Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue, “Plant Proteomics and Molecular Breeding for Stress-Resistant Varieties”, will focus on research into plant proteomics and techniques and methods of plant molecular breeding for resistance to cold, heat, drought, salt, disease, and insects. Preference will be given to publications presenting results that provide significant new insights into biological problems and molecular breeding approaches for stress-resistant varieties of plants. We also welcome studies exploring the diversity of the plant proteome, which can help us better understand the genetic and biochemical foundations of plant protein diversity, strategies for analyzing proteomic diversity using mass spectrometry technology, and post-translational modification and subcellular localization. The establishment and exploration of molecular breeding methods are helpful in the application of molecular markers, gene editing, and transgenic techniques in crop breeding, as well as the rapid selection of high-stress-resistant varieties. This Special Issue of Plants will highlight discoveries of functions, mechanisms, and regulation in plant resistance to stress and molecular breeding technology and applications of plant stress resistance.

This study identified 13 GhTIR1/AFB members in G. hirsutum through bioinformatics methods and divided them into three subgroups by phylogenetic tree analysis. Motif and gene structure analysis showed that the genes in this family were highly conserved. Promoter cis-acting element analysis found that the promoters of GhTIR1/AFBs contained a large number of cis-acting elements in response to growth and development and abiotic stress. Further RT-qPCR results showed that GhTIR1/AFB genes responded to various abiotic stresses such as IAA, ABA, cold, and heat, and the expression levels of each gene changed obviously, especially Gh_D08G0763 (GhTIR1), which responded significantly to cold injury. Using VIGS (virus-induced gene silencing) technology to silence Gh_D08G0763 in the cold-tolerant cotton variety ZM36, it was found that the resistance of ZM36 to cold damage was significantly reduced. The physiological response mechanism of the Gh_D08G0763 in resisting cold damage was further analyzed through trypan blue staining of leaves and determination of enzyme activity levels. This study provided effective genetic resources for cotton cold-tolerance breeding. Full article
