Abstract [en]

The photosynthetic apparatus is composed of proteins encoded by genes from both the nucleus and the chloroplast. To ensure that the photosynthetic complexes are assembled stoichiometrically and to enable their rapid reorganization in response to a changing environment, the plastids emit signals that regulate nuclear gene expression to match the status of the plastids. One of the plastid signals, the chlorophyll intermediate Mg-ProtoporphyrinIX (Mg-ProtoIX) accumulates under stress conditions and acts as a negative regulator of photosynthetic gene expression. By taking advantage of the photoreactive property of tetrapyrroles, Mg-ProtoIX could be visualized in the cells using confocal laser scanning spectroscopy. Our results demonstrate that Mg-ProtoIX accumulated both in the chloroplast and in the cytosol during stress conditions. Thus, the signaling metabolite is exported from the chloroplast, transmitting the plastid signal to the cytosol. Our results from the Mg-ProtoIX over- and underaccumulating mutants copper response defect and genome uncoupled5, respectively, demonstrate that the expression of both nuclear- and plastid-encoded photosynthesis genes is regulated by the accumulation of Mg-ProtoIX. Thus, stress-induced accumulation of the signaling metabolite Mg-ProtoIX coordinates nuclear and plastidic photosynthetic gene expression.

Abstract [en]

The chloroplast originates from an endosymbiotic event 1.5 billion years ago, when a free living photosynthetic bacteria was engulfed by a eukaryotic host. The chloroplastic genome has through evolution lost many genes to the nuclear genome of the host. To coordinate the gene expression between the two genomes, plants have evolved two types of communication, nucleus-to-plastid (anterograde) and plastid-to-nucleus (retrograde) signalling. This thesis will focus on retrograde communication with emphasis on redox and tetrapyrrole mediated signalling.

In this thesis, we establish the tetrapyrrole Mg-ProtoIX as an important retrograde negative regulator of nuclear encoded plastid proteins. We show that Mg-ProtoIX accumulates in both artificial and natural stress conditions, and that the accumulation is tightly correlated to regulation of nuclear gene expression. Using confocal microscopy, we could visualize Mg-ProtoIX in the cytosol during stress conditions. In addition, exogenously applied Mg-ProtoIX stayed in the cytosol and was enough to trigger a signal to the nucleus. The results presented here indicate that Mg-ProtoIX is transported out of the chloroplast to control nuclear gene expression. Mg-ProtoIX mediated repression of the nuclear gene, COR15a, occurs via the transcription factor HY5. HY5 is influenced by both plastid signals and the photoreceptors. Here, we show that photoreceptors are part of Mg-ProtoIX mediated signalling as well as excess light adaptation. We identified the blue light receptor, CRY1, as a light intensity sensor that partly utilizes HY5 in the high light response. To further understand the high light regulation of nuclear genes, we isolated a mutant with redox insensitive (rin) high light response. The rin2 mutant has a mutated plastid protein with unknown function. Characterization of the rin2 mutant revealed that the protein is important in regulating plastid gene expression as well as nuclear gene expression. The rin2 mutant is the first characterized rin mutant and could prove important in elucidating the cross-talk between redox mediated coordination between the plastid and the nuclear genome.
