Bottom Line: Here, experiments were performed to account for the non-redundant biological function of OsCPS1 and OsCPS2.Quantitative reverse transcription-PCR (qRT-PCR) analysis showed that OsCPS2 transcript levels were drastically lower than those of OsCPS1 in the basal parts, including the meristem of the second-leaf sheaths of rice seedlings. qRT-PCR results using tissue samples prepared by laser microdissection suggested that OsCPS1 transcripts mainly localized in vascular bundle tissues, similar to Arabidopsis CPS, which is responsible for GA biosynthesis, whereas OsCPS2 transcripts mainly localized in epidermal cells that address environmental stressors such as pathogen attack.The results indicate that transcripts of the two ent-CDP synthase genes differentially localize in rice plants according to their distinct biological roles, OsCPS1 for growth and OsCPS2 for defence.

Expression patterns of OsCPS1 and OsCPS2 in second-leaf sheaths of the complemented line rice seedlings. The upper and basal parts of the second-leaf sheath (Fig. 3A) of T2 seedlings, obtained from the segregated wild-type T1 line (line 1, no. 8) and the complemented T1 line (line 1, no. 2) rice plants, were used for expression analyses by qRT–PCR. The concentration of each transcript was normalized to that of 18S rRNA, and adjusted to a value of 1 for OsCPS1 in the basal parts of the segregated wild-type line plants with SEs (n=3). ND, not detected.

Figure 7: Expression patterns of OsCPS1 and OsCPS2 in second-leaf sheaths of the complemented line rice seedlings. The upper and basal parts of the second-leaf sheath (Fig. 3A) of T2 seedlings, obtained from the segregated wild-type T1 line (line 1, no. 8) and the complemented T1 line (line 1, no. 2) rice plants, were used for expression analyses by qRT–PCR. The concentration of each transcript was normalized to that of 18S rRNA, and adjusted to a value of 1 for OsCPS1 in the basal parts of the segregated wild-type line plants with SEs (n=3). ND, not detected.

Mentions: The OsCPS1p fragment was accordingly fused to OsCPS2 ORF cDNA (Fig. 5) in the pZH2B vector and introduced into a heterozygous oscps1-1 mutant by Agrobacterium infection. oscps1-1 is a Tos17-inserted OsCPS1 mutant that displays a severe dwarf phenotype caused by GA deficiency (Sakamoto et al., 2004). Because the homozygous oscps1-1 mutant was incapable of dedifferentiation, a heterozygous mutant was transformed by Agrobacterium infection, and self-pollination of transgenic plants produced T1 seeds. Transgenic homozygous oscps1-1 (complemented line), non-transgenic homozygous oscps1-1 (knockout line), and non-transgenic wild-type (segregated wild-type line) plants were observed by genotyping the T1 seedlings (Fig. 6A). Four complemented line T1 plants were identified, and displayed almost the same height as that of the segregated wild-type lines (Fig. 6B). OsCPS1 and OsCPS2 expression patterns were analysed in the second-leaf sheath to check successful ectopic expression of OsCPS2. qRT–PCR showed that OsCPS2 transcripts accumulated in basal parts of the second-leaf sheath of T2 complemented line seedlings, similar to OsCPS1 transcripts in wild-type Nipponbare (Fig. 3B) and in segregated wild-type line seedlings, whereas wild-type OsCPS1 transcripts were not detected in complemented line plants (Fig. 7). These results indicate that OsCPS2 expression under the OsCPS1 promoter rescued the oscps1-1 mutant phenotype.
