Summary of "Heat priming effects on anthesis heat stress in wheat cultivars (Triticum aestivum L.) with contrasting tolerance to heat stress."

The incidence of heat episodes during the phase of reproductive development in crops is accountable for great yield losses worldwide. Plants subjected to stress events during vegetative stages (primed) are reported be more resistant to future stress exposure during the reproductive phases. We aimed to test if repeated early abiotic stresses could improve heat tolerance during anthesis in wheat cultivars. Two wheat cultivars (Triticum aestivum L.), 'Gladius' and 'Paragon', were subjected to a heat priming process consisting of two periods with heat at the developmental stages of three and five completely developed leaves, respectively. The primed and non-primed plants were later subjected to either a heat stress or non-heat stress (control) temperature for seven days during anthesis. Gas exchange and chlorophyll fluorescence were used to investigate the physiological performance of the plants. No difference in assimilation rate was observed between treatments for 'Gladius'. Measurements were not possible to obtain for heat stressed 'Paragon' plants due to premature senescence. We did not observe strong evidence to prove our hypothesis of early heat stress (priming) being accountable for improving heat tolerance. However, a significant difference between cultivars in response to heat stress was observed. The yield parameters of 'Gladius' primed plants did not differ from their respectively control treatment. A distinct result was observed for the heat sensitive cultivar 'Paragon', suggesting a cumulative deleterious effect caused by the repeated heat stress.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Heat and cold stress-inducible, transcription factors that bind to inverted 5'-NGAAN-3' pentamer DNA sequences and are regulated by poly(ADP) ribosylation. They play essential roles as transcriptional activators of the HEAT-SHOCK RESPONSE by inducing expression of large classes of MOLECULAR CHAPERONES and heat-shock proteins. They also function in DNA REPAIR; transcriptional reactivation of latent HIV-1; and pre-mRNA processing and nuclear export of HSP70 HEAT-SHOCK PROTEINS during heat stress.

A group of conditions due to overexposure to or overexertion in excess environmental temperature. It includes heat cramps, which are non-emergent and treated by salt replacement; HEAT EXHAUSTION, which is more serious, treated with fluid and salt replacement; and HEAT STROKE, a condition most commonly affecting extremes of age, especially the elderly, accompanied by convulsions, delusions, or coma and treated with cooling the body and replacement of fluids and salts. (From Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)

Stress-inducible members of the heat-shock proteins 70 family. HSP72 heat shock proteins function with other MOLECULAR CHAPERONES to mediate PROTEIN FOLDING and to stabilize pre-existent proteins against aggregation.

A clinical syndrome caused by heat stress, such as over-exertion in a hot environment or excessive exposure to sun. It is characterized by SWEATING, water (volume) depletion, salt depletion, cool clammy skin, NAUSEA, and HEADACHE.

A family of heat-shock proteins that contain a 70 amino-acid consensus sequence known as the J domain. The J domain of HSP40 heat shock proteins interacts with HSP70 HEAT-SHOCK PROTEINS. HSP40 heat-shock proteins play a role in regulating the ADENOSINE TRIPHOSPHATASES activity of HSP70 heat-shock proteins.
