Title Metabolic Reprogramming in Leaf Lettuce Grown Under Different Light Quality and Intensity Conditions Using Narrow-Band LEDs
Description Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are an artificial light source used in closed-type plant factories and provide a promising solution for a year-round supply of green leafy vegetables, such as lettuce (Lactuca sativa L.). Obtaining high-quality seedlings using controlled irradiation from LEDs is critical, as the seedling health affects the growth and yield of leaf lettuce after transplantation. Because key molecular pathways underlying plant responses to a specific light quality and intensity remain poorly characterised, we used a multi-omics–based approach to evaluate the metabolic and transcriptional reprogramming of leaf lettuce seedlings grown under narrow-band LED lighting. Four types of monochromatic LEDs (one blue, two green and one red) and white fluorescent light (control) were used at low and high intensities (100 and 300 μmol·m−2·s−1, respectively). Multi-platform mass spectrometry-based metabolomics and RNA-Seq were used to determine changes in the metabolome and transcriptome of lettuce plants in response to different light qualities and intensities. Metabolic pathway analysis revealed distinct regulatory mechanisms involved in flavonoid and phenylpropanoid biosynthetic pathways under blue and green wavelengths. Taken together, these data suggest that the energy transmitted by green light is effective in creating a balance between biomass production and the production of secondary metabolites involved in plant defence.

Description Extraction for LC-q-TOF-MS to detect lipids

Each frozen sample was milled using mixer mill MM301 (Retsch) at a frequency of 20 Hz for 2 min at 4°C. After that, frozen powder was extracted with 20 fold volume of extraction solvent (chloroform/methanol/water[50 : 100 : 31.45, v/v]) containing 1 µM of 1,2-didecanoyl-sn-glycero-3- phosphocholine (SIGMA). Samples were vigorously mixed using a vortex mixture. 52.6 µl of water and 52.6 µl of chloroform were added to 200 µl of extract and then vigorously mixed for 5 min at room temperature. After standing for 15 min on ice, the samples were centrifuged at 1,000 ×g at 5°C for 5 min. The lower layer (85 µl) was transferred to a 2 ml tube. Each extract was evaporated to dryness by SPD2010 SpeedVac® concentrator (Thermo Fisher Scientific). The residue was dissolved in 162 µl of ethanol, and centrifuged at 10,000×g at 5°C for 15 min. The supernatant was transferred to a glass insert and subjected to lipid analysis by LC-MS.

LC-q-TOF-MS conditions to detect lipids
Sample extracts (1 µl) were analyzed using an LC-MS system equipped with an electrospray ionization (ESI) interface (HPLC, Waters Acquity UPLC system; MS, Waters Xevo G2 Qtof). Twosolvent (A and B) system was used for separation of each metabolite. Compositions of these solvents were as follows: solvent A, acetonitrile: water:1 M ammonium acetate:formic acid = (158 g:800g:10 ml:1 ml); solvent B, acetonitrile:2-propanol:water:1 M ammonium acetate:formic acid = (79 g:711 g:10 ml:1 ml). The analytical conditions were as follows. HPLC: column, Acquity UPLC HSS T3 (pore size 1.8 µm, 1.0 i.d × 50 mm long, Waters); gradient program, 35% B at 0 min, 70% B at 3 min, 85% B at 7 min, 90% B at 10 min, 90% B at 12 min and 35% B at 12.5 min; flow rate, 0.15 ml/min; temperature, 55°C; MS detection: capillary voltage, +3.0 kV; cone voltage, 20 V for positive mode and 40 V for negative mode; source temperature, 120°C; desolvation temperature, 450°C; cone gas flow, 50 l/h; desolvation gas flow, 450 l/h; collision energy, 6 V; detection mode, scan (m/z 100–2000; scan time, 0. 5 sec; centroid). The scans were repeated for 15 min in a single run. The data were recorded using MassLynx version 4.1 software (Waters).
