Those samples were kept on ice until sampling was finished. For the analysis of IAA, the sample was separated using a Senshu Pak Pegasil ODS column (2.0 mm i.d. Forms on upper surfaces of willow leaves, especially crack willow and weeping willow. Life history of Stenopsylla nigricornis (Hemiptera: Psylloidea: Triozidae) and phytohormones involved in its gall induction. Hedgerows and damp places where the host Willow trees are present. The eluate from the Oasis HLB cartridge was concentrated and dissolved in 200 μl of 1 M formic acid and was loaded onto an Oasis MCX cartridge containing 30 mg of sorbent (Waters), washed with 800 μl of 1 M formic acid, and then eluted, first with 2 ml of methanol (IAA fraction), and then with 2 ml of 0.35 M ammonia in 60% (v/v) methanol (CK fraction). The transcriptional landscape of insect galls: psyllid (Hemiptera) gall formation in Hawaiian Metrosideros polymorpha (Myrtaceae). As shown in Fig. The suspended mixture was centrifuged at 22 000 g at 4°C, and the supernatant was added to 0.6‐ml of 0.1 M Tris buffer (pH 8.5) containing 2% cetyltrimethylammonium bromide, 20 mM EDTA, 1.4 M NaCl, and 2% β‐mercaptoethanol. Heritable Phytohormone Profiles of Poplar Genotypes Vary in Resistance to a Galling Aphid. California willow beetle; Cottonwood leaf beetle; Mealybugs. In the Southern Hemisphere (which contains few native willow species), the sawfly was found for the first time in southern Africa in 1993/94. Lower rates of parasitism and fungal attack of galls may be at least partly responsible for higher gall densities in xeric (dry) environments compared with mesic (moist) habitats. Adults that developed from the larvae that burrowed into the vermiculite emerged in early‐ to mid‐April, and were collected. The source parameters were set as follows: curtain gas, 40 psi; temperature, 500°C; spray gas (GS1), 50 psi; dry gas (GS2), 80 psi; and ion spray voltage, −4500 V. The following transitions were monitored (in parentheses, collision energy, CE; collision cell exit potential, CXP; declustering potential, DP): IAA: m/z 174 → 130 (CE −12 V, CXP 0 V, DP −25 V); [13C6]IAA: m/z 180 → 136 (CE −12 V, CXP 0 V, DP −25 V). The gall is commonly seen but the adult sawfly rarely so. Larval concentrations of both IAA and tZ decreased dramatically after the larvae escaped from galls in autumn. Female ovipositing on willow, showing the "saw" after which sawflies are named. Real‐time RT‐PCR was performed using a Thermal Cycler Dice Real Time System TP800 (Takara) with a SYBR premix Ex Taq mixture (Takara), with 40 cycles of 95°C for 5 s and 60°C for 20 s. The relative amount of transcript of each gene was calculated by the crossing‐point method using a standard curve according to the manufacturer's instructions. Liquid chromatography and tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MS/MS) were used to analyse concentrations of endogenous cytokinins and the active auxin IAA in the gall‐inducing sawfly (, Sawfly larvae contain high concentrations of IAA and. The genes analysed in this study are SjActin2 (GenBank ID: AB665956), SjCKX1 (GenBank ID: AB710329), SjCKX2, (GenBank ID: AB710330), SjGADPH (GenBank ID: AB710331), SjIAA1 (GenBank ID: AB710332), SjIAA2 (GenBank ID: AB710333), SjIAA3 (GenBank ID: AB710334), SjIAA4 (GenBank ID: AB710335), SjGH3;1 (GenBank ID: AB710336), SjType‐A_RR1 (GenBank ID: AB710337), SjCYCD3;1 (GenBank ID: AB710335), SjCYCD3;2 (GenBank ID: AB710335), SjCYCD3;3 (GenBank ID: AB710335), SjCYCD3;4 (GenBank ID: AB710335), and SjCYCD3;5 (GenBank ID: AB710335). (1962) detected two adenine derivatives out of six major compounds in extracts from the glands, which included uridine, uric acid and glutamic acid. For histological staining, phloroglucinol solution (25 mg of phloroglucinol dissolved in 3.0 ml of 50% methanol, to which 1.5 ml of concentrated HCl was added) was dropped onto each deparaffinized section, and observed using a microscope (BZ‐8100, Keyence, Osaka, Japan). These phenomena, extensive cell division and vascular development, which are frequently observed in insect galls, are highly suggestive of the actions of auxins and CKs. Comparative transcriptome analysis of galls from four different host plants suggests the molecular mechanism of gall development. The gall wasp Leptocybe invasa (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae) stimulates different chemical and phytohormone responses in two Eucalyptus varieties that vary in susceptibility to galling. The abundance of SjGAPDH transcript was selected as an internal standard, because the variation of amplified DNA amounts among the different samples was much smaller than the level of expression of actin genes. The supernatant was applied to an Oasis HLB cartridge, as described above. After incubation at 25°C for 15 h, the soaking solution was recovered as a source of insect‐derived enzymes. (1962) – from the abdomens of female adults that had been anaesthetized with diethyl ether vapour. Although the mechanism of gall induction has yet to be clarified, two categories of observation strongly suggest the involvement of chemical stimuli secreted from insects. The CKX genes encode CK dehydrogenases involved in inactivation of CKs (Brugière et al., 2003). Phytohormone Dynamics Associated with Gall Insects, and their Potential Role in the Evolution of the Gall-Inducing Habit. Bioscience, Biotechnology, and Biochemistry. Any queries (other than missing content) should be directed to the corresponding author for the article. Samples were collected in early June, early September and late October in the same year. Straka et al. (2009). S1). Host–plant relations of gall-inducing insects. Phytohormones in Fall Armyworm Saliva Modulate Defense Responses in Plants. Galls and Gall Wasps. The host plant is widespread. For the analyses of CKs, the sample was separated using Capcell Pak C18 MGIII columns (2.0 mm i.d. Adaptive significance of gall formation for a gall-inducing aphids on Japanese elm trees. The identity of [13C10,15N1]IAA was further confirmed by enhanced product‐ion scanning in the positive‐ion mode. . The presence of [13C10,15N1] IAA derived from [13C11,15N2] L‐Trp was detected by monitoring the transition m/z 185 → 140 in the MRM mode. Manipulation of host plant cells and tissues by gall-inducing insects and adaptive strategies used by different feeding guilds. Fig. Galls induced by the sawfly (Pontania sp.) In some cases galling results in a net benefit for the plant, e.g. Willow trees (genus Salix) are attacked by several gall-forming herbivores. The high concentration of IAA in the larvae prompted us to examine the possibility that the larvae synthesize IAA. The flow rate was 0.2 ml min−1. In some cases galling results in a net benefit for the plant, e.g. The observation that tZ concentrations were even lower in larvae that had escaped from galls (Fig. Working off-campus? Liquid chromatography and tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MS/MS) were used to analyse concentrations of endogenous cytokinins and the active auxin IAA in the gall‐inducing sawfly (Pontania sp.) One is the molted willow borer and the other is the willow borer. This notion is based on the fundamental tenet that IAA and CKs are critically involved in the formation and maintenance of insect‐induced galls. Later larvae leave the galls, fall to the ground and pupate. After overnight incubation, the soaking solution and living larvae were extracted together, and analysed by LC/MS/MS. This European species was first found in Canterbury in 1929. Biosynthetic pathway of the phytohormone auxin in insects and screening of its inhibitors. These larvae pupate in the early spring and the black with orange coloring, adults fly in April. The larvae that emerged after the eggs hatched promoted subsequent gall development. and you may need to create a new Wiley Online Library account. Levels of cyclin D transcripts in galls were similar to those in calli. However, it is still not clear whether the IAA detected is synthesized de novo in insects or derived from ingested plant tissue. The local event observed in Fig. The larvae in the late‐stage galls, which stopped proliferating and became very thin, contained only c. 10% as much tZ as found in early‐stage larvae. © Peter J. Bryant Leaf galls on Arroyo Willow, Salix lasiolepis - view from upper side of leaf. Slices of gall tissue that were each c. 2‐mm thick were fixed in an FAA solution (5% (v/v) formaldehyde, 50% (v/v) ethanol and 0.9 M acetic acid), dehydrated by passage through xylene and a graded ethanol series, and embedded in paraffin. In contrast, IAA was almost undetectable in larvae that had escaped from galls. Obscure mealybug; Vine mealybug ; Invertebrates (cont.) Shared weapons of blood- and plant-feeding insects: Surprising commonalities for manipulating hosts. The aqueous layer was mixed with 0.5 volumes of 0.8 M sodium citrate containing 1.2 M sodium chloride and 0.5 volumes of isopropanol. The gall is bean-shaped, starting off green but gradually turning red. The first known use of this name was in 1773. First‐strand DNA was synthesized using the RNA obtained after DNaseI treatment with a Takara PrimeScript RT‐PCR kit (Takara), according to the manufacturer's instructions. Willow Apple Gall Sawfly. gall found on Salix capraea (Goat Willow), Salix cinerea (Grey Willow) or Salix aurita (Eared Willow). These results clearly demonstrate that IAA and CKs actively transduce their hormone activities in galls. For the in vivo feeding experiments, several sawfly larvae (total mass of 3–4 mg) were briefly rinsed with sterile water, soaked in 5 μl of water containing 1–10 μg of [13C11,15N2] L‐Trp, and incubated at 25°C for 15 h under dim light (7–10 μmol m−2 s−1). other Potter Wasps. the nodules with the nitrogen-fixing rhizobia bacteria that form on the roots of legumes. In situ hybridization analysis of IAA function may reveal spatial regulation of IAA action in insect‐induced galls. Later, McCalla et al. Cytokinins Are Abundant and Widespread among Insect Species. Euura herbaceae is a species of sawfly belonging to the family Tenthredinidae (common sawflies). International Journal of Molecular Sciences. Both are very common in Michigan. Intense lignin staining (Fig. On the other hand, IAA in the larvae participates in the maintenance of gall development by promoting cell division and vascular development in cooperation with CKs. Feeding experiments demonstrated the ability of sawfly larvae to synthesize IAA from tryptophan. More recently, the use of gas chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry (GC/MS) has demonstrated high concentrations of IAA in the larvae of a tephritid fly (Mapes & Davies, 2001a) and the gelechiid caterpillar (Tooker & De Moraes, 2011), both of which induce galls on goldenrod (Solidago altissima) plants. Detection of cytokinins and auxin in plant tissues using histochemistry and immunocytochemistry. Studies of gall formation using a similar sawfly (Pontania pacifica)–willow (Salix alba) galling system native to North America indicated that the fluid from the glands induces gall formation (Hovanitz, 1959). Willow Gall Sawflies – Willow galls can be caused by willow leaf gall sawflies, Pontania pacifica. It is hairy and only found on the underside of the leaf. Click here to support NatureSpot by making a donation - small or large - your gift is very much appreciated. Given that gall induction generally involves abnormal cell division, enlargement and differentiation – all of which are processes regulated by certain phytohormones – several studies have focused on the role of plant growth regulators, such as auxins and cytokinins (CKs). In this study, we have successfully shown that both IAA‐ and CK‐responsive genes were clearly upregulated in growing galls compared with leaves. 7). Using MRM, [13C10,15N1]IAA was detected at the same retention time as authentic IAA (Fig. A comparative venomic fingerprinting approach reveals that galling and non-galling fig wasp species have different venom profiles. To eliminate the possibility that the conversion of Trp to IAA could be catalysed by bacteria introduced by contamination from the larval environments or experimental procedures, the larvae were rinsed briefly with sterile water and incubated under near‐sterile conditions in the presence of the antibiotics streptomycin and chloramphenicol. 2 Spruce pineapple gall. The mass spectrometer was operated in the multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) mode. Fairly common in Leicestershire and Rutland. The concentration of CKs was higher in gall tissues than in stem tissues on a weight‐per‐stem‐length basis. Sawfly larvae that have escaped from galls have only low concentrations of CKs, and soon pupate and spend the winter in soil (in autoclaved vermiculite in this study) until adult eclosion during spring (Yukawa & Masuda, 1996). 5) suggests that regulation of CK production in larvae may depend on their growth status. In contrast, IAA was present at a low concentration in the glands. The purified CK and IAA fractions were analysed using a 3200 QTrap LC/MS/MS device (AB Sciex, Foster City, CA, USA). To discriminate between IAA in the soaking solution and in larvae, the soaking solution was recovered from the incubation mixture and spiked with 0.1 ng of [13C6] IAA, and the remaining larvae were briefly washed with distilled water and spiked with 1 ng of [13C6] IAA. For in vitro feeding experiments, sawfly larvae that together weighed 3–4 mg were briefly rinsed with sterile water and soaked in 5 μl of water. In this study, we focused on the roles of auxins and CKs in gall induction on willow leaves parasitized by sawflies. The transcript levels of the analysed genes were standardized by comparison with levels of SjGAPDH transcript. 7, both AUX/IAA genes and a GH3 gene were upregulated in gall tissues relative to leaf tissues. The fluctuation of CK concentrations in larvae and conspicuously high CK concentrations in the glands of adult sawflies are both consistent with this proposal. The ability to block the conversion of Trp to IAA by incubating the solution at 99.9°C for 10 min (Fig. Dynamics of the concentration of IAA and some of its conjugates during the induction of somatic embryogenesis in After emerging and mating in the spring, the female inserts the eggs into the leaf tissue, where the galls and larvae begin to develop. × 250 mm, Shiseido, Tokyo, Japan). The possibility cannot be eliminated that the insects selectively accumulated food‐derived IAA. The larvae that escaped from the galls were either used for phytohormone analysis or placed onto autoclaved vermiculite in unglazed pots, which were wrapped with nylon fabric and partially buried in the ground. The adult sawfly measures approximately 4 mm in length and has a black body with yellow legs. Insect Gallers and Their Plant Hosts: From Omics Data to Systems Biology. The flow rate was 0.2 ml min−1. Alteration of free amino acid concentrations in insect galls induced by Andricus mukaigawae (Hymenoptera; Cynipidae). Fragments of CYCD3, AUX/IAA, GH3, type‐A RR, CKX, glutaraldehyde‐3‐phosphate dehydrogenase and actin genes were amplified by PCR, using the cDNA mixtures as templates, along with degenerate primers (Supporting Information Table S1). Galls are abnormal growths caused when another organism interferes with a plant’s cells. However, it has not been determined whether insects can synthesize phytohormones. Sawfly females insert eggs into young willow leaves, which form a gall at each egg location. Willow Leaf Gall Sawfly Pontania pacifica “The willow leaf gall sawfly is one of several similar species that cause nearly identical damage on willow throughout the United States. Within the 9 families of sawflies, we find some with unusual habits. Willow beaked-gall midge, Mayetiola rigidae, causes infested shoot tips to swell and the nearby leaves to drop, leaving a twig gall that may have a point, resembling a beak.

Although no increase in size was noted in mid‐stage galls, the fresh inner tissues continue to grow extensively. Identification of an aldehyde oxidase involved in indole-3-acetic acid synthesis in The collected galls were maintained at ambient temperature in a container with wet paper towels to avoid desiccation. The larvae were incubated overnight with a small amount of water as before, except that no [13C11,15N2] Trp was added. High levels of galling are rarely sustained for more than a … Blister gall mites ; Leaf beetles. Leaf sections from S. japonica seedlings grown in a growth chamber at 25°C under continuous light (50 μmol m−2 s−1) were placed on woody‐plant medium (Lloyd & McCown, 1981) solidified with 1% agar and supplemented with 0.02 mg l−1 of 1‐naphthaleneacetic acid and 0.5 mg l−1 of 6‐benzyladenine. Some studies showed that enhanced biosynthesis of IAA in plant tissues transformed by Agrobacterium tumefaciens or with IAA biosynthetic genes did not elevate IAA concentrations despite the altered phenotypes in these plants, which resulted from enhanced auxin signal transduction (Wyndaele et al., 1985; Ishikawa et al., 1988; Sitbon et al., 1991). S2 Production of IAA by sawfly larvae, using L‐Trp as a biosynthetic precursor under near‐sterile conditions. The endogenous concentrations of IAA in normal leaves, gall tissues and the larvae inside galls were compared. and other plant materials were collected from naturally growing Shiba willow trees (Salix japonica Thunb.) Its common name, "sawfly", derives from the saw-like ovipositor that is used for egg-laying, in which a female makes a slit in either a stem or plant leaf to deposit the eggs. Although many reports have suggested important roles of IAA and CKs in gall formation, none of them have demonstrated that hormonal signalling is enhanced in gall tissues. Annals of the Entomological Society of America. All analytical methods used were slightly modified from those described by Kojima et al. The Willow sawfly, for example, defoliates willows, while several kinds of pine sawflies focus their feeding on pines. It is worth bearing in mind that the fluid from the glands is placed only once on the gall‐induction site of leaves, unlike the larvae, which could continuously produce and secrete phytohormones. Euura pedunculi larvae feed on eared willow, goat willow and its hybrid with tea-leaved willow. 4a). The suborder name "Symphyta" derives from the Greek word symphyton, meaning "grown together", referring to the group's distinctive lack of a wasp waist between prostomium and peristomium. It has also never been established that phytohormones function in gall tissues. Of the four CKs analysed, tZ was the predominant CK both in gall and larval tissues, and concentrations of tZ were >1000 times higher in early‐stage larvae than in control leaves. silk gland The only known locality for this sawfly in Arizona is in the inner basin of the San Francisco Peaks, at 3,100–3,450 m above sea level. Morphometric analysis of young petiole galls on the narrow-leaf cottonwood, Populus angustifolia, by the sugarbeet root aphid, Pemphigus betae. Gall-Inducing Parasites: Convergent and Conserved Strategies of Plant Manipulation by Insects and Nematodes. Willow leaf sawfly damage is easily recognized by the fleshy galls that develop at the spot where the female injects her eggs into the leaves. Poplar and willow borer; Psyllids; Roundheaded borers. The table below lists some of the more common North American sawflies that might present problems in the garden or landscape, and their host plants. The ability to induce galls on plants has evolved independently in many insect orders, but the adaptive significance and evolutionary consequences of gall induction are still largely unknown. Exogenous phytohormones and the induction of plant galls by insects. © Peter J. Bryant Leaf galls on Arroyo Willow, Salix lasiolepis - view from lower side of leaf. After incubation of the solution at −20°C for 1 h, RNA was recovered by centrifugation at 10 000 g for 25 min at 4°C. Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry 22 State House Station 18 Elkins Lane Augusta, ME 04333 More Locations. 3). A couple of larvae, collectively weighing 3–4 mg, were incubated in 5 μl of water in a microcentrifuge tube at 25°C for 15 h under dim light (7–10 μmol m−2 s−1). Moreover, several studies identified the active auxin IAA in gall‐inducing insects (Link et al., 1940; Hopp, 1955; Maxwell & Painter, 1962; Hori & Endo, 1977; Hori, 1992). European Corn Borer (Ostrinia nubilalis) Induced Responses Enhance Susceptibility in Maize. We assayed concentrations of IAA and CKs in the glands, the contents of which are deposited together with an egg at the site of oviposition in leaves to initiate gall formation (McCalla et al., 1962) (Fig. The GH3 genes encode enzymes that convert IAA to its amino acid conjugates and their expression is feed‐forward regulated by IAA (Staswick et al., 2005). Callus‐like nutritive pith tissue within the gall (Fig. This result suggests that the regulation of the pathways responsible for biosynthesis of these phytohormones depends on the physiological condition of the larvae. Coloured circles = NatureSpot records: 2020+ | 2015-2019 | pre-2015, Bagworth Heath CP, plantations near carpark, Leicestershire Amphibian & Reptile Network, Market Bosworth & District Natural History Society, Natural History Section, Leicester Literary & Philosophical Society, Leicestershire & Rutland Swift Partnership. All extracts (200–800 μl) were passed through filter paper (No. C by Yukawa & Masuda (1996), initiates gall induction by oviposition. The glands contained an extraordinarily high concentration of trans‐zeatin riboside (tZR), an immediate precursor of the bioactive tZ. It is highly probable that the two unidentified adenine derivatives are tZR and iPR, especially given that we also detected uric acid, uridine and glutamic acid as the major components of extracts from the glands (data not shown). Collectively, these studies over the past six decades suggested the possibility that the larvae inside the gall are a source of IAA. Given that the IAA was present at a concentration equivalent to 0.25 ng per larva, it appears that the IAA produced by larvae is easily secreted into the larval surroundings. 5/2/10. Red gall pigmentation: cytokinin stimulation is not everything. Pontania californica. This might support initial gall development for some time until the hatched larvae are able to provide sufficient stimuli for further gall development. To our knowledge, this is the first evidence of IAA synthesis by insects. These insects are stout wasps with broad waists, either black (males) or brown (females). The diameters of early‐stage galls increase continuously. The callus‐like tissue of the inner part of the galls appears to grow extensively to replenish tissue in response to larval ingestion. Learn more. We incubated 1 μg of [13C11,15N2] L‐Trp in 5 μl of soaking solution at 25°C for 15 h. To inactivate enzymes, soaking solution was incubated at 99.9°C for 10 min before feeding [13C11,15N2] L‐Trp. This might be attributable to the low activities of the riboside‐type CKs in the Xanthium leaf disc assay (Osborne & McCalla, 1961) used by McCalla et al. Both quadrupoles were set at unit resolution. Elution by varying the relative concentrations of solvents A (0.1% (v/v) acetic acid in water) and B (0.1% (v/v) acetic acid in methanol) involved 1 min of isocratic elution with 20% B, a linear gradient from 20% B to 30% B over the next 3 min, a linear gradient from 30% B to 100% B over the next 6 min, and then a 10‐min isocratic elution with 100% B. The calli induced after incubation for c. 1 month at 25°C under continuous light (50 μmol m−2 s−1) were excised and subcultured on the same medium. Unlike the situation for IAA, gall tissue contained considerably higher concentrations of tZ than normal leaves, with concentrations in early‐stage galls c. 30‐fold higher than in leaves. All PCR primers were prepared for real‐time RT‐PCR based on the sequences deposited in Genbank (Table S1). The AUX/IAA genes are negative regulators of IAA signal transduction, and their transcription is induced by IAA signalling (Abel & Theologis, 1996). The first of these is that the site of gall induction sometimes differs from the feeding sites of gall‐inducing insects (Sopow et al., 2003; Matsukura et al., 2009). Enter your email address below and we will send you your username, If the address matches an existing account you will receive an email with instructions to retrieve your username, Concentration of cytokinins (CKs) in control, Concentration of IAA and cytokinins (CKs) in glands of sawfly (, Transcript levels of IAA‐ and cytokinin (CK)‐responsive genes in gall and leaf tissues. Transcriptome profile of cup-shaped galls in Litsea acuminata leaves. The ability to induce galls on plants has evolved independently in many insect orders, but the adaptive significance and evolutionary consequences of gall induction are still largely unknown. Based on bioassay results that indicated low CK activity in the gland extract (< 0.004 μg kinetin equivalent per gland), McCalla et al. Although it is difficult at the moment to obtain direct evidence that IAA and CKs produced by sawflies are truly involved in gall formation, identification of biosynthetic enzyme genes, either from the insect genome or from the genome(s) of a bacterial symbiont(s), might allow us to specifically manipulate hormonal syntheses in sawflies. Poplar borer ; … The gall is generally pea-shaped, starting green but becoming red as it matures. Recently, the same group demonstrated that the production of CKs by leaf‐mining insects was dependent on bacterial symbionts (Kaiser et al., 2010), most likely Wolbachia.
