Abstract

Metal tolerance is often a result of metal storage or distribution. Thus, with the goal of advancing the molecular understanding of such metal homeostatic mechanisms, natural variation of metal tolerance in Arabidopsis thaliana was investigated. Substantial variation exists in tolerance of excess copper (Cu), zinc (Zn) and cadmium (Cd). Two accessions, Col-0 and Bur-0, and a recombinant inbred line (RIL) population derived from these parents were chosen for further analysis of Cd and Zn tolerance variation, which is evident at different plant ages in various experimental systems and appears to be genetically linked. Three QTLs, explaining in total nearly 50% of the variation in Cd tolerance, were mapped. The one obvious candidate gene in the mapped intervals, HMA3, is unlikely to contribute to the variation. In order to identify additional candidate genes the Cd responses of Col-0 and Bur-0 were compared at the transcriptome level. The sustained common Cd response of the two accessions was dominated by processes implicated in plant pathogen defense. Accession-specific differences suggested a more efficient activation of acclimative responses as underlying the higher Cd tolerance of Bur-0. The second hypothesis derived from the physiological characterization of the accessions is a reduced Cd accumulation in Bur-0.
