will be denoted as positive. Negative set (pseudo-PAS sequences) For the negative set, we looked for regions extended outside the region covering 1’000 bp upstream and downstream of the positive poly(A) hexamer signal using bedtools-complement. Homer tool was used to find matches for the 12 most frequent human poly(A) variants. Since the number of matches was huge, sampling was used to select 37’516 pseudo-PAS sequences. Sampling was done from each chromosome proportionally to the chromosomes lengths and also to the expected frequency of the poly(A) variants. Out of these predictions, for each PAS hexamer, we selected the same number of pseudo-PAS sequences as in the positive set. Training and testing sets We selected randomly from each of the positive and negative datasets 20% of sequences for the independent test data. The testing set thus consisted of 15’020 sequences. The remaining data represented the training set that consisted of 60’012 sequences. Both datasets are balanced relative to the true PAS and pseudo-PAS sequences. Processed sequences These sequences are processed by the Matlab code we provide, and sequences are converted to feature vectors of length 205. To the end of each of these features vectors, the class label ('1' for true PAS and '0' for pseudo-PAS) is added. These processed sequences are provided here. Prediction models In addition, we provide software encoding final models for prediction of each of the 12 PAS variants. For each PAS variant, there is a Linear Regression model and a Deep Neural Network (DNN) model.
Karrikin Signaling Acts Parallel to and Additively with Strigolactone Signaling to Regulate Rice Mesocotyl Elongation in Darkness.Zheng, Jianshu; Hong, Kai; Zeng, Longjun; Wang, Lei; Kang, Shujing; Qu, Minghao; Dai, Jiarong; Zou, Linyuan; Zhu, Lixin; Tang, Zhanpeng; Meng, Xiangbing; Wang, Bing; Hu, Jiang; Zhao, Yonghui; Zeng, Dali; Cui, Peng; Wang, Quan; Qian, Qian; Wang, Yonghong; Li, Jiayang; Xiong, Guosheng (The Plant cell, American Society of Plant Biologists (ASPB), 2020-07-14) [Article]Seedling emergence in monocots depends mainly on mesocotyl elongation, requiring the coordination between developmental signals and environmental stimuli. Strigolactones (SLs) and karrikins are butenolide compounds that regulate various developmental processes; both are able to negatively regulate rice (Oryza sativa) mesocotyl elongation in the dark. Here, we report that a karrikin signaling complex, DWARF 14-LIKE (D14L)-DWARF 3 (D3)-Oryza sativa SUPPRESSOR OF MAX2 1 (OsSMAX1), regulates rice mesocotyl elongation in the dark. We demonstrate that D14L recognizes the karrikin signal and recruits the SCFD3 ubiquitin ligase for the ubiquitination and degradation of OsSMAX1, mirroring the SL-induced and D14- and D3-dependent ubiquitination and degradation of D53. Overexpression of OsSMAX1 promoted mesocotyl elongation in the dark, whereas knockout of OsSMAX1 suppressed the elongated-mesocotyl phenotypes of d14l and d3 but had little effect on their shoot branching phenotype. OsSMAX1 localizes in nucleus and interacts with TOPLESS-RELATED PROTEINs (TPRs), regulating downstream gene expression. Moreover, we showed that the GR24 enantiomers GR245DS and GR24ent-5DS specifically inhibit mesocotyl elongation and regulate downstream gene expression in a D14- and D14L-dependent manner, respectively. Our work revealed that karrikin and SL signaling play parallel and additive roles in modulating downstream genes expression and negatively regulating mesocotyl elongation in the dark.
