ROS: Central Component of Signaling Network in Plant Cell

  • Soumen Bhattacharjee


Plants often deliberately generate and exploit reactive oxygen species (ROS) or its secondary breakdown products for a number of processes ranging from cell signaling to gene expression. The cellular language associated with ROS signaling network involves a close coordination of four interacting phenomenons, ranging from ROS sensing, signaling, differential expression of redox-sensitive genes, and influencing stress and developmental responses of the plant. The role of ROS as “second messenger” modulating the activities of specific transcription factors or functional proteins is well elucidated. Apart from its bona fide role in the signaling cascades, ROS often complements, synergizes, and antagonizes several growth regulatory circuits through cross talking with other signaling molecules. In this perspective, understanding the mechanism of ROS sensing associated with subsequent signaling cascades in plant cell is not only fundamental but also of immense practical significance, since this knowledge may contribute significantly in agricultural productivity by better management of environmental and oxidative stress. The position of these prooxidants under environmental stress demonstrated that it is essential for the perception and communication of environmental stimuli and associated developmental processes. The retrograde signaling induced by ROS are extremely significant in maintaining cellular redox homeostasis and controlling systemic signaling cascades associated with stress acclamatory responses. Apart from the direct role of ROS in cell signaling, some of the products of oxidative stress, particularly reactive lipid species (RLS), also represent “biological signals,” which do not need preceding activation of genes. In the present chapter, an effort has been made to discuss the mechanism of ROS sensing in the elaborate signaling network of plant cell. The present chapter also explores both the mechanisms of signaling cascade of ROS in plant acclamatory defense processes, controlled cell death, and development. The role of redox-sensitive proteins in ROS signaling, its subsequent regulation of Ca2+ homeostasis, and MAPK cascades is also discussed. An additional effort has been made to understand the mechanism of H2O2-regulated gene expression in plant cell.
