Research Topics

For a long time considered as a rigid envelopes surrounding plant cells, the cell walls now appears as a dynamic compartments involved in many physiological processes such as developpement, signaling or defense against biotic and abiotic stresses. Plant cell walls are mainly composed of polysaccharides (about 90% in mass) but they also contain proteins, forming altogether complex supramolecular scaffolds. Their biochemical composition and the organization of their components change during development and in response to environmental factors. The proteins play key roles in the remodeling of the cell wall architecture, by modifying the polysaccharides, generating signals or interacting with the other cell wall components.

Our work aims at the understanding of the roles of the cell wall proteins during plant development. It is then necessary (i) to identify the whole cell wall protein complement, (ii) to follow the dynamics of the proteome in different physiological conditions, and (iii) to perform functional studies.  These functional studies have led to the description of cell wall microdomains performing specific functions during particular developmental stages and of non covalent proteins/polysaccharides networks possibly allowing a quick reorganization of the cell wall networks during rapid growth phases. The reactive oxygen species (ROS), which are key players of many physiological processes, are also involved in the cell wall dynamics. We look at the control of their production by cell wall proteins as well as their localization. Finally, we are interested in the evolution of some cell wall protein families by studying different organisms along the green lineage, from aquatic plants considered as ancestors of land plants, to plants appeared more recently  during its evolution.

Our team has also developed several bioinformatic tools open to the scientific community. Three databases have been created and are regularly updated : Redoxibase, ProtAnnDB and WallProtDB.

Since the beginning of the 2000’s, our team has performed plant cell wall proteomics studies and has acquired an international reputation in this area. We have greatly contributed to the analysis of the cell wall proteome of the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana which represents the best described cell wall proteome to date with 975 identified proteins  (Albenne et al. 2013). Several materials have been studied in our team: cell suspension cultures (Borderies et al. 2003), roots (Nguyen-Kim et al. 2016), rosettes (Boudart et al. 2005, Hervé et al. 2016), stems (Duruflé et al. 2017), the secretome of etiolated plantlets cultivated in liquid medium (Charmont et al. 2005) or etiolated hypocotyls (Feiz et al. 2006, Irshad et al. 2008).

Protocols dedicated to the purification of cell walls (Feiz et al. 2006) and to the extraction of cell wall proteins from the purified cell walls with salt solutions (Irshad et al. 2008) have been established. They have allowed the analysis of the cell wall proteomes of different plant sepcies: Brachypodium distachyon (Douché et al. 2013, 2021; Francin-Allami et al.  2015, 2016; Pinski et al. 2021), Saccharum officinarum (Calderan-Rodrigues et al. 2014, 2016, 2017; Fonseca et al. 2018) and Triticum aestivum (Cherkaoui et al. 2018, 2020). This work has shown the great diversity of cell wall proteins as well as the differences between the proteomes of different organs, thus illustrating the cell wall plasticity.

Beyond the identification of the proteins, we have described post-translational modifications like N-glycosylations (Ligat et al. 2011, Zhang et al. 2011), hydroxylation of proline residues (Pro) in hydroxyprolines (Hyp) (Nguyen-Kim et al. 2016, Duruflé et al. 2017) or O-glycosylation of Hyp residues (Hijazi et al. 2012). We have been able to propose a new code to predict the occurrence of Hyp residues in the amino acid sequences of the hydroxyproline-rich glycoproteins (HRGPs) (Canut et al. 2016, Duruflé et al. 2017).

The ProtAnnDB database has been created to annotate the proteins identified by mass spectrometry and bioinformatics on the basis of the prediction of sub-cellular localization and of functional domains annotated by experts  (San Clemente et al. 2009). This annotation allows comparing  the different proteomes collected in the  WallProtDB database (San Clemente and Jamet 2015). This work has allowed distinguishing two groups of proteins: (i) those which have a predicted signal peptide and which are called cell wall proteins, and (ii) those which have no predicted signal peptide and could be either intracellular contaminants or secreted by alternative pathways yet to be described in plants (Albenne et al. 2013, Regente et al. 2017). More recently, the mass spectrometry data have been used to compare the N- and C-terminal ends of the cell wall proteins determined experimentally to those predicted by bioinformatics (Pinski et al. 2021).

We have contributed to the creation of new cloning vectors to quickly check the sub-cellular localization of proteins of interest identified in the cell wall proteomes. We can easily obtain proteins in fusion with different kinds of fluorescent proteins which are stable at the acidic pH of the cell walls, like the TagRFP, the TagBFP or the T-Sapphire (Albenne et al. 2014; Berthold, Roujol et al. 2019; Roujol et al. 2020; Pinski et al. 2021).

Our studies are now focused on the study of the cell wall proteomes of plants considered as ancestors of the green lineage as well as of other plant species through collaborations. It should allow us to study the evolution of the plant cell wall proteome. Besides, we are involved in an ANR project called STRESS-PEPT which is devoted to the study of the role of extracellular peptides during plant-microorganisms interactions.

1. Dynamics of cell wall microdomains during development and seed germination in Arabidopsis thaliana

Plant cell walls are highly dynamic structures that are constantly remodeled during plant development. We are particularly interested in the molecular scaffolds enabling either loosening or stiffening events of cell wall microdomains which are necessary for proper establishment of cellular architecture, in turn necessary for proper plant development. We mainly use two Arabidopsis thaliana cellular models to tackle this question: (i) the seed mucilage secretory cells (Francoz et al. 2015, Francoz et al. 2019) and (ii) the seed micropylar endosperm (Jemmat et al. 2020). The main molecular actors that we are interested in are class III peroxidases (CIII-Prxs) that are able to either loosen or stiffen cell wall microdomains depending on the considered isoform within the 73 members of the multigenic family (Francoz et al. 2015). Following an in situ hybridization screening step of spatiotemporal expression profiles of CIII Prxs genes during A. thaliana seed development (Francoz et al. 2016) and seed germination (Jemmat et al., 2020), we have identified candidate genes for further functional studies. We extensively studied the molecular mechanism enabling the positioning the CIII Prx PRX36 to a mucilage secretory cell wall microdomain during seed development. The proper release of mucilage during seed imbibition necessitates the loosening of a mucilage secretory cell wall microdomain earlier during seed development. Using an integrated genetics-cell biology-molecular modelling study, we have discovered (i) the occurrence within this cell wall microdomain of a partially demethylesterified homogalacturonan molecular pattern controlled by PECTIN METHYLESTERASE INHIBITOR 6 (PMEI6), which constitutes (ii) an anchoring molecular platform for PRX36, allowing (iii) its highly polarized loosening action necessary for proper mucilage release (Francoz et al. 2019).

We currently pursue the study of this concept of molecular scaffolds enabling the anchoring of CIII-Prxs on homogalacturonan barcodes in the frame of the ANR-funded collaborative research project MicroWall that we coordinate.

2. Supra-molecular architecture in plant cell walls: evidence for the existence of non-covalent proteins/polysaccharides networks

Contact: Elisabeth JAMET

PhD students: Muhammad IRSHAD (2005-2008), May HIJAZI (2008-2011), Huan NGUYEN-KIM (2011-2015), Hasan KOLKAS (2019-2022)

During growth, plant cell walls have to be modified to allow the increase in size of the cells. We have focused our work on AGP31 (ArabinoGalactan Protein 31), a protein of Arabidopsis thaliana encoded by At1g28290, because it has been identified as a major protein in the cell wall proteome of etiolated hypocotyls, which cells undergo a great elongation within a short time (Irshad et al. 2008). AGP31 has a N-terminal signal peptide, an arabinogalactan protein (AGP) domain, a His-rich region, a central Pro-rich domain and a C-terminal domain called PAC (Proline-rich protein, Arabinogalactan protein, conserved Cys). Different mass spectrometry and biochemistry approaches have allowed showing the presence of hydroxyproline (Hyp) residues and of Gal/Ara-rich O-glycans in the Pro-rich domain (Hijazi et al. 2012). AGP31 has been found as various glycoforms differing by the type and the size of the O-glycans and/or the length of the polypeptide chain. Besides, interactions between the AGP31 PAC domain and the galactans present on type I rhamnogalacturonans (RG I) have been shown in vitro (Hijazi et al. 2014). AGP31 has also been shown to interact with itself, most probably through the O-glycans of its Pro/Hyp-rich domain and its PAC domain. Finally, a remarkable affinity has been found between these O-glycans and a peanut lectin (PNA, PeaNut Agglutinin), suggesting interactions with cell wall lectins (Hijazi et al. 2012).

All these data have allowed proposing that AGP31 is the center of non-covalent supramolecular scaffolds, thus playing a structural role in cell walls. They bring new concepts regarding the architecture of cell walls and highlight the central role of the O-glycoproteins in their organization (Hijazi et al. 2014).

The role of the AGP31 PAC domain in these supramolecular scaffolds has prompted us to look for the presence of PAC domains in other cell wall proteins. We have been able to show that PAC domain proteins are present in plants considered as ancestors of the flowering plants, like Marchantia polymorpha, as well as in all the plants studied so far (Nguyen-Kim et al. 2020).

The present studies aim at understanding the evolution of the PAC domain from structural and functional point of views.

PhD students: Qiang LI (2011-2015), Nizar FAWAL (2012-2015)

La Redoxibase centralise des séquences codant pour des oxydo-réductases de tous les organismes vivants. L’annotation manuelle et la correction de séquences déjà annotées sont nos préoccupations majeures, mais aussi une garantie de qualité. Cependant, avec le nombre croissant d’organismes et de séquences disponibles, la RedoxiBase évolue régulièrement pour rester compétitive et attractive (Savelli et al. 2019).

Le projet a pour objectifs : (i) de mettre en place des pipelines afin d’accélérer l’intégration de nouvelles oxydo-réductases, en vérifiant et corrigeant automatiquement les peroxydases annotées lors des nombreux projets de séquençage génomique. Pour cela, les séquences sont soumises à nos profils familles-spécifiques et comparées en terme de structure exon/intron aux séquences de la base ; (ii) de développer de nouveaux outils mis à disposition via l’interface de la RedoxiBase afin de faciliter l’analyse comparative intra-espèces et inter-espèces : visualisation des polymorphismes, outils de cartographie ou de navigation sur les génomes (e.g. MapChart, GBrowse), identification et représentation des relations d’orthologie, paralogie (e.g. SyMap, Circos).

2. Search for class III peroxidases (CIII Prxs) and Study of their evolution in the green lineage

Contacts: Catherine MATHÉ, Christophe DUNAND

PhD student: Duchesse MBADINGA MBADINGA (2017-2020)

Peroxidases catalyze redox reactions involving hydrogen peroxide and a variable substrate. These proteins are present in all kingdoms and generally form multigenic families of variable size (from 2 to 138 isoforms). The non-animal peroxidase superfamily contains three classes (I, II and III) with closely related tertiary structures and probably sharing a common ancestral sequence. Class I and III peroxidases (CI and CIII Prxs) are found in plants (Mbadinga Mbadinga et al. 2020). They have fundamental roles in different physiological processes such as reactive oxygen species (ROS) detoxification, defense against pathogens or cell wall formation (Cosio et al. 2009). CI and CIII Prx genes show a high level of duplications in plants.

The main objectives of the projectare as follows: (i) to obtain a very precise picture of the taxonomic distribution of CIII Prx genes within Charaphyceae; (ii) to reconstruct ancestral sequences on the main taxonomic nodes.

Cell wall plasticity and adaptation

PhD students: Ali ELJEBBAWI (2018-2021), Sébastien VIUDES (2018-2021)

In Arabidopsis thaliana, the 73 class III peroxidases (CIII Prxs) show specific expression profiles (Francoz et al., 2015). Recent studies tend to show that the fine localization of individual CIII Prxs could lead to a specific “enzyme-substrate” encounter allowing a controlled action in particular cell wall micro-domains. This action could contribute to cell wall loosening or stiffening.

The developmental processes leading to seed formation and seed germination were chosen to study the role of CIII Prxs. In A. thaliana, the cells located in the outermost epidermal layer of the seed (mucilage-secretory cells, MSCs) synthesize a volcano-shaped inner wall and produce abundant compressed polysaccharidic mucilage. The amount, form or composition of mucilage varies widely within Brassicaceae.

The rupture of the seed coat (testa and micropylar endosperm) is critical for germination by allowing the emergence of the radicle. On the other hand, we have shown that the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) is necessary for germination, and that CIII Prxs could be involved in ROS homeostasis.

The main objectives of the project are as follows: (i) to better understand the evolution of MSC establishment, mucilage production and extrusion mechanisms within Brassicaceae; (ii) to analyze several CIII Prx candidates that may be involved in the control of micropylar endosperm disruption.

1. Reactive oxygen species (ROS) homeostasy during root development

Contacts: Christophe DUNAND, Philippe RANOCHA

PhD student: Ali ELJEBBAWI (2018-2021)

Reactive oxygen species (ROS), well known for their deleterious effects during stress and defense responses, may also have signaling roles. The control of ROS homeostasis during biological processes such as root development is essential. This includes cell elongation, the development of root hairs and the appearance of secondary roots. Three transcription factors each controlling the expression of distinct class III peroxidases (CIII Prxs), whose general biological function is to control ROS homeostasis, were studied in Arabidopsis thaliana (Eljabbawi et al. 2021).

The main objectives of the projectare as follows: (i) the functional analysis of three CIII Prxs from A. thaliana during root hair development under contrasting growth conditions; (ii) the identification of new players related to the control of root architecture and homeostasis of ROS in response to contrasting growing conditions, such as temperature and saline stresses and their combined effects. For this, the nuclear genome of several individuals from different populations of A. thaliana rae presently sequenced and high throughput phenotypic analysis on the root system of each cultured ecotype under three temperature conditions (16°C, 22°C, 28°C) and two salt conditions (0 mM and 50 mM) are performed.

2. Lectin-receptor kinases and Perception of the cell wall integrity

Contact: Hervé CANUT

PhD students: Anne GOUGET (2002-2006), Kevin BELLANDE (2016-2019)

Our team is interested in the communication between the cell wall and the cytoplasm of plant cells. The project aims at understanding the roles of lectins in the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana.

Lectins are present in all the living world. They are able to interact with mono- or oligo-saccharides in a reversible way and to decode the information carried by these complex structures. Such molecules, mostly originating from plants, have found many applications in biological sciences and in medicine. Since their first use for blood typing, their role, often beneficial, has been demonstrated on the development of tumors and in therapy against cancer.  In the same way, lectins are essential for plants and play many roles in cell-to-cell communication, development and defense reactions.

Plant cell walls are complex structures containing cellulose, hemicelluloses, pectins and proteins secreted by the cells, thus creating an extracellular matrix connecting cells in tissues. Cell walls are dynamics and sources of mechanical and chemical signals. In A. thaliana, lectins are present in cell walls as soluble proteins weakly interacting with cell wall components (Lecs) or as extracellular domaines of lectin receptor kinases (lecRKs) (Bellande et al. 2017).

We have shown that the plasma membrane-cell wall contacts [1-white arrow] are established by protein-protein interactions involving the recognition of the Arg-Gly-Asp (RGD) motif in A. thaliana. LecRK-I.9 (At5g60300) is considered as a putative link between the plasma membrane and the cell wall (Gouget et al. 2006). It belongs to the legume lectin family [2]. We have shown that the resistance to Pseudomonas syringae pv tomato (Pst), a pathogen bacteria, and to Phytophthora infestans, an oomycete, is impaired in a lecrk-I.9 mutant (Bouwmeester et al. 2011, Balagué et al. 2016).

Besides, our analysis of the cell wall proteome of elongating cells has identified several lectins (Irshad et al. 2008). Phylogenic analyses have shown that the Lecs and the extracellular domains of LecRKs are very close to each other and form a cluster (Bellande et al. 2017). Finally, Enfin, “LecRK promoter-I.9::GUS” constructs have shown that the activity of the LecRK-I.9 promoter is the highest in the main root apex and is absent from lateral root primordia [3].

The aim of this project is to understand the role of Lecs and LecRKs. Several aproaches, including biochemitry and functional genomics, are performed to identify the extracellular ligands of these proteins. We assume that they are involved in the perception of pathogens, but also in the assembly and the remodeling of cell wall polysaccharides. Lecs and LecRKs could act as sensors of cell wall integrity.
