Abstract : We report the annotation and analysis of the draft genome sequence of Brassica rapa accession Chiifu-401-42, a Chinese cabbage. We modeled 41,174 protein coding genes in the B. rapa genome, which has undergone genome triplication. We used Arabidopsis thaliana as an outgroup for investigating the consequences of genome triplication, such as structural and functional evolution. The extent of gene loss (fractionation) among triplicated genome segments varies, with one of the three copies consistently retaining a disproportionately large fraction of the genes expected to have been present in its ancestor. Variation in the number of members of gene families present in the genome may contribute to the remarkable morphological plasticity of Brassica species. The B. rapa genome sequence provides an important resource for studying the evolution of polyploid genomes and underpins the genetic improvement of Brassica oil and vegetable crops.

Title : GDSL lipase-like 1 regulates systemic resistance associated with ethylene signaling in Arabidopsis - Kwon_2009_Plant.J_58_235

Abstract : Systemic resistance is induced by necrotizing pathogenic microbes and non-pathogenic rhizobacteria and confers protection against a broad range of pathogens. Here we show that Arabidopsis GDSL LIPASE-LIKE 1 (GLIP1) plays an important role in plant immunity, eliciting both local and systemic resistance in plants. GLIP1 functions independently of salicylic acid but requires ethylene signaling. Enhancement of GLIP1 expression in plants increases resistance to pathogens including Alternaria brassicicola, Erwinia carotovora and Pseudomonas syringae, and limits their growth at the infection site. Furthermore, local treatment with GLIP1 proteins is sufficient for the activation of systemic resistance, inducing both resistance gene expression and pathogen resistance in systemic leaves. The PDF1.2-inducing activity accumulates in petiole exudates in a GLIP1-dependent manner and is fractionated in the size range of less than 10 kDa as determined by size exclusion chromatography. Our results demonstrate that GLIP1-elicited systemic resistance is dependent on ethylene signaling and provide evidence that GLIP1 may mediate the production of a systemic signaling molecule(s).

Title : Arabidopsis GDSL lipase 2 plays a role in pathogen defense via negative regulation of auxin signaling - Lee_2009_Biochem.Biophys.Res.Commun_379_1038

Abstract : GLIP1 was isolated previously from Arabidopsis, as a salicylic acid-responsive secreted GDSL lipase that functions in resistance to Alternaria brassicicola [I.S. Oh, A.R. Park, M.S. Bae, S.J. Kwon, Y.S. Kim, J.E. Lee, N.Y. Kang, S. Lee, H. Cheong, O.K. Park, Secretome analysis reveals an Arabidopsis lipase involved in defense against Alternaria brassicicola. Plant Cell 17 (2005) 2832-2847.]. To extend our knowledge of the roles played by GLIPs in Arabidopsis, we conducted functional studies of another family member, GLIP2. GLIP2 transcripts were expressed in young seedlings, as well as in the root and stem tissues of mature plants. GLIP2 transcript levels were elevated by treatment with salicylic acid, jasmonic acid and ethylene. Recombinant GLIP2 proteins possessed lipase and anti-microbial activities, inhibiting germination of fungal spores. In comparison to wild type plants, T-DNA insertion glip2 mutants exhibited enhanced auxin responses, including increased lateral root formation and elevated AUX/IAA gene expression. When challenged with the necrotropic bacteria Erwinia carotovora, glip2 mutants exhibited more susceptible phenotypes than wild type plants. These results suggest that GLIP2 plays a role in resistance to Erwinia carotovora via negative regulation of auxin signaling.

Title : Display of a thermostable lipase on the surface of a solvent-resistant bacterium, Pseudomonas putida GM730, and its applications in whole-cell biocatalysis - Jung_2006_BMC.Biotechnol_6_23

Abstract : BACKGROUND: Whole-cell biocatalysis in organic solvents has been widely applied to industrial bioprocesses. In two-phase water-solvent processes, substrate conversion yields and volumetric productivities can be limited by the toxicity of solvents to host cells and by the low mass transfer rates of the substrates from the solvent phase to the whole-cell biocatalysts in water.
RESULTS: To solve the problem of solvent toxicity, we immobilized a thermostable lipase (TliA) from Pseudomonas fluorescens on the cell surface of a solvent-resistant bacterium, Pseudomonas putida GM730. Surface immobilization of enzymes eliminates the mass-transfer limitation imposed by the cell wall and membranes. TliA was successfully immobilized on the surface of P. putida cells using the ice-nucleation protein (INP) anchoring motif from Pseudomonas syrinage. The surface location was confirmed by flow cytometry, protease accessibility and whole-cell enzyme activity using a membrane-impermeable substrate. Three hundred and fifty units of whole-cell hydrolytic activity per gram dry cell mass were obtained when the enzyme was immobilized with a shorter INP anchoring motif (INPNC). The surface-immobilized TliA retained full enzyme activity in a two-phase water-isooctane reaction system after incubation at 37 degrees C for 12 h, while the activity of the free form enzyme decreased to 65% of its initial value. Whole cells presenting immobilized TliA were shown to catalyze three representative lipase reactions: hydrolysis of olive oil, synthesis of triacylglycerol and chiral resolution. CONCLUSION: In vivo surface immobilization of enzymes on solvent-resistant bacteria was demonstrated, and appears to be useful for a variety of whole-cell bioconversions in the presence of organic solvents.
