Tomato is an important crop from nutritional and economical points of view, and it is grown in greenhouses, where special substrates and the use of recycled water imply an increased risk of Cd accumulation. We investigated tomato root responses to low (10 microM) and high (100 microM) Cd concentrations at the root proteome level. Root extract proteome maps(More)
Plants grown under iron deficiency show different morphological, biochemical and physiological changes. These changes include, among others, the elicitation of different strategies to improve the acquisition of Fe from the rhizosphere, the adjustment of Fe homeostasis processes and a reorganization of carbohydrate metabolism. The application of modern(More)
The generally low bioavailability of iron in aerobic soil systems forced plants to evolve sophisticated genetic strategies to improve the acquisition of iron from sparingly soluble and immobile iron pools. To distinguish between conserved and species-dependent components of such strategies, we analyzed iron deficiency-induced changes in the transcriptome of(More)
Iron deficiency is a yield-limiting factor with major implications for field crop production in one-third of the world's agricultural areas, especially those with high soil CaCO(3). In the present work, a two-dimensional gel electrophoresis proteomic approach was combined with a study on the riboflavin synthesis pathway, including qPCR and riboflavin(More)
The root accumulation and excretion of riboflavin (Rbfl) and Rbfl derivatives have been studied in the model legume species Medicago truncatula, grown in hydroponics in two different Fe deficiency conditions, with and without CaCO(3). Using high resolution mass spectrometry techniques coupled to liquid chromatography, three different flavin derivatives not(More)
Medicago truncatula constitutes a good model for Strategy I plants, since when this plant is challenged with Fe shortage the most important root physiological responses induced by Fe deficiency are developed, including the yellowing of root tips. A better understanding of the mechanisms involved in root adaptation to Fe deficiency in M. truncatula may(More)
The changes in the root extract protein profile of the Prunus hybrid GF 677 rootstock (P. dulcis × P. persica) grown in hydroponics as affected by Fe deficiency and short-term (24 h) Fe resupply have been studied by 2-dimensional gel electrophoresis-based techniques. A total of 335 spots were consistently found in the gels. Iron deficiency caused above(More)
Due to its ease to donate or accept electrons, iron (Fe) plays a crucial role in respiration and metabolism, including tetrapyrrole synthesis, in virtually all organisms. In plants, Fe is a component of the photosystems and thus essential for photosynthesis. Fe deficiency compromises chlorophyll (Chl) synthesis, leading to interveinal chlorosis in(More)
With the exception of the grasses, plants rely on a reduction-based iron (Fe) uptake system that is compromised by high soil pH, leading to severe chlorosis and reduced yield in crop plants. We recently reported that iron deficiency triggers the production of secondary metabolites that are beneficial for Fe uptake in particular at high external pH when iron(More)
Protein profiles of inner (IE) and outer (OE) chloroplast envelope membrane preparations from pea were studied using shotgun nLC-MS/MS and two-dimensional electrophoresis, and 589 protein species (NCBI entries) were identified. The relative enrichment of each protein in the IE/OE pair of membranes was used to provide an integrated picture of the chloroplast(More)
