     Genetics of peroxisome biogenesis, dynamics, and function and auxin regulation and responses in Arabidopsis development.
     

    Research Statement 2014

     

    Our laboratory uses genetic, cell biological, and biochemical approaches in Arabidopsis thaliana to elucidate fundamentals aspects of plant biology, including auxin regulation and the roles and biogenesis of peroxisomes.


    Bartel's Research


    The phytohormone auxin promotes cell expansion, division, and differentiation, thereby regulating a plethora of developmental events and environmental responses.  We use Arabidopsis mutants to identify genes providing inputs to the auxin pool, to distinguish precursors from active auxin, and to disentangle contributions of different auxin biosynthetic pathways to development.  We have identified enzymes that release auxin from precursors, discovered that the ER and peroxisomes compartmentalize auxin production pathways, and revealed the importance of different auxin sources for various aspects of plant development. We also have isolated novel auxin-signaling mutants and exploited these mutants to illuminate the interactions of auxin signaling with other phytohormone pathways and novel facets of auxin signaling.


    Our finding that conversion of the auxin precursor indole-3-butryic acid (IBA) to the active auxin indole-3-acetic acid (IAA) occurs in peroxisomes motivated our study of the biogenesis, function, and dynamics this vital organelle.  Peroxisomes compartmentalize certain metabolic reactions, thereby protecting the cytosol from oxidative damage.  We employ IBA-response screens to isolate mutants defective in enzymes catalyzing IBA-to-IAA conversion and mutants defective in biogenesis of peroxisomes, which house these enzymes.  Our analysis of these mutants is revealing new matrix protein import components, unanticipated interdependencies among peroxisome biogenesis factors, and pathways for degrading peroxisome matrix proteins during developmentally controlled organelle remodeling.  We have uncovered multiple intriguing examples in which Arabidopsis peroxisomes closely resemble mammalian peroxisomes, suggesting that our studies can provide unique insights into human peroxisome biogenesis disorders.
