Little is known about the way developmental cues affect how cells interpret their environment. We characterized the transcriptional response to high salinity of different cell layers and developmental stages of the Arabidopsis root and found that transcriptional responses are highly constrained by developmental parameters. These transcriptional changes lead to the differential regulation of specific biological functions in subsets of cell layers, several of which correspond to observable… 

Cell identity regulators link development and stress responses in the Arabidopsis root.

An environmentally responsive transcriptional state modulates cell identities during root development

Roots are fundamental organs for plant development and response to their environment: they anchor the plant to its growth substrate, uptake nutrients and water vital to plant growth, and can sense

A Spatio-Temporal Understanding of Growth Regulation during the Salt Stress Response in Arabidopsis[W]

This work explored the phenotypic and transcriptional events involved in the acclimation of the Arabidopsis thaliana seedling root to a rapid change in salinity and found that growth is dynamically regulated with a period of quiescence followed by recovery then homeostasis.

Single-cell transcriptome analyses recapitulate the cellular and developmental responses to abiotic stresses in rice

It is found that abiotic stresses not only affect gene expression in a cell-type-specific manner but also have impacts on the physical size of cells and the composition of cell populations.

Epidermal cells that undergo cell death differentially express cell identity genes

It is hypothesized that local induction of cell death is dependent on epidermal cell identity as defined at the molecular level and induced by ethylene and H2O2.

Single-cell transcriptome atlas of the leaf and root of rice seedlings.

Decipher the Molecular Response of Plant Single Cell Types to Environmental Stresses

The various -omic studies performed on different plant single cell type models are described to better understand plant cell response to biotic and abiotic stresses.

Transcriptional profiling of Arabidopsis root hairs and pollen defines an apical cell growth signature

This study proposes that maintaining apical growth mechanisms synchronized with energy yielding might require a combinatorial network of transcriptional regulation, and proposes that this study should constitute the foundation for further genetic and physiological dissection of the mechanisms underlying apical grew cells.



Integration of Arabidopsis thaliana stress-related transcript profiles, promoter structures, and cell-specific expression

A common stress transcriptome is defined that apparently represents universal cell-level stress responses in Arabidopsis, and known stress-related 5' cis-elements on a genome-wide scale are confirmed, and secondary motifs are identified.

Cell-type-specific calcium responses to drought, salt and cold in the Arabidopsis root.

Targeted expression of aequorin circumvented the technical difficulties involved in fluorescent dye injection as well as the lack of cell specificity of constitutively expressed aEquorin, and revealed a new level of complexity in root calcium signalling.

A High-Resolution Root Spatiotemporal Map Reveals Dominant Expression Patterns

Methods that combine microarray expression profiles of a high-resolution set of developmental time points within a single Arabidopsis root and a comprehensive map of nearly all root cell types demonstrate transcriptionally rich and complex programs that define Arabidrosis root development in both space and time.

Expression of cell cycle regulatory genes and morphological alterations in response to salt stress in Arabidopsis thaliana

The data indicate that salt stress interferes with cell cycle regulation at the transcriptional level, resulting in an adaptive growth response in Arabidopsis thaliana.

Positional Signaling Mediated by a Receptor-like Kinase in Arabidopsis

A new gene, SCRAMBLED (SCM), is described, required for cells to appropriately interpret their location within the developing root epidermis and likely enables developing epidermal cells to detect positional cues and establish an appropriate cell-type pattern.

A Gene Expression Map of the Arabidopsis Root

Localization of expression of more than 22,000 genes in the Arabidopsis root correlates groups of genes to specific cell fates and should serve to guide reverse genetics.

Environmentally Induced Plasticity of Root Hair Development in Arabidopsis1

Divergence in root hair patterning was most pronounced among mutants with defects in genes that affect the first stages of differentiation, suggesting that nutritional signals are perceived at an early stage of epidermal cell development.

Integration of Plant Responses to Environmentally Activated Phytohormonal Signals

The nuclear-localized growth-repressing DELLA proteins of Arabidopsis integrate responses to independent hormonal and environmental signals of adverse conditions to permit flexible and appropriate modulation of plant growth in response to changes in natural environments.

TRIPTYCHON and CAPRICE mediate lateral inhibition during trichome and root hair patterning in Arabidopsis

The same lateral inhibition mechanism seems to be involved in both de novo patterning and position‐dependent cell determination in the root epidermis, proposing a model explaining trichome and root hair patterning by a common mechanism.
