Article
Full-text available
Boron (B) toxicity is a major agricultural problem that causes a considerable decrease in crop yield and quality. The soil in arid and semi-arid areas is often subjected to excessive B content. Southwestern Perú (department of Tacna) is characterized by high B levels in its agricultural land and irrigation water. This work analyzes the response of...

Full-text available
Boron (B) is a micronutrient for plant development, and its deficiency alters many physiological processes. However, the current knowledge on how plants are able to sense the B-starvation signal is still very limited. Recently, it has been reported that B deprivation induces an increase in cytosolic calcium concentration ([Ca2+]cyt) in Arabidopsis...
Article
Full-text available
Low boron (B) supply alters the architecture of the root system in Arabidopsis thaliana seedlings, leading to a reduction in the primary root growth and an increase in the length and number of root hairs. At short-term (hours), B deficiency causes a decrease in the cell elongation of the primary root, resulting in a lower growth. Experimental appro...
Article
Full-text available
One of the earliest symptoms of boron (B) deficiency is the inhibition of root elongation which can reasonably be attributed to the damaging effects of B deprivation on cell wall integrity. It is shown here that exposure of wild-type Arabidopsis thaliana seedlings to B deficiency for 4h led to a drastic inhibition of root cell length in the transit...
Article
Full-text available
Boron (B) plays a well-known structural role in the cell wall, however the way of perceiving B deficiency by roots and transmitting this environmental signal to the nucleus to elicit a response is not well established. It is known that the direct interaction between Ca ( 2+) sensors and transcription factors (TFs) is a necessary step to regulate th...
Article
Boron (B) deficiency affects the expressions of genes involved in major physiological processes. However, signal transduction pathway through which plants are able to sense and transmit B-deprivation signal to the nucleus is unknown. The aim of this work was to research in Arabidopsis thaliana roots whether the short-term B deficiency affects cytos...
Article
Plants sense and transmit nutrient-deprivation signals to the nucleus. This increasingly interesting research field advances knowledge of signal transduction pathways for mineral deficiencies. The understanding of this topic for most micronutrients, especially boron (B), is more limited. Several hypotheses have been proposed to explain how a B depr...
Article
Boron (B) is an essential element for plant growth whose deficiency causes an alteration in the expression of a wide range of genes involved in several physiological processes. However, our understanding of the signal transduction pathways that trigger the B-deficiency responses in plants is still poor. The aims of this review are (i) to summarize...
Article
Recently it has been reported that boron (B) deficiency increases the expression of Nicotiana tabacum asparagine synthetase (AS) gene in roots, and that AS might play a main role as a detoxifying mechanism to convert ammonium into asparagine. Interestingly, glutamate dehydrogenase (GDH) genes, Ntgdh-NAD;A1 and Ntgdh-NAD;B2, were up-regulated when t...
Article
Changes in root architecture are one of the adaptive strategies used by plants to compensate for nutrient deficiencies in soils. In this work, the temporal responses of Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana) root system architecture to low boron (B) supply were investigated. Arabidopsis Col-0 seedlings were grown in 10 µM B for 5 days and then transfer...
Article
To date, one asparagine synthetase (AS) mRNA has been identified in Nicotiana tabacum. Our results point out that this gene encodes an actual AS protein. This proposal is supported by the following facts. (i) Blast analysis indicates that tobacco AS gene shows increased percent identity with several AS genes of different plant species. (ii) Leaf an...
Article
Plant cell wall is a dynamic structure that is of fundamental importance in plant growth and development, as well as in the response to environmental stresses. There is direct evidence for a role of boron (B) in cross-linking of cell wall rhamnogalacturonan II (RG-II) and pectin assembly, which shows that B is essential for cell wall structure and...
Article
Full-text available
It is very well proved that boron (B) plays a primary structural role in the plant cell wall. In addition, this micronutrient has been involved in a great variety of physiological processes in vascular plants. It has been reported that B deficiency induces stress-responsive genes and, in tobacco plants, it seems to decrease net nitrate uptake by re...
