important ethylene signaling for isoflavonoid mediated resistance to Rhizoctonia solani in roots The root-infecting necrotrophic fungal pathogen Rhizoctonia solani causes significant disease to all the world’s major food crops. As a model for pathogenesis of legumes we have examined the interaction of R. solani AG8 with Medicago truncatula. RNAseq analysis of the moderately resistant M. truncatula accession A17 and highly susceptible sickle (skl) mutant (defective in ethylene sensing) identified major transcriptional reprogramming early in A17. Responses specific to A17 included components ......[More] CSIRO 8

TSAR1 and TSAR2 activate triterpene saponin production in Medicago truncatula We identified two novel transcription factors ‘Triterpene Saponin Activation Regulator’ (TSAR) 1 and 2 that each activate a specific branch of saponin synthesis in M. truncatula. Therefore we generated three independent TSAR1 and three independent TSAR2 overexpression (OE) hairy root lines. As a control we raised three independent hairy root lines expressing a non-functional GUS gene. By qRT-PCR analyses and metabolite profiling of these lines, we found that TSAR1 OE leads to accumulation of non......[More] Department of Plant Biotechnology and Bioinformatics, Ghent University, Gent, Belgium Department of Plant Systems Biology,VIB, Gent, Belgium 3
importance of DNA (de)methylation and epigenetic regulations for indeterminate nodule development Epigenetic mechanisms are known to regulate gene expression but no regulators have been characterized in the context of nodule development in legumes. Here, we describe DEMETER (DME) in Medicago truncatula, a gene coding for a demethylase that is required for normal symbiosome differentiation during nodule development. MtDMEis strongly upregulated in indeterminate nodules in the differentiation zone. The role of DMEduring nodule development was analyzed by using an RNA interference approach. Thi......[More] INRA-CNRS 5

A17 and the ethylene insensitive sickle mutant interacting with the fungal root pathogen, Rhizoctonia solani AG8 This study compares the response of wild type (A17) and ethylene insensitive mutant (sickle) lines of the model legume Medicago truncatula to infection by the root-infecting necrotrophic fungal pathogen, Rhizoctonia solani AG8 (WAC10335). Two time points were taken, 2 and 7 days after inoculation along with corresponding mock-treated controls. CSIRO Agriculture and Food 8
transcriptome profiling of Agrobacterium-mediated infiltration of transcription factors to discover gene function and expression networks in plants Medicago truncatula leaves were infiltrated with Agrobacterium harbouring different transcription factors (compared to control infiltrations). Agroinfiltration results in specific transcription factor-mediated gene expression profiles. Transcriptome profiling of agroinfiltration of transcription factors allows the discovery of gene function and expression networks in plants University of Otago 2

RNA-seq of mycorrhizal Medicago truncatula roots under K+ deprivation (barrel medic) Arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) associations enhance the phosphorous and nitrogen nutrition of host plants, but little is known about their role in potassium (K+) nutrition. Medicago truncatula plants were co-cultured with the AM fungus Rhizophagus irregularis under high and low K+ regimes for six weeks. We determined how K+ deprivation affects plant development, mineral acquisition, and how these negative effects are tempered by the AM colonization. The transcriptional response of AM roots under K+......[More] Ané lab, Bacteriology, University of Wisconsin-Madison 4

Hormone treatment RNA-seq libraries were obtained from roots of Medicago truncatula A17 plants three days post germination. The seedlings were immersed in water (pH 6.8) containing the hormones at different concentrations; 1 uM IAA (Auxin), 100 nM BAP (Cytokinin) and an equal volume of the solvent control (DMSO). The seedlings were placed in the dark for 3 hours after which the root tips were removed and 40-60 roots per replicate were used.

Symbiotic Interactions and Root Development In order to better understand the commonalities and differences in lateral root and nodule development, we compared their organogenesis and correlated this with changes in gene expression. To initiate lateral roots in Medicago truncatula we turned 2-day-old seedlings 135°, before returning them to their original axis of growth, while for nodule initiation we applied droplets of Sinorhizobium meliloti on the susceptibility zone of the root. Overall design: Medicago truncatula mRNA samples from ro......[More] Tak Lee (tak.lee@slcu.cam.ac.uk) 59
Macronutrient Deficiencies 1 RNA-seq libraries were prepared from roots and shoots of plants grown under sulfur (S), potassium (K), nitrogen (N) and phosphorus depleted conditions. The response to persistent deficiency was tested by growing the plants for 3 weeks under full nutrition (FN) or under deficiency of N, P, K or S. Additional samples were collected from plants re-supplied with FN for 6 h following the nutrient-deficiency treatment. Thomas de Bang (tdb@plen.ku.dk) 24

The U-box family genes in Medicago truncatula: key elements in response to salt, cold, and drought stresses The ubiquitination pathway regulates growth, development, and stress responses in plants, and the U-box protein family of ubiquitin ligases has important roles in this pathway. Here, 64 putative U-box proteins were identified in the Medicago truncatula genome. In addition to the conserved U-box motif, other functional domains, such as the ARM, kinase, KAP, and WD40 domains, were also detected. Phylogenetic analysis of the M. truncatula U-box proteins grouped them into six subfamilies, and chromo......[More] Jiang Xi Agricultural University 12
