Progresses and Applications of Fluorescence in Situ Hybridization
Author: WANG Ling, NING Shun-Bin, SONG Yun-Chun, L Ying-Tang
Journal of Integrative Plant Biology 2000 42(11): 1101-1107

The techniques of in situ hybridization (ISH) are widely adopted for analyzing the genetic make-up and RNA expression patterns of individual cells. There are four main criterions for evaluating this technique, including detection sensitivity, resolution, capacity and specificity. This review focuses on a number of advances made over the last years in the fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH). These advances can be catagorized into several branches as follows: (1) Multicolor-FISH (mFISH), including conventional mFISH, combinatorial FISH, ratio labelling FISH, multicolor chromosome painting and comparative genomic hybridization (CGH); (2) Extended DNA fiber-FISH (EDF-FISH), including quantitative DNA fiber mapping (QDFM), molecular combing (MC) and dynamic molecular combing (DMC); (3)In situ PCR-based FISH; (4) Bacterial (or yeast) artificial chromosome-FISH (BAC-FISH or YAC-FISH); (5) Tyramide signal amplification-FISH (TSA-FISH); (6) Polypeptide nucleic acid-FISH (PNA-FISH) and (7) padlock-FISH.

Sex Expression and the Evolutionary Advantages of Male Flowers in an Andromonoecious Species, Sagittaria guyanensis subsp. lappula (Alismataceae)
Author: HUANG Shuang-Quan, SONG Ni, WANG Quan, TANG Lu-Lu, WANG Xiao-Fan
Journal of Integrative Plant Biology 2000 42(11)

Sex expression in Sagittaria guyanensis H.B.K. subsp. lappula (D. Don) Bojin is typically andromonoecious while the other species in the same genus are basically monoecious. The evolutionary advantages of male flowers and hermaphrodite flowers in S. guyanensis subsp. lappula were assessed by measuring sex allocation and pollen movements in two wild populations of the species. Two cultivated populations served as controls. The percentage of male flowers was very low in the two wild populations in Dongxiang, Jiangxi Province and Wuyishan, Fujian Province, viz., 2.48% and 0.96% respectively. In the two cultivated populations, male flower percentage significantly increased when the soil was of higher nutrient content. This indicates that the allocation to male versus female reproduction might change in response to environmental factors. Pollen production per male flower was 4.1 times higher than that of a hermaphrodite flower. The floral shape and size of male and hermaphrodite flowers were similar. No difference was observed between these dimorphological flowers in pollen germination rate in vitro and in the speed of pollen tube growth in vivo. Anthesis was only 4-5 h. Male flowers usually opened 0.5 h earlier than hermaphrodite flowers. An unexpected finding was that no pollen from the male flowers was found on the stigmas of the hermaphrodite flowers, in spite of the occasional visits by insects to both types of flowers in both wild and control populations. A consistent pattern of fruit development was found to exist in open pollinated flowers as well as in flowers that had been bagged. The sex ratios did not have significant influence on fruit set. Approximately 25% of the pistils in a gynoecium failed to develop into fruits because no pollen was deposited on them, indicating that the fruit set of this andromonoecious plant is mainly affected by pollen limitation rather than resource limitation. Reproduction in S. guyanensis subsp. lappula in the habitats was dependent on self-pollination in hermaphrodite flowers. The male flowers in this species might be a potential source of additional pollination and may facilitate cross-pollination. The fact that the flowers of monoecious species in Sagittaria pollinated by a wide diversity of insect visitors may contribute enormously to the diversification of sex expression in this genus.

Author: WANG Dong-Mei, WANG Xue-Chen, ZHANG Wei-Cheng
Journal of Integrative Plant Biology 2000 42(11): 1167-1171

The interphase nuclei of parenchyma cells and epidermal cells of garlic (Allium sativum L.) clove were labelled with rabbit anti-actin antibody and FITC-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG antibody. The authors observed results with fluorescence microscopy and confocal laser scanning microscopy. The nuclei showed prominent green-yellow fluorescence, indicating the presence of actin in the nuclei. Fluorescence examination with TRITC-phalloidin showed distinctive red fluorescence in the nuclei, indicating that F-actin is present in the nuclei. Confocal laser scanning microscopy indicated the presence of F-actin containing network structures in the nuclei, but the network structures were absent and the nuclei still showed red fluorescence when the cells were treated with cytochalasin D before fixation; the red fluorescence in the nuclei was hard to be observed when the cells were treated with unlabelled phalloidin before the cells were stained with TRITC-phalloidin. These results indicate that F-actin is in the nuclei and forms network structures in the nuclei of garlic cells.

Segmental Duplications Are Common in Rice Genome
Author: WANG Shi-Ping, LIU Ke-De, ZHANG Qi-Fa
Journal of Integrative Plant Biology 2000 42(11): 1150-1155

Segmental duplications on rice (Oryza sativa L.) chromosomes 8, 9, 11, and 12 were studied by examining the distributions of sequences resolved by 13 probes detecting multiple copies of DNA sequences. Four of the hybridization bands detected by a repetitive sequence probe, rTRS, were mapped to the ends of all the four chromosomes. Two or three of the bands detected by each of the other 12 probes were also mapped to different chromosomes. The bands detected by the same probe usually occurred in similar locations of different chromosomes. Loci detected by different DNA probes were often similarly arranged on different chromosomes. Chromosomes 8 and 9 showed colinearity of marker loci arrangement indicating a possible common origin. A segment on chromosome 9 was also very similar to the previously reported duplicated fragments on the ends of chromosomes 11 and 12 which were also detected in this study, indicating a likely common origin. Moreover, the various degrees of distributional similarity of the segments suggest a complex relationship among the chromosomes in the evolution of the rice genome. These results support the proposition that chromosome duplication and diversification may be a mechanism for the origin and evolution of the chromosomes in the rice genome.

Journal of Integrative Plant Biology 2000 42(11)
    Cytochemical and ultrastructural studies indicated that compound spherical bodies observed near the sieve plate in the sieve tube members during the period of cambial dormancy in the shoots of Eucommia ulmoides Oliv. were polysaccharide bodies different from the polysaccharide grains in other parenchyma cells in shoots, and were similar to cell walls in their staining properties. The compound spherical bodies occurred in the sieve elements during the period of cambial rest and disappeared in the sieve elements during the period of cambial quiescence and activity.

Relationship Between the Growth of Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 on Medium with Glucose and the Photosynthetic Energy Transformation
Author: WANG Yong-Hong, YE Ji-Yu, MI Hua-Ling, LI Yuan-Guang, ZHANG Si-Liang
Journal of Integrative Plant Biology 2000 42(11): 1122-1125

Measurements of chlorophyll fluorescence kinetics from dark-starved cells, light-grown cells and mixotrophic cells of Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 were obtained using a pulse amplitude modulation (PAM) fluorometer. Photosystem Ⅱ photochemical efficiency Ⅱand the extent of reduction of Q-A in the three kinds of cells described above were compared. The millisecond delayed light emission (MDLE) of light-grown cells and mixotrophic cells were also detected. On the basis of the analysis of fluorescence kinetic parameters, comparison of the slow phase of MDLE and the influence of inhibitors of photosynthetic electron transport3-(3,4-dichlorophenyl)-1,1-dimethylurea(DCMU), 2,5-dibromo-3-methyl-6-isopropyl-p-benzoquinone (DBMIB) on the mixotrophic growth of Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803, it was concluded that the reasons for higher growth rate under mixotrophic than that under photoautotrophic might be that glucose promoted the photoautotrophic growth of mixotrephic cells and the donation of eletrons to the plastoquinone pool from the respiratory substance and the transform of energy was promoted by photosynthetic system, which provided the energy needed by anabolism of cells caused by the glucose added to the medium. 

R5002-12, a salt tolerant line of Phragmites communis Trin., which was obtained from ethyl methane sulfonate (EMS) treated callus selected under saline stress, was compared with its wild line in respect to their molecular biological, physiological and biochemical characterizations. Five arbitrary primers were screened which showed differences in DNA amplified polymorphism between the variant and its wild line. Some new proteins appeared in the salt tolerant plant under salt stress. Electrophoresis of peroxidase and esterase also showed some differences in isozyme expression between them. The chlorophyll content of the variant was higher than that of the original variety, whether the plants were under salt stress or not.

Characterization of Protein Kinases in Apple and Grape During Fruit Development
Author: LIANG Xiao-E, ZHANG Da-Peng, JIA Wen-Suo
Journal of Integrative Plant Biology 2000 42(11): 1131-1136

The protein kinases were identified at different developmental stages of apple (Malus domestica L. Borth. cv. Red Starking) and grape (Vitis vinifera L. × V.lubrusca L. cv. Kyoho) fruit, and these protein kinases were found to be greatly activated by Ca2+. This demonstrated that calcium-dependent protein kinase plays an important role in apple and grape fruits. The results also showed that calmodulin (CaM) had no stimulation effect, but the CaM antagonists, such as calmidazolium, W7 and trifluoroacetic acid (TFA), had some inhibitory effects on the activities of this kind of protein kinase in both fruits, indicating that the detected protein kinases may be a kind of calmodulin-like domain protein kinase or calcium-dependent protein kinase (CDPK). There were distinct differences between apple and grape fruits, both in the characteristics and in the activity evolution patterns of the protein kinases during fruit development. The activity of calcium-dependent protein kinase was little changed in the three stages of apple fruit development, while in grape fruit the activity of this protein kinase was much higher in stage Ⅱ than those in stage Ⅰ and stage Ⅲ. The calcium-dependent protein kinase in apple fruits was strongly activated by Mn2+, and it was sensitive to heat treatment, but in grape fruits it was neither stimulated by Mn2+ nor sensitive to high temperature. Besides, phosphatidyl-serine (PS) had little effect on the activities of calcium-dependent protein kinase in grape fruits, but had stimulative effects in apple fruits. It was thus proposed that there might be a kind of calcium- and phosphatide-activated protein kinase, i.e., PKC, in apple fruits. The differences among the kinds, characteristics and the activity evolution patterns of protein kinases during apple and grape fruit development, suggest that the protein kinases may be involved in the process of fruit development.

Author: FAN Qing, TIAN Shi-Ping, XU Yong, WANG Yi, JIANG Ai-Li
Journal of Integrative Plant Biology 2000 42(11): 1137-1143

The biocontrol capability of Candida guilliermondii (Cast) Langeroret Guerra against Rhizopus stolonifer (Ehrenb.ex Fr.) Vuill. postharvest rot of peach fruits was studied in vitro and in vivo under different storage temperatures. C. guilliermondii at 5.0×108 CFU (colony-forming unit)/mL of washed cells provided complete control of 5×104 spores /mL of R. stolonifer during storage at 25 ℃ for 4 d, 15 ℃ for 7 d and 3℃ for 30 d. Temperature had no significant effect on the biocontrol efficacy. Antagonist population increased 45.6, 34.4 and 33.1 times per site at 25℃, 15℃ and 3℃ for 3, 3 and 7 d,respectively, then the population stabilized for the remaining storage period. Cell-free culture filtrate of C. guilliermondii was not effective in preventing decay and resulted in even greater lesion diameter than those of sterile distilled water at 3 ℃.These results showed that competition for nutrient, not antibiotic production, plays a major role in the biocontrol capability of C. guilliermondii against rhizopus rot of peach fruits. As the interval between wounding and inoculation with the pathogen increased from 0 to 72 h, susceptibility of wounds to decay by R. stolonifer decreased from 100% of 0 h to 5% of 4 h and 0% of 24 h, then increased to 10% of 48 h and 40% of 72 h.

RFLP Detection of Genetic Variation of Maize Inbred Lines
Author: LI Xin-Hai, FU Jun-Hua, ZHANG Shi-Huang, YUAN Li-Xing, LI Ming-Shun
Journal of Integrative Plant Biology 2000 42(11): 1156-1161

Genetic similarities of 13 inbred lines of maize (Zea mays L.) were analyzed by restriction fragment length polymorphisms (RFLPs). The objectives of the study were to detect genetic similarities among 13 inbreds and to assign them to heterotic groups. By means of 24 probe-enzyme combinations (PECs) selected for locus specificity, clear patterns and reproducibility, 85 alleles were found with an average of 3.3 alleles per locus. The allelic frequency data were used to estimate genetic similarities among lines, and as a result the diversity index of 0.499 was obtained. Genetic similarities between the pairs of 13 lines ranged from 0.523 up to 0.802 with an average of 0.649. The UPGMA clustering algorithm analysis classified the 13 lines into five groups, which generally corresponded to known maize heterotic groups based on pedigree information. The authors concluded that RFLP-based markers could be used for investigating genetic relationships between maize inbred lines and assigning them to heterotic groups, but it seemed that a large number of PECs were needed to obtain reliable estimates of genetic similarity.

Pollen-based Biome Reconstruction at Middle Holocene (6 ka BP) and Last Glacial Maximum (18 ka BP) in China Members of China Quaternary Pollen Data Base
Author: XUN Xiang-Jun
Journal of Integrative Plant Biology 2000 42(11): 1201-1209

Biome (vegetation) reconstruction of the Middle Holocene ((6 000±500) a BP) and the Last Glacial Maximum ((18 000±2 000) a BP) in China was accomplished based on pollen data from “China Quternary Pollen data Base" and biomesation procedure. There are 116 pollen data used for 6 ka BP biome reconstruction. The 6 ka BP Biome shows the following differences as compared with the present vegetation: 1. Forests of eastern China expanded westwards to the steppe area. 2. Temperate deciduous forests shifted about 4 degrees latitudinally northwards and replaced by cool temperate mixed forest and taiga at present. 3. Tundra in Tibet Plateau was greatly shrunken. 4. Seasonal rainforest was replaced by rainforest in southern China. All these changes must be attributed to the increasing temperature and humidity during Middle Holocene, except some areas of southwestern and tropical areas of southern China where climate might be even cooler, but more humid than nowadays. Biome of 18 ka BP based on 39 pollen data displayed: 1. Steppe and desert expanded southwards and eastwards reaching the northern margin of the present evergreen broad-leaved forest. 2. Evergreen broad-leaved forest retracted southwards to the present tropical zone and the tropical forest banished completly. The vegetation changes must be resulted from cold and dry climate during the Last Glacial Maximum.

A Study on the Classification of the Plant Functional Types Based on the Topographical Pattern of Plant Distribution
Author: SHEN Ze-Hao, ZHANG Xin-Shi
Journal of Integrative Plant Biology 2000 42(11): 1190-1196

An idea of plant functional types (PFTs) classification is brought forward based on the topographical pattern of plants, and a case study at Daloling region, lying in the northern part of Chinese subtropical zone, is presented. By means of extensive field study of the mountain forests, the quantitative attributes of the major 55 evergreen broadleaved tree species in the communities located at various topographical positions were acquired. The detrended canerical corre spondence analysis (DCCA) method was used to analyze: 1) The correlationships among the habitat temperature, moisture and illumination conditions and the 6 topographical attributes as elevation, mountain aspect, slope shape, slope position, slope direction and slope gradient of the habitat. 2) The diverse patterns of 55 species on the multidimensional topographical gradients. The scores of ordination were then used for a two way indicator species analysis (TWINSPAN) to the species. According to the results of previous analyses, the 55 evergreen broadleaved tree species at Dalaoling were classified into 10 PFTs. A discussion about the validity and limits of this PFTs accessing approach were given in the end. 

Author: SONG Bao-Hua, CHEN Zhi-Duan, WANG Xiao-Quan, LI Fa-Zeng
Journal of Integrative Plant Biology 2000 42(11): 1184-1189

The sequences of the ITS region (including ITS-1, 5.8S rDNA and ITS-2) of nuclear ribosomal DNA from 15 species of the genus Amaranthus L. and outgroup Celosia cristata L. were determined. The result shows that the size of the ITS region of Amaranthus is from 629 to 632 bp, and the length variation is only found in ITS-1 (250-253 bp). On the basis of phylogenetic analysis of nucleotide sequences, the Amaranthus species in China may be devided into three sections, viz., sect. Spinosus, sect. Amaranthus and sect. Paucestamen; the cultivated species, viz., Amaranthus paniculatus L., A. cruentus L., A. caudatus L. and A. hypochondriacus L. can be treated as the subsp. of A. hybridus L.; A. taishanensis F.Z.Li and A. tenuifolius Willd are both closely related to species in the sect. Paucestamen. The study also indicated that the number of stamens has more phylogenetic information than other characters, such as the number of sepals and dehiscence/indehiscence of fruits in Amaranthus.

Isolation and Characterization of Microsatellites in Snap Bean
Author: GUO Jian-Chun, HU Xin-Wen, YANAGIHARA Seiji, YOSHINOBU Egawa
Journal of Integrative Plant Biology 2000 42(11)
    The objectives of this study were to isolate and characterize microsatellites from a heat tolerant variety of snap bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) in order to generate polymorphic genetic markers linked to quantitative trait loci for heat tolerance. A genomic library contained 400-800 bp inserts was constructed and screened for the presence of (GA/CT)n and (CA/GT)n repeats. The proportion of positive clones yielded estimated of 3.72×10 4 such dinucleotide repeats per genome, roughly comparable to the abundance reported in other eukaryotic genomes. Twenty-six positive clones were sequenced. In contrast to mammalian genomes, the (GA/CT)n motif was much more abundant than the (CA/GT)n motif in these clones. The (GA/CT)n repeats also showed longer average repeat length (mean n=10.4 versus 6.5), suggesting that they are better candidates for yielding polymorphic genetic markers in the snap bean genome.

High Efficiency of Genetic Transformation of Rice Using Agrobacterium Mediated Procedure
Author: HUANG Jian-Qiu,WEI Zhi-Ming,AN Hai-Long,XU Shu-Ping,ZHANG Bing
Journal of Integrative Plant Biology 2000 42(11): 1172-1178

Four japonica varieties and two indica varieties were used for the genetic transformation of rice (Oryza sativa L.) by using Agrobacterium tumefaciens (Smith et Townsend) Conn EHA101 harboring binary vector containing GUS gene and selectable marker gene of NPTⅡ and HPT. Calli derived from mature and immature embryos of rice were infected and cocultured with Agrobacterium at logarithmic phase. The highest transformation frequency was 55.1% (indica) and 85.2% (japonica) respectively according to the estimation of hygromycin resistant calli produced. The ratio of transgenic plants regenerated from the calli of indica and japonica varieties was 37.8% and 69.0% respectively. The putative transformed plants were confirmed by GUS assay, PCR analysis and Southern blotting. The segregation of foreign genes in T1 progeny corresponded to the Mendelian ratio. This transformation procedure of rice will provide an efficient model for the transformation of monocots.

Journal of Integrative Plant Biology 2000 42(11)
    Explants of cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L. cv. Jingmian 7) were transformed with Agrobacterium tumefaciens (Smith et Townsend ) Conn LBA4404 harboring an expression cassette composed of CoYMV (Commelina Yellow Mottle Virus) promoter-gus-nos terminator on the plant expression vector pBcopd2. Transgenic plants were regenerated and selected on a medium containing kanamycin. GUS (β-glucuronidase) activity assays and Southern blot analysis confirmed that the chimerical gus gene was integrated into and expressed in the regenerated cotton plants. Plant expression vector pBI121 was also transferred into the same cotton variety and the regenerated transgenic plants were used as a positive control in GUS activity analysis. Evidences from histochemical analysis of GUS activity demonstrated that under the control of a 597 bp CoYMV promoter the gus gene was highly expressed in the vascular tissues of leaves, petioles, stems, roots, hypocotyls, bracteal leaves and most of the flower parts while GUS activity could not be detected in stigma, anther sac and developing cotton fibers of the transgenic cotton plants. GUS specific activity in various organs and tissues from transgenic cotton lines was determined and the results indicated that the CoYMV promoter-gus activities were at the same level or higher than that of CaMV 35S promoter-gus in leaf veins and roots where the vascular tissues occupy a relatively larger part of the organs, but in other organs like leaves, cotyledons and hypocotyls where the vascular tissues occupy a smaller part of the organs the CoYMV promoter-gus activity was only 1/3-1/5 of the CaMV 35S promoter-gus activity. The GUS activity ratio between veins and leaves was averaged 0.5 for 35S-GUS plants and about 2.0 for CoYMV promoter-gus transgenic plants. These results further demonstrated the vascular specific property of the promoter in transgenic cotton plants. An increasing trend of GUS activity in leaf vascular tissues of transgenic cotton plants developing from young to older was observed.

Regeneration and Characterization of Plants Derived from Asymmetric Protoplast Fusion in Citrus
Author: LIU Ji-Hong, DENG Xiu-Xin
Journal of Integrative Plant Biology 2000 42(11)
    RFLP (restriction fragment length polymorphism) was employed to analyze cytoplasmic genome of diploid somatic hybrid plant, morphologically similar to rough lemon which was leaf parent, that was produced via protoplast fusion between rough lemon (Citrus jambhiri Lush) and Hamlin sweet orange (C. sinensis Osb.), the embryogenic parent. Three enzyme-mitocondrial probe combinations and one enzyme-chloroplast probe combination demonstrated that the plant had identical band profiles to Hamlin sweet orange as far as mtDNA and cpDNA were concerned.
