大白菜 Ogura-、 Polima-CMS 及其共同保持系 DEGs 的比较转录组分析
- Physiology and Molecular Biology of Plants
- Cytoplasmic male sterility (CMS) is maternally inherited trait, which hinders the ability to produce viable pollen in plants. It serves as a useful tool for hybrid seed production via exploiting heterosis in crops. The molecular mechanism of CMS and fertility restoration has been investigated in different crops. However, limited number of reports is available on comparison of Ogura- and Polima-CMS with their shared maintainer in Chinese cabbage. We performed transcript profiling of sterile Ogura CMS (Tyms), Polima CMS (22m2) and their shared maintainer line (231–330) with an aim to identify genes associated with male sterility. In this work, we identified 912, 7199 and 6381 DEGs (Differentially Expressed Genes) in 22m2 Vs Tyms, 231–330 VS 22m2 and 231–330 Vs Tyms, respectively. The GO (Gene Ontology) annotation and KEGG pathway analysis suggested that most of the DEGs were involved in pollen development, carbon metabolism, lipase activity, lipid binding, penta-tricopeptide repeat (PPR), citrate cycle and oxidative phosphorylation, which were down-regulated in both CMS lines. This result will provide an important resource for further understanding of functional pollen development, the CMS mechanism and to improve molecular breeding in Chinese cabbage.
