Article
Extensins are cell wall glycoproteins, belonging to the Hydroxyproline-Rich GlycoProtein (HRGP) family, which are involved in many biological functions, including plant growth and defence. Several reviews have described the involvement of HRGPs in plant immunity but little focus has been given specifically to cell wall extensins. Yet, a large set o...
Article
Pea (Pisum sativum) root cap releases a large number of living border cells that secrete abundant mucilage into the extracellular medium. Mucilage contains a complex mixture of polysaccharides, proteins and secondary metabolites important for its structure and function in defense. Unlike xyloglucan and cellulose, pectin and arabinogalactan proteins...
Article
The root cap releases cells that produce massive amounts of mucilage containing polysaccharides, proteoglycans, extracellular DNA (exDNA) and a variety of antimicrobial compounds. The released cells-known as border cells or border-like cells-and mucilage secretions form networks that are defined as root extracellular traps (RETs). RETs are importan...

exDNA is found in various organisms, including plants. However, plant exDNA has thus far received little attention related to its origin and role in the RET (root extracellular trap). In this study, we performed the first high-throughput genomic sequencing of plant exDNA from a Fabaceae with worldwide interest: soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merr.). The...
Article
Investigation of protein tracking in living plant cells has became a routine experiment with the emergence of reporter genes encoding fluorescent tags. Unfortunately, this imaging strategy is not applicable to glycans because their synthesis is not directly encoded by the genome. Indeed, complex glycans result from sequential additions and/or remov...

Endogenous viruses form an important proportion of eukaryote genomes and a source of novel functions. How large DNA viruses integrated into a genome evolve when they confer a benefit to their host, however, remains unknown. Bracoviruses are essential for the parasitism success of parasitoid wasps, into whose genomes they integrated~103 million year...
Article
Ants use venom for predation, defense, and communication; however, the molecular diversity, function, and potential applications of ant venom remains understudied compared to other venomous lineages such as arachnids, snakes and cone snails. In this work, we used a multidisciplinary approach that encompassed field work, proteomics, sequencing, chem...

Article
Bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP) is a widely produced plasticizer that is considered to act as an endocrine-disrupting chemical in vertebrates and invertebrates. Indeed, many studies have shown that DEHP alters hormonal levels, reproduction and behavior in vertebrates. Few studies have focused on the effects of DEHP on insects, although DEHP is f...

Most endogenous viruses, an important proportion of eukaryote genomes, are doomed to slowly decay. Little is known, however, on how they evolve when they confer a benefit to their host. Bracoviruses are essential for the parasitism success of parasitoid wasps, whose genomes they integrated ~103 million years ago. Here we show, from the assembly of...

Main conclusion: Arabinogalactan protein content in both root extracellular trap and root exudates varies in three Sahelian woody plant species that are differentially tolerant to drought. At the root tip, mature root cap cells, mainly border cells (BCs)/border-like cells (BLCs) and their associated mucilage, form a web-like structure known as the...

Stress tolerance generally declines with age as a result of functional senescence. Age-dependent alteration of stress tolerance can also occur in early adult life. In Drosophila melanogaster, evidence of such a decline in young adults has only been reported for thermotolerance. It is not known whether early adult life entails a general stress toler...

The BIODERA project is aimed at eliminating nematodes, microscopic worms which include disease-carrying species and which are found in agricultural soil. Chemical solutions are currently available to eradicate these plant parasites, which cause a significant drop in annual yields of cultivated crops such as potatoes, beetroot and carrots. BIODERA involves identifying active ingredients in naturally sourced plant and marine molecules, which will biologically control several species of plant-parasitic nematodes. These biomolecules will be incorporated into soil amendments or fertilizers to forestall or prevent the development of plant-parasitic nematodes from the earliest growing stages of the crop requiring protection (before sowing and as plantation established). The BIODERA project offers the possibility of developing a new technology based on plant and marine molecules to help agriculture tackle the major challenges of tomorrow. The BIODERA project is recognised jointly by the Pôle Mer Bretagne Atlantique and the Pôle Mer IAR.
