ABSTRACT To gain a better understanding of the mechanism of rice (Oryza sativa L.) in response to salt stress, we performed a proteomics analysis of rice in response to 250mM NaCl treatment using shoots
of 3-day-old nascent seedlings. The changes of protein patterns were monitored with two-dimensional gel electrophoresis. Of
57 protein spots showing changes in abundance in response to salt stress, 52 were identified by matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization
time-of-flight mass spectrometry. The identified proteins were classified into eight functional categories. Several novel
salt stress-responsive proteins, including protein synthesis inhibitor I, photosystem II stability/assembly factor HCF136,
trigger factor-like protein and cycloartenol-C24-methyltransferase are upregulated upon salt stress. In order to figure out
the different and similar molecular mechanism among salt and other stresses, regulation of some salt responsive proteins under
other abiotic stress (cold and dehydration) and abscisic acid application was also analyzed. The possible molecular mechanism
of rice seedlings in response to salinity and other stresses were discussed.

    ABSTRACT: Salinity is one of the major abiotic stress conditions limiting crop growth and productivity. Duilio is a wheat genotype that shows tolerant behavior in both salt-stress and drought-stress conditions. Toward better understanding of the biochemical response to salinity in this genotype of durum wheat, a comparative label-free shotgun proteomic analysis based on normalized spectral abundance factors was conducted on wheat leaf samples subjected to increasing salt-stress levels (100 and 200 mmol L(-1) NaCl) with respect to untreated samples. We found significant changes in 71 proteins for the first stress level, in 83 proteins at the higher salinity level, and in 88 proteins when comparing salt-stress levels with each other. The major changes concerned the proteins involved in primary metabolism and production of energy, followed by those involved in protein metabolism and cellular defense mechanisms. Some indications of different specific physiological and defense mechanisms implicated in increasing tolerance were obtained. The enhanced salinity tolerance in Duilio appeared to be governed by a higher capacity for osmotic homeostasis, a more efficient defense, and an improvement of protection from mechanical stress by increased cell wall lignifications, allowing a better potential for growth recovery.

    ABSTRACT: Rice proteomics has progressed with tremendous pace since the year 2000, and that has resulted in establishing and understanding the proteomes of tissues, organs, and organelles under both normal and abnormal (adverse) environmental conditions. Established proteomes have also helped in re-annotating the rice genome and revealing the new role of previously known proteins. The progress of rice proteomics had recognized it as the corner/stepping stone for at least cereal crops. Rice proteomics remains a model system for crops as per its exemplary proteomics research. Proteomics-based discoveries in rice are likely to be translated in improving crop plants and vice versa against ever-changing environmental factors. This review comprehensively covers rice proteomics studies during August 2010 to July 2013, with major focus on rice responses to diverse abiotic (drought, salt, oxidative, temperature, nutrient, hormone, metal ions, UV radiation, and ozone) as well as various biotic stresses, especially rice-pathogen interactions. The differentially regulated proteins in response to various abiotic stresses in different tissues have also been summarized, indicating key metabolic and regulatory pathways. We envision a big role of rice proteomics in addressing global ground level problem termed food security, to meet demand of human population, projected to reach 6-9 billion by 2040.

    ABSTRACT: Plant breeders need new and more precise tools to accelerate breeding programs that address the increasing needs for food, feed, energy and raw materials, while facing a changing environment in which high salinity and drought have major impacts on crop losses worldwide. This review covers the achievements and bottlenecks in the identification and validation of proteins with relevance in abiotic stress tolerance, also mentioning the unexpected consequences of the stress in allergen expression. While addressing the key pathways regulating abiotic stress plant adaptation, comprehensive data is presented on the proteins confirmed as relevant to confer tolerance. Promising candidates still to be confirmed are also highlighted, as well as the specific protein families and protein modifications for which detection and characterization is still a challenge. This article is part of a Special Issue entitled: Translational Plant Proteomics SI: Translational Plant Proteomics.
