The cell cycle in cotton (Gossypium hirsutum) fibers is poorly understood. The objective of this study was to evaluate the cell cycle status and DNA content in developing cotton fibers. The DNA content and cell cycle distribution in fiber and hypocotyl cells were determined by flow cytometry. Expression levels of minichrosomal maintenance protein (mcm), cyclin B, and a retinoblastoma-like protein (rb) genes were determined with real-time PCR in fibers and dividing and nondividing tissues.

Figures, Tables, and Topics from this paper

Analysis of gene expression in cotton fiber initials
TLDR
Analysis of genes expressed in fiber initials identified a unique stage in fiber development characterized by an increase in Endoplasmic Reticulum and Ca+2 levels that occurred between 0 and 1 dpa. Expand
Independent replication of mitochondrial genes supports the transcriptional program in developing fiber cells of cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.).
TLDR
Surprisingly, it was found that when mitochondrial genes were highly transcribed, they also had very high copy numbers, suggesting that in developing cotton fibers, increased mitochondrial sublimon replication may support increases in gene transcription. Expand
Isolation and characterization of a cotton cdh-like gene
TLDR
Evaluation and analysis of genes involved in regulation of DNA synthesis and other aspects of cell cycle regulation identified relevant genes that were present in fiber cells though usually at low levels, which are consistent with the lower levels of polyploidy reported for cotton fiber. Expand
A majority of cotton genes are expressed in single-celled fiber
TLDR
Comparisons of gene expression in populations of developing cotton fiber cells to genetically complex reference samples derived from 6 different cotton organs demonstrated that a remarkably high proportion of the cotton genome is transcribed, with 75% of the total genome transcribed at each stage. Expand
Integrated metabolomics and genomics analysis provides new insights into the fiber elongation process in Ligon lintless-2 mutant cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.)
TLDR
This report provides the first comprehensive analysis of metabolite and transcript changes in response to the Li2 mutation in elongating fibers and will facilitate further research in understanding metabolic processes of cotton fiber elongation. Expand
MOLECULAR BIOLOGY AND PHYSIOLOGY Isolation and Characterization of an ADP-Glucose Pyrophosphorylase Gene from Gossypium hirsutum L.
TLDR
A genomic sequence with extensive similarity to an mRNA encoding the small subunit of ADPGp that is expressed in starchy stems was identified and sequenced and regulatory motifs associated with light response and expression in the seed were identified. Expand
LCM and RNA-seq analyses revealed roles of cell cycle and translational regulation and homoeolog expression bias in cotton fiber cell initiation
TLDR
Fiber cell initiation is accompanied by cell cycle arrest coupled with active ribosome biosynthesis, spatial-temporal regulation of phytohormones and MYB transcription factors, and homoeolog expression bias of cell cycle and ribosomal protein subunit genes. Expand
Isolation and Characterization of an ADP-Glucose Pyrophosphorylase Gene from Gossypium hirsutum
Roots and stems of cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) plants store photoassimilate as starch. Partitioning of fixed carbon between starch in vegetative storage tissues and seed is likely to impact cottonExpand
Rapid cell expansion and cellulose synthesis regulated by plasmodesmata and sugar: insights from the single-celled cotton fibre.

TLDR
Cell biology and gene expression studies showed a temporary closure of fibre plasmodesmata (PD) at the rapid phase of elongation, and the duration of the PD closure correlates positively with the final fibre length attained, supporting the view that PD closure may be required for fibres to achieve extended elongation. Expand
Induction of cotton ovule culture fibre branching by co-expression of cotton BTL, cotton SIM, and Arabidopsis STI genes
TLDR
The findings suggest that the distinctive developmental mechanism of cotton fibres does not depend on endoreduplication, and this important component may be a relic function that can be activated in fibre cells. Expand

Increased nuclear DNA content in developing cotton fiber cells.
TLDR
The results imply that during the early stages of development fiber cell nuclei either selectively amplify certain sequences or enter S-phase replicating a portion of their genome. Expand
Cotton fibers can undergo cell division.
TLDR
It is shown that a subpopulation of fiber cells, fully differentiated in appearance, retain cell cycle functions up to 4 d postanthesis, and the addition of IAA and GA3 to the medium lowers the frequency of multicelled fibers. Expand
Production of micronucleoli and onset of cotton fiber growth
TLDR
Experiments focused on the early development of fiber cells of cotton ovules produced two novel findings: one biological, the other methodological, involving a cytological means of directly counting the number of fibers produced on young ovules at 1–4 dpa. Expand
Chronology of the differentiation of cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) fiber cells
TLDR
The results define the timing of fiber differentiation from epidermal cells, and also define a window of time when differentiated cells are capable of further development. Expand
Estimation of the nuclear DNA content of gossypium species.

The purpose of this research was to examine the standardization procedures used for DNA content determinations with flow cytometry as applied to Gossypium, and generate revised DNA content estimates for all available GOSSypium species using best-standard practices. Expand
Cell-cycle-regulated transcription of A- and B-type plant cyclin genes in synchronous cultures.

Results indicate the important role of transcriptional regulation in the oscillations of cyclin mRNA levels during the cell cycle and suggest CYS along with the soybean cyc1GM can be classified into a distinct subclass. Expand

The conservation of Rb and E2F proteins in plants suggests that this pathway is therefore conserved in all higher eukaryotes, although it is absent in fungi and yeasts. Expand
MOLECULAR BIOLOGY AND PHYSIOLOGY Expression and Characterization of a UDP-Glucose Pyrophosphorylase Gene in Cotton
TLDR
It is demonstrated that cotton fibers, seeds, and leaves express the same UDPGp gene at various stages of development, and there is an increase in the steady state level of UDPGP mRNA concomitant with secondary cell wall biosynthesis. Expand

TLDR
In this case, cell growth and, later, cell differentiation were inhibited, suggesting an important role for DNA synthesis in growth and patterning, and this technique developed a technique to visualize living shoot apical meristems using the confocal microscope. Expand
