Abstract

Under conditions of reduced iron availability, most frequent in calcareous soils, plants induce the "Fe Deficiency Response" to improve root Fe uptake. The transcription factor FIT is essential for such a response in strategy I plants, such as Arabidopsis thaliana. From microarray analysis of Arabidopsis roots, it is known that three different cytochrome P450 genes, CYP82C4, CYP82C3 and CYP71B5 are up-regulated under Fe deficiency through a FIT-dependent pathway. We show that, out of these three P450 genes, only CYP82C4 strongly correlates with genes involved in metal uptake/transport. The CYP82C4 promoter, unlike those of CYP82C3 and CYP71B5, contains several IDE1-like sequences (iron deficiency-responsive element) as well as an RY element. While confirming that the CYP82C4 transcript accumulates in Fe-deficient Arabidopsis seedlings, with circadian fluctuations in a light-dependent way, we also demonstrate that such accumulation is suppressed under Fe excess. Full suppression of CYP82C4 expression, as observed in the atc82c4-1 KO mutant, is associated with longer roots at the seedling stage. We propose that CYP82C4 is involved in the early Fe deficiency response, possibly through an IDE1-like mediated pathway.
