从菜薹叶片中分离获得1个WRKY转录因子,命名为BrWRKY57。氨基酸序列比对及进化树分析发现BrWRKY57与拟南芥AtWRKY57同源性较高,含有1个WRKY保守结构域,且同属于WRKY转录因子家族Ⅱc亚族。实时荧光定量PCR分析表明,BrWRKY57随着菜薹叶片衰老表达水平升高,外源脱落酸(abscisic acid,ABA)处理显著诱导其表达。亚细胞定位和转录活性分析表明,BrWRKY57定位于细胞核,且在酵母和烟草体内都具有转录激活活性。双荧光素酶瞬时表达试验显示,BrWRKY57可以激活叶绿素降解相关基因BrPPH1和ABA合成相关基因BrNCED3的启动子活性。以上研究结果表明,BrWRKY57参与菜薹叶片衰老过程可能与影响叶绿素降解和ABA合成相关基因的表达有关。

In this study,a WRKY transcription factor termed BrWRKY57,was obtained from Chinese flowering cabbage. Amino acid sequence alignment and phylogenetic analysis revealed that BrWRKY57 contained one WRKY conserved domain,exhibited the highest homology with Arabidopsis thalianaAtWRKY57,and belonged to sub-group IIc. Real-time quantitative PCR analysis demonstrated that BrWRKY57 was up-regulated during leaf senescence of Chinese flowering cabbage,and its expression was significantly enhanced by abscisic acid(ABA)treatment. Subcellular localization and transcriptional activity analysis suggested that BrWRKY57 was a nuclear protein and had transcriptional activation activity. Moreover,dual-luciferase transient expression assay revealed that BrWRKY57 could activate the promoter activities of chlorophyll catabolic gene BrPPH1and ABA biosynthetic gene BrNCED3. These results indicate that BrWRKY57 might be associated with Chinese flowering cabbage leaf senescence via effecting the genes expression of chlorophyll degradation and ABA synthesis.
