[A model study of the role of proteins CLV1, CLV2, CLV3, and WUS in regulation of the structure of the shoot apical meristem].

[Article in Russian]

Abstract

In order to elucidate the role of proteins CLV1, CLV2, CLV3, and WUS in the mechanism underlying the maintenance of compartmental structure (spatial arrangement of the zones of biosynthesis of marker proteins) of the shoot apical meristem, a model of such mechanism was developed. Computational experiments led to biologically plausible solutions only when synthesis of substance W in a space between the organizing center and meristem apex was limited by the mechanism based on interaction of CLV3 with membrane receptor CLV1/CKV2 and lower boundary of the zone of W synthesis was determined by isoline of the corresponding threshold level of substance Y concentration. The model of the "reaction-diffusion" type formalizing the role proteins CLV1, CLV2, CLV3, and WUS can describe the basis of the mechanism underlying regulation of the compartmental structure of the shoot apical meristem and positioning of the organizing center in a certain site of the cell ensemble of such meristem.
