  • Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research (C), Studies on the acidic wall proteins that activate the wall glucanases in maize coleoptiles., INOUHE Masahiro, Exo- and endoglucanases purified from the cell walls of maize coleoptiles mediate a specific degradation of cell wall β-(1,3)(1,4)-glucans. We now suggest that there is a possible role for apoplastic chitinase in the cell wall glucan-glucanase interaction resulting in an acceleration of these reactions. The acidic wall protein fraction which had been isolated from maize coleoptiles is capable of endochitinase activity. Moreover, this purified maize acidic chitinase strongly stimulates both exo- and endoglucanases in catalyzing the hydrolysis of β-(1,3)(1,4)-glucans. Selected chitinases from other sources exhibited similar behavior in β-glucan hydrolysis in the presence of glucanases. However, we found no evidence to suggest that chitinases alone were responsible of significant hydrolysis of β-glucans in the absence of glucanases. These results suggest that the wall chitinase(s) may cause small but significant changes in either the glucanase glycopeptide structure or that it might act to modify certain conformational elements of the glucan structure. In cereal plants, auxin stimulates cell elongation, a process that is closely tied to metabolic modification of cell wall glucans. The precise nature of the chitinase interaction with the cell wall structural changes mediated by glucanases and the relationship to auxin action will be the focus of future experiments.
  • Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research (C), Activation and induction of phvtochelatin synthase by heavy metal ions in tomato cells., INOUE Masahiro, Role of phytochelatin (PC) in heavy-metal tolerance in plants has been well investigated by many workers. Properties and functions of PC synthase howeverremained to be established. In the present study, we isolated several isoenzymes of PC synthase from Cd-adapted tomato cells and found specific effects of heavy metal ions on their enzymic activities. Their various kinetic parameters, productions and relationships to cell responses to metal ions were also characterized. Based upon these results, we concluded that heavy-metal tolerance of tomato cells is constitutively expressed by the metal ion-activated PC2 synthase, and more enhanced or stabilized by an adaptational synthesis of PC3 or PC4 synthase isozymes. This idea can be applied to the other plant systems to evaluate general roles of PC synthase in PC formation and heavy metal tolerance. Methodological upgrades will allow the further important findings for functional isozymes and genes related to the PC pathway and metal-tolerance in higher plants.
