Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to identify and functionally characterizesolute transporters from the chloroplast thylakoid membrane ofArabidopsis thaliana. As compared to chloroplast envelope transporters,much less information is available for transport processesacross the thylakoid membrane, which is mostly studied as thesite of light-driven photosynthetic reactions coupled to ATP synthesis.Although there are many reported examples of transportactivities, only a few thylakoid transporters have been identifiedat the gene level. Using bioinformatics analyses, we have predictedthe existence of approx. fifteen thylakoid transporters. Forexperimental validation, we have carried out immuno-localizationstudies used peptide-specific antibodies, functional analyses inheterologous system and validation using knockout mutants. Wehave recently identified one ATP/ADP carrier (Thuswaldneret al. JBC 2007) and one Na(+)-dependent phosphate transporter(Ruiz Pavon et al. JBC 2008). They are proposed to participatein the nucleotide metabolism in the thylakoid lumen(Spetea et al. PNAS 20004) as well as to balance the transthylakodproton electrochemical gradient storage. Based on phenotypicanalyses of knockout mutants, we will present novel dataabout the key physiological role of the two transporters duringthe high-light-induced repair of photosystem II complex in thethylakoid membrane. Subsequently, we will make a survey on theoutlook of thylakoid activities awaiting identification of responsibleproteins. Such knowledge is necessary to understand the thylakoidnetwork of transporters, and its role in photosynthesisand adaptation to environmental stress.

Abstract [en]

The chloroplast thylakoid ATP/ADP carrier (TAAC) belongs to the mitochondrial carrier superfamily and supplies the thylakoid lumen with stromal ATP in exchange for ADP. Here, we investigate the physiological consequences of TAAC depletion in Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana). We show that the deficiency of TAAC in two T-DNA insertion lines does not modify the chloroplast ultrastructure, the relative amounts of photosynthetic proteins, the pigment composition, and the photosynthetic activity. Under growth light conditions, the mutants initially displayed similar shoot weight, but lower when reaching full development, and were less tolerant to high light conditions in comparison with the wild type. These observations prompted us to study in more detail the effects of TAAC depletion on photoinhibition and photoprotection of the photosystem II (PSII) complex. The steady-state phosphorylation levels of PSII proteins were not affected, but the degradation of the reaction center II D1 protein was blocked, and decreased amounts of CP43-less PSII monomers were detected in the mutants. Besides this, the mutant leaves displayed a transiently higher nonphotochemical quenching of chlorophyll fluorescence than the wild-type leaves, especially at low light. This may be attributed to the accumulation in the absence of TAAC of a higher electrochemical H+ gradient in the first minutes of illumination, which more efficiently activates photoprotective xanthophyll cycle-dependent and independent mechanisms. Based on these results, we propose that TAAC plays a critical role in the disassembly steps during PSII repair and in addition may balance the trans-thylakoid electrochemical H+ gradient storage.

Abstract [en]

Caveolae are nearly ubiquitous plasma membrane domains that in adipocytes vary in size between 25 and 150 nm. They constitute sites of entry into the cell as well as platforms for cell signalling. We have previously reported that plasma membrane-associated caveolae that lack cell surface access can be identified by electron microscopy. We now report the identification, after density gradient ultracentrifugation, of a subclass of very high-density apparently closed caveolae that were not labelled by cell surface protein labelling of intact cells. These caveolae contained caveolin-1 and caveolin-2. Another class of high-density caveolae contained caveolin-1, caveolin-2 and specifically fatty acid transport protein-1, fatty acid transport protein-4, fatty acyl-CoA synthetase, hormone-sensitive lipase, perilipin, and insulin-regulated glucose transporter-4. This class of caveolae was specialized in fatty acid uptake and conversion to triacylglycerol. A third class of low-density caveolae contained the insulin receptor, class B scavenger receptor-1, and insulin-regulated glucose transporter-4. Small amounts of these proteins were also detected in the high-density caveolae. In response to insulin, the insulin receptor autophosphorylation and the amount of insulin-regulated glucose transporter-4 increased in these caveolae. The molar ratio of cholesterol to phospholipid in the three caveolae classes varied considerably, from 0.4 in very high-density caveolae to 0.9 in low-density caveolae. There was no correlation between the caveolar contents of caveolin and cholesterol. The low-density caveolae, with the highest cholesterol concentration, were particularly enriched with the cholesterol-rich lipoprotein receptor class B scavenger receptor-1, which mediated cholesteryl ester uptake from high-density lipoprotein and generation of free cholesterol in these caveolae, suggesting a specific role in cholesterol uptake/metabolism. These findings demonstrate a segregation of functions in caveolae subclasses.
