Comparative analysis of auxinic compounds transporter ABCG37 and various polarly localized proteins in respect of secretion, trafficking and plasma membrane dynamics

abstract
Plants as sessile organisms evolved a specific body structure and at the cellular level mechanisms that allow to survive under extreme environmental conditions. The body shape and subcellular processes are largely dependent on coordinated activity of a small molecule indole-3-acetic acid (IAA), auxin. Local gradients of IAA correlate spatiotemporally with such developmental events like embryogenesis, phyllotaxis, organ initiation or tropisms. Auxin maxima and minima are mostly mediated by auxin efflux carriers PIN's. Asymmetric distribution of these proteins determines the directional flow and facilitates the auxin gradient formation. Aberrations in apical or basal auxin-carriers localisation leads to severe developmental defects. Therefore, it is crucial to understand the mechanisms initiating and controlling polar proteins localisation. Next to polarly distributed PIN's, there is a growing group of polarly localized proteins transporting hormones or nutrients placed at the outer lateral and inner lateral polar domains. In my work I was mostly focused on polarity and function of auxinic-like compounds transporter ABCG37/PIS1, which localises to outer lateral domain in epidermal cells. I tried to characterise the transporting function of this specifically localised protein and find the regulators and mechanisms determining polarity. In order to get a more global overview about components and processes controlling asymmetric distribution of proteins I have included other asymmetrically distributed proteins like ABCG36, BOR4 or BOR1 localised to outer- or inner-lateral domains, respectively.
