Title Landscape of the lipidome and transcriptome under heat stress in Arabidopsis thaliana.
Description Environmental stress causes membrane damage in plants. Lipid studies are required to understand the adaptation of plants to climate change. Here, LC-MS-based lipidomic and microarray transcriptome analyses were carried out to elucidate the effect of short-term heat stress on the Arabidopsis thaliana leaf membrane. Vegetative plants were subjected to high temperatures for one day, and then grown under normal conditions. Sixty-six detected glycerolipid species were classified according to patterns of compositional change by Spearman’s correlation coefficient. Triacylglycerols, 36:4- and 36:5-monogalactosyldiacylglycerol, 34:2- and 36:2-digalactosyldiacylglycerol, 34:1-, 36:1- and 36:6-phosphatidylcholine, and 34:1-phosphatidylethanolamine increased by the stress and immediately decreased during recovery. The relative amount of one triacylglycerol species (54:9) containing α-linolenic acid (18:3) increased under heat stress. These results suggest that heat stress in Arabidopsis leaves induces an increase in triacylglycerol levels, which functions as an intermediate of lipid turnover, and results in a decrease in membrane polyunsaturated fatty acids. Microarray data revealed candidate genes responsible for the observed metabolic changes.

Compound - ID
Compound - Source
Preparation Arabidopsis thaliana ecotype Columbia (Col-0) and Nossen were used. Arabidopsis seeds were surface-sterilised and sown on an agar-solidified Murashige and Skoog medium containing 0.5% (w/v) sucrose. Plants were grown at 22 °C under a 16-h-light/8-h-dark cycle. Fourteen-day-old Col-0 and Nossen plants at about 3 h after the onset of the light phase were subjected to heat stress at 22 °C (control), 30 °C, 34 °C or 38 °C for one day under a continuous light condition (biological replicate N = 4) (Supplementary Fig. S1). For recovery experiments, 18-day-old Col-0 and 14-day-old Nossen plants were subjected to heat stress at 38 °C for one day under the 16/8 h light-dark cycle, and then returned to 22 °C and grown for one day and 2 days longer (biological replicate N = 3, 4, 8, or 12).

Aerial parts were harvested at about 3 h after the onset of light phase.

Description Crude lipid was extracted from the aerial parts according to the method of Okazaki et al.. The dried chloroform extract was dissolved in 160 μL ethanol for LC-MS analysis. The conditions for LC-MS analysis were described in the same paper. Lipid data were obtained from 77 distinct plant samples that included 6 environmental conditions and 2 ecotypes, in which the plant samples were prepared from 6 individual growth periods.
