Abstract

Transcriptional responses to growth in high environmental calcium concentrations were characterized and compared between wild-type and mutant Arabidopsis plants containing a knockout mutation in the gene encoding a cyclic nucleotide-gated channel (CNGC2). We show that the transcriptional profile of cngc2 plants grown in normal media resembled that from wild-type plants grown under elevated exogenous calcium conditions. The mutant grown in high-calcium media exhibited transcriptional changes not seen in the wild-type. The pattern of transcription suggests that adaptation to high external calcium overlaps with responses towards various biotic and abiotic stresses.
