抄録

Met-overaccumulating mutants provide a powerful genetic tool for examining both the regulation of the Met biosynthetic pathway and <i>in vivo</i> developmental responses of gene expression to altered Met levels. We have previously reported the identification of two <i>Arabidopsis thaliana</i> Met over-accumulation (<i>mto</i>) mutants, <i>mto1-1</i> and <i>mto2-1</i>, that carry mutations in the genes encoding cystathionine γ-synthase (CGS) and threonine synthase (TS), respectively. A third mutant, <i>mto3-1</i>, has recently been reported to carry a mutation in the gene encoding <i>S</i>-adenosylmethionine synthetase 3 (SAMS3). Here, we report the isolation of a new ethionine-resistant <i>A. thaliana</i> mutant that over-accumulates soluble Met approximately 20-fold in young rosettes. The causal mutation was determined to be a single, recessive mutation that was mapped to chromosome 3. Sequence analysis identified a single nucleotide change in the gene encoding SAMS3 that was distinct from the <i>mto3-1</i> mutation and altered the amino acid sequence of the enzyme active site. This mutation was therefore referred to as <i>mto3-2</i>. Although Met over-accumulation in the <i>mto3-2</i> mutant was similar to that in the <i>mto2-1</i> mutant, CGS mRNA levels did not respond to the <i>mto3-2</i> mutation and were similar to that in equivalent wild-type plants.<br>
