Arabidopsis thaliana CYCLIC NUCLEOTIDE‐GATED CHANNEL2 mediates extracellular ATP signal transduction in root epidermis

Abstract : Damage can be signalled by extracellular ATP (eATP) using plasma membrane (PM) receptors to effect cytosolic free Ca 2+ ([Ca 2+ ] cyt) increase as a second messenger. The downstream PM Ca 2+ channels remain enigmatic. Here, the Arabidopsis thaliana Ca 2+ channel subunit Cyclic Nucleotide-Gated Channel2 (CNGC2) was identified as a critical component linking eATP receptors to downstream [Ca 2+ ] cyt signalling in roots.  eATP-induced changes in single epidermal cell PM voltage and conductance were measured electrophysiologically, changes in root [Ca 2+ ] cyt were measured with aequorin and root transcriptional changes were determined by qRT-PCR. Two cngc2 loss of function mutants were used: cngc2-3 and dnd1 (which expresses cytosolic aequorin).  eATP-induced transient depolarisation of Arabidopsis root elongation zone epidermal PM voltage was Ca 2+-dependent, requiring CNGC2 but not CNGC4 (its channel co-subunit in immunity signalling). Activation of PM Ca 2+ influx currents also required CNGC2. The eATP-induced [Ca 2+ ] cyt increase and transcriptional response in cngc2 roots were significantly impaired.  CNGC2 is required for eATP-induced epidermal Ca 2+ influx, causing depolarisation leading to [Ca 2+ ] cyt increase and damage-related transcriptional response.
