Abstract

Plant defence responses to adverse environmental conditions include different stress signalling, allowing plant acclimation and survival. Among these responses one of the most common, immediate, and effective is the modulation of the stomatal aperture, which integrates different transduction pathways involving hydrogen peroxide (H2 O2), calcium (Ca2+), nitric oxide (NO), phytohormones and other signalling components. The Arabidopsis thaliana copper amine oxidases β (AtCuAOβ) encodes an apoplastic CuAO expressed in guard cells and root protoxylem tissues which oxidizes polyamines to aminoaldehydes with the production of H2 O2 and ammonia. Here, its role in stomatal closure, signalled by the wound-associated phytohormone methyl-jasmonate (MeJA) was explored by pharmacological and genetic approaches. Obtained data show that AtCuAOβ tissue-specific expression is induced by MeJA, especially in stomata guard cells. Interestingly, two Atcuaoβ T-DNA insertional mutants are unresponsive to this hormone, showing a compromised MeJA-mediated stomatal closure compared to the wild-type (WT) plants. Coherently, Atcuaoβ mutants also show compromised H2 O2-production in guard cells upon MeJA treatment. Furthermore, the H2 O2 scavenger N,N1-dimethylthiourea (DMTU) and the CuAO-specific inhibitor 2-bromoethylamine (2-BrEtA) both reversed the MeJA-induced stomatal closure and the H2 O2 production in WT plants. Our data suggest that AtCuAOβ is involved in the H2 O2 production implicated in MeJA-induced stomatal closure.
