Abstract [en]

Simple sugars, like glucose (Glc) and sucrose (Suc), act as signals to modulate the expression of hundreds of genes in plants. Frequently, however, it remains unclear whether this regulation is induced by the sugars themselves or by their derivatives generated in the course of carbohydrate (CH) metabolism. In the present study, we tested the relevance of different CH metabolism and allocation pathways affecting expression patterns of five selected sugar-responsive genes (bZIP63, At5g22920, BT2, MGD2, and TPS9) in Arabidopsis thaliana. In general, the expression followed diurnal changes in the overall sugar availability. However, under steady growth conditions, this response was hardly impaired in the mutants for CH metabolizing/transporting proteins (adg1, sex1, sus1-4, sus5/6, and tpt2), including also hexokinase1 (HXK1) loss- and gain-of-function plants—gin2.1 and oe3.2, respectively. In addition, transgenic plants carrying pbZIP63::GUS showed no changes in reporter-gene-expression when grown on sugar under steady-state conditions. In contrast, short-term treatments of agar-grown seedlings with 1% Glc or Suc induced pbZIP63::GUS repression, which became even more apparent in seedlings grown in liquid media. Subsequent analyses of liquid-grown gin2.1 and oe3.2 seedlings revealed that Glc -dependent regulation of the five selected genes was not affected in gin2.1, whereas it was enhanced in oe3.2 plants for bZIP63, At5g22920, and BT2. The sugar treatments had no effect on ATP/ADP ratio, suggesting that changes in gene expression were not linked to cellular energy status. Overall, the data suggest that HXK1 does not act as Glc sensor controlling bZIP63, At5g22920, and BT2 expression, but it is nevertheless required for the production of a downstream metabolic signal regulating their expression.

Abstract [en]

Throughout their life cycle, plants adjust growth in response to their developmental and environmental situation within the limits of their energetic capacities. This capacity is defined by the local sugar availability, which is constantly modulated through synthesis, transport and consumption of sugar. The monitoring of sugar presence is carried out by a complex signalling network in which simple sugars (e.g. glucose, fructose and sucrose) act as metabolic signals for the modulation of physiological processes. However, often it remains unclear whether the regulation is induced by the simple sugars themselves or by their derivatives generated during sugar metabolism. This thesis focuses on the dissection of distinct sugar signals, their generation, perception and impact on the modulation of gene expression and cell division both in cell culture and young seedlings.

Based on a stem-cell-like A. thaliana cell culture, which could be sustained in a hormone-free media, a new biological system, supplied with Xyl as the only carbon source was developed. The performance of a variety of sugar and sugar analogue treatments in this novel system allowed for the identification of sugar-responsive candidate genes, which were specifically regulated by glucose, fructose and sucrose. For several genes (e.g. bZIP63, AT5g22920, TPS9, MGD2 and BT2), this regulation required both sugar transport into the cytosol and metabolisation for the generation of the signal. Furthermore, gene expression analyses in young A. thaliana seedlings indicated the requirement for the catalytic activity of hexokinase 1 in the regulation of bZIP63, Atg22920 and BT2 under conditions of a perturbed carbohydrate balance. These findings have been combined in a proposed model for the transcriptional regulation of bZIP63, AT5g22920, TPS9, MGD2 and BT2, which further proposes a function of those genes in the regulation of cell division.

The optimisation of a protocol for long-term real-time live-cell imaging provided a valuable tool to show that, similar to gene expression, the progression of cell division depended on a sugar-type-specific regulation at the single-cell level; this regulation was most likely caused by prolongation of the interphase. Together with the observation of cell death and growth arrest of the primary root in intact seedlings in response to the glucose analogue 2dog, this led to the conclusion that sugar signals themselves were sufficient to induce cell division. However, the continuation of cell cycle progression and consequently organ growth over long-time required the availability of the energy contained in the sugar.
