Abstract
Plant GSK3-like kinases are key regulators that modulate a broad range of physiological processes such as cell growth, stomatal and flower development, responses for abiotic and biotic stress, and carbohydrate metabolism. Arabidopsis Shaggy/GSK3-like kinases (AtSK) consist of ten members that are classified into four subfamilies (I similar to IV). Only one of these Arabidopsis GSK3s, BIN2 (also named AtSK21), has been characterized by biochemical and genetic studies. BIN2 acts as a negative regulator in brassinosteroid (BR) signaling that controls cell growth and differentiation. Recent studies suggest that at least seven AtSKs are involved in BR signaling. However, specificities for the substrates and the functional differences of each member of the family remain to be determined. Here we report structural characteristics and distinct function of AtSK12 compared with BIN2. AtSK12 has a longer N-terminal extension, which is absent in BIN2. Transgenic plants overexpressing the AtSK12 mutant carrying deletion of Nterminal region display more severe dwarf phenotypes than those of the wild-type AtSK12. Microscopic analysis reveals that N-terminal-deleted AtSK12 accumulates in the nucleus. This implies that structural difference in the Nterminal region of AtSK members contributes to their subcellular localization. In contrast to BIN2, overexpression of AtSK12 does not cause a stomatal cluster. Furthermore, we show that YODA MAPKKK, which controls stomatal development, interacts with BIN2 but not with AtSK12. Our results suggest that AtSK12 mediates BR-regulated cell growth but not stomatal development while BIN2 regulates both processes. Our study provides evidence that different GSK3 members can have overlapping but non-identical functions.
