  • Research advances in novel DNA base editors

    ZHANG Yaling, WANG Xinhe, LI Gousi, ZENG Dongchang, ZHU Qinlong, CHEN Letian, LIU Yaoguang

    2022,43(6) DOI: 10.7671/j.issn.1001-411X.202208053


    The base editing technology is developed from the CRISPR/Cas gene editing systems, which can perform accurate base or gene editing at the DNA level. Recent years, six types of novel DNA base editors have been developed for the editing of nuclear and organellar genomes, including the cytosine base editor (CBE), the adenine base editor (ABE), the glycosylase base editor (GBE), the adenine and cytosine dual base editor (DBE), the prime editor (PE) and the mitochondrial genome editor. In this review, we summarize the principles, optimization processes and current advances of the above six DNA editors and focus on their application in crop genetic improvement. Finally, the future development of base editing technology is prospected.

  • Advances in protein modifications for fertility regulation and reproductive development in plants

    LI Gousi, ZHANG Yaling, MA Kun, XIE Yongyao, CHEN Letian

    2022,43(6) DOI: 10.7671/j.issn.1001-411X.202208054


    Plant fertility regulation and reproductive development are not only essential for plant reproduction, but also the genetic basis of hybrid crop breeding. Post-translational protein modifications are the important regulation mechanism of different activities during plant development. In recent years, the molecular networks of fertility regulation and reproductive development in plants have been greatly advanced. However, very few reviews focus on how post-translational protein modifications involve in the plant fertility control. In this review, we summarize the function of phosphorylation, ubiquitination, SUMOylation and glycosylation on male fertility regulation, which provides some insights into further studies.

  • Regulation mechanism and breeding application of rice floret-opening-time

    GOU Yajun, ZHU Xinyu, WANG Haiyang, SHEN Rongxin

    2022,43(6) DOI: 10.7671/j.issn.1001-411X.202208056


    Rice (Oryza sativa L.) is a strictly autogamous crop. Floret-opening-time (FOT) is an important agronomic trait in rice, which is complicatedly regulated by internal factors (plant hormones, genetic factors, etc.) and external environmental factors (temperature, light, humidity, CO2 concentration, etc.). Floret opening at an appropriate time is very critical for the success of rice reproduction. If the floret opens too early in the morning, rice is vulnerable to pathogen infection caused by low temperature and heavy dew. In contrast, if the floret opens too late, the seed setting of rice would be severely affected by high temperature in the afternoon. Moreover, synchronized FOT between the male and female parents is a key requirement for successful production of hybrid seeds. In this review, we summarize the research progresses on the regulation of FOT in rice, mainly focusing on the aspects including the structural basis, physiological basis, genetic basis and molecular mechanism of controlling rice floret opening. We also present some important topics for future in-depth studies of FOT. Finally, we discuss the value of modulating FOT trait for improving rice production and indica-japonica inter-subspecies hybrid rice breeding.

  • Research progress and challenge of environment-sensitive genic male sterility in rice

    PENG Guoqing, LIU Minglong, ZHOU Hai, ZHUANG Chuxiong

    2022,43(6) DOI: 10.7671/j.issn.1001-411X.202207021


    Two-line hybrid rice based on environment-sensitive genic male sterility plays an important role in ensuring food security in our country. At present, dozens of environment-sensitive male sterility genes have been found in rice, and some of them have been cloned and their regulatory mechanisms have been studied in detail. In this paper, we reviewed the application and molecular mechanisms of RNA metabolism, signal transduction, transcriptional regulation, pollen wall synthesis and amino acid metabolism of environment-sensitive genic male sterility in rice. Finally, challenges and corresponding countermeasures of environment-sensitive genic male sterility research in rice are also analyzed and proposed.

  • Advances in improvement of crop photosynthetic efficiency by optimizing the photosynthetic carbon assimilation

    ZHANG Zhisheng, ZHU Guohui, PENG Xinxiang

    2022,43(6) DOI: 10.7671/j.issn.1001-411X.202208012


    With the continuing growth of population and the decrease in arable lands, the global food crisis is becoming a serious problem for human beings. Therefore, further improving crop yield is important for our country to ensure food production safety. Photosynthesis is the material basis for crop yield, and the crop improvement focusing on increasing photosynthetic efficiency via modern breeding technologies is considered to be a new round of “Green revolution”. In this review, we summarize recent advances, current challenges, and applications in enhancing plant carbon assimilation through different approaches, including improving the carboxylation activity of Rubisco, introducing C4 photosynthesis into C3 crops, and reducing photorespiration. We also propose promising research emphasis and directions for imporving photosynthetic carbon assimilation of plants.

  • Long-distance signal transduction of nitrogen and phosphorus in plants

    WANG Xiaotian, WANG Wei, CHEN Jiajun, CHU Chengcai

    2022,43(6) DOI: 10.7671/j.issn.1001-411X.202208058


    In response to varied nutrient availability in soil, plants exhibit high physiological and developmental plasticity to integrate and coordinate the information of nutrient sensing between shoots and roots, and systematically regulate the whole-plant nutrient response and growth and development. This signal transduction process largely relies on the transportation of signal molecules via vascular systems, so-called long-distance signaling. Although plants require numerous mineral elements from the soil, the major nutrients that limit plant productivity are nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P). Recent studies have elucidated that various mobile signals, such as small proteins, peptides, and microRNAs, are responsible for long-distance signaling of N and P. Here, we summarize the long-distance signal molecules identified in N and P nutrition and their related signal transduction mechanisms, provide an overview of the influence of light signals on the long-distance signal of N and P, and also discuss the future research direction of long-distance signals.

  • Regulatory mechanism of autophagy in formation of crop agronomic traits and potential application

    LI Yiming, YANG Qianying, XIE Qingjun

    2022,43(6) DOI: 10.7671/j.issn.1001-411X.202208057


    Autophagy is a highly conserved and important degradation pathway in eukaryotes during evolution. Damaged proteins or organelles are wrapped into autophagic vesicles with bilayer membrane structure, they are then transported to lysosomes(animals) or vacuoles(yeast and plants) for degradation, and finally the recycling of cell contents is completed. With the in-depth study of autophagy in animals and yeast, people are paying more and more attention to plant autophagy, and the related research is gradually expanding from model plants to crops. To better understand the effects of autophagy in crop yield, quality and resistance, etc, we summarized the recent advances in autophagy in crop plants, and discussed the regulatory mechanism of autophagy in the formation of important agronomic traits in depth. This paper will provide references for further improving crop agronomic traits and agricultural production efficiency.

    药物转运体介导种类不同、结构各异的药物跨越细胞膜,影响药物在各组织器官中的浓度以及系统暴露量,不但是影响药效的关键因素,也是重要的药物?药物相互作用位点。人体中关键的药物转运体属于ABC结合盒 (ATP-binding cassette) 超家族或溶质载体 (Solute carrier) 超家族,分别介导细胞对药物的外排和吸收,两者协同作用,共同决定细胞内的药物浓度。作为膜蛋白,药物转运体在翻译后需要经过一系列复杂而精细的调控才能到达作用位点,发挥功能。此外,人体在药物的摄取过程中需要作出快速应对,因此往往以翻译后修饰的方式进行响应;而病理条件下转运体的功能也可能因细胞中各翻译后调控机制的非常态化而受到影响。明确药物转运体的翻译后处置过程,对于解析转运体药物转运的分子机制、阐明遗传多态性造成的个体药物响应差异有重要意义。本文对目前药物转运体的翻译后加工和修饰的相关研究进行了综述,也对在这些调控过程中发挥关键作用的转运体基序和位点进行了总结。
