Sulfur is an essential nutrient for plant growth and development. Sulfur is a constituent of proteins, the plasma membrane and cell walls, among other important cellular components. To obtain new insights into the gene regulatory networks underlying the sulfate response, we performed an integrative meta-analysis of transcriptomic data from five different sulfate experiments available in public databases. This bioinformatic approach allowed us to identify a robust set of genes whose expression… Expand
Transcriptomic analysis at organ and time scale reveals gene regulatory networks controlling the sulfate starvation response of Solanum lycopersicum
TLDR
Comparative analysis showed that a major part of the Arabidopsis and tomato transcriptomic response to sulfate starvation is conserved between these plants and allowed for the identification of processes specifically regulated in tomato at the transcript level, including the control of internal phosphate levels.

Sulfur Deprivation Modulates Salicylic Acid Responses via Nonexpressor of Pathogenesis-Related Gene 1 in Arabidopsis thaliana
TLDR
A relationship between S and SA/JA-dependent defense mechanisms in Arabidopsis is observed and changes in the macronutrient concentration on the expression of PR1, a well-characterized marker in the SA-pathway, and PDF1.2 and LOX2 are investigated. Expand
Integrating multiple omics to dissect the common and specific molecular changes occurring in Arabidopsis thaliana (L.) under nitrate and sulfate chronic limitations.
TLDR
Characterizing the metabolomic, proteomic and transcriptomic changes occurring in Arabidopsis leaves under chronic nitrate (Low-N) and chronic sulfate ( low-S) limitations showed the importance of glucosinolate as buffering molecules for N and S management. Expand
Overexpression of the Selective Autophagy Cargo Receptor NBR1 Modifies Plant Response to Sulfur Deficit
TLDR
Interestingly, NBR1 overexpressing seedlings have significantly shorter roots than wild type when grown in nutrient deficient conditions in the presence of TOR kinase inhibitors, which probably results from excessive autophagy induction by the additive effect of N BR1 overexpression, starvation, and TOR inhibition. Expand
Direct sulphate-TOR signalling controls transcriptional reprogramming for shoot apex activation in Arabidopsis
TLDR
Systematic comparison between the sulphate- and glucose-TOR controlled transcriptome revealed that, as the central growth integrator, TOR kinase can sense different upstream nutrient signals to control both shared and unique transcriptome networks, therefore, precisely modulate plant proliferation, growth and stress responses. Expand
Sulphur systems biology—making sense of omics data
TLDR
There is still room for improvement in integrating the findings from studies of metabolomes, proteomes, and metabolic fluxes into a single unifying concept and to generate consistent models, and it is suggested a joint effort of the sulphur research community to standardize data acquisition. Expand
Evolutionary Analyses Reveal Diverged Patterns of SQUAMOSA Promoter Binding Protein-Like (SPL) Gene Family in Oryza Genus
TLDR
The results shed light on that different evolutionary rates and duplication events might result in divergent evolutionary patterns in each lineage of SPL genes, providing a guide in exploring diverse function in the rice gene family among six closely related Oryza species. Expand
Central Role of Adenosine 5′-Phosphosulfate Reductase in the Control of Plant Hydrogen Sulfide Metabolism
TLDR
As a critical enzyme in regulating sulfur assimilation, APR is probably critical for H2S generation during plants’ response to diverse environmental factors. Expand
Coordinating Sulfur Pools under Sulfate Deprivation.
TLDR
This work puts particular focus on the general OAS-responsive genes but also elaborate on the specific roles of SDI1 and SDI2 genes, which downregulate the glucosinolate pool size, and highlights the key open questions in sulfur partitioning. Expand

Based on the correlative analysis of gene expression patterns, it is suggested that a complex co-ordination of systematic responses to sulfur depletion is provided via integration of flavonoid, auxin and jasmonate pathway elements. Expand
Omics-based identification of Arabidopsis Myb transcription factors regulating aliphatic glucosinolate biosynthesis
TLDR
Two R2R3-Myb transcription factors are found that positively control the biosynthesis of GSLs in Arabidopsis thaliana by an integrated omics approach and a working model for regulation of GSL production involving these genes, renamed Production of Methionine-Derived Glucosinolate (PMG) 1 and 2 are postulated.

Aberrant gene expression in the Arabidopsis SULTR1;2 mutants suggests a possible regulatory role for this sulfate transporter in response to sulfur nutrient status.
TLDR
The isolation and characterization of two novel allelic mutants of Arabidopsis thaliana show increased expression of a sulfur deficiency-activated gene β-glucosidase 28 (BGLU28) and the genetic evidence suggests that SULTR1;2 may have a regulatory role in response to sulfur nutrient status. Expand

TLDR
A positive correlation between the changes of expression levels by sulfur deficiency and by OAS treatment among the clones tested is revealed, suggesting that mRNA accumulation of a number of genes under sulfur deficiency is mainly controlled by Oas concentrations in tissues. Expand
