摘 要:

从Zn胁迫下小麦幼苗的抑制差减杂交(SSH) cDNA文库中筛选出S-腺苷甲硫氨酸(SAM)代谢途径中的9个关键基因,并采用实时荧光定量PCR对其表达模式进行分析。结果表明, Zn (1 mmol·L-1)胁迫下小麦的S-腺苷甲硫氨酸合成酶基因(SAMS)表达呈下降趋势, 而参与谷胱甘肽(GSH)和烟酰胺(NA)合成代谢的关键基因均上调表达; 不同浓度Zn处理4 h后, 小麦SAM代谢途径中基因的快速响应存在差异。可见, Zn胁迫下, 小麦SAM代谢途径中GSH和NA的合成代谢增强, GSH和NA可能参与小麦对Zn胁迫的响应及降低Zn毒害的作用。

A suppression subtractive hybridization (SSH) cDNA library of wheat (Triticum aestivum) seedlings under different concentrations of Zn for different treatment time was established and several genes involved in the metabolic pathway of S-adenosylmethionine (SAM) were selected. To clarify the relationship between SAM metabolic pathway and response of wheat to Zn stress, the expression levels of nine genes participated in SAM metabolic pathway were analysed by real-time quantitative PCR. The results showed that SAMS was down-regulated in both shoots and roots of wheat after exposed to Zn (1 mmol·L-1) stress; while SAHase, γ-ECS, GST, NAS3 and NAAT were up-regulated under identical treatment. Expression patterns of SAM metabolism genes in wheat under low Zn concentration (0.5 mmol·L-1) were different from those under high Zn concentration (5 mmol·L-1). These results suggest that synthesis of glutathione (GSH) and nicotianamine (NA) in SAM metabolic pathway in wheat are enhanced under Zn stress. Thus, GSH and NA may play significant roles in the response of wheat to Zn stress and reduce Zn toxicity.
