Changements métaboliques induits par une carence en glucose dans les pointes de racines de mais : caractérisation d'une endopeptidase et régulation de son expression par les sucres by James Franck( Book )

Seminal maize root tip has been used to follow the effects of sugar starvation on carbon metabolism. This work has shown that resppiratory decline is mainly controlled by the carbon supply for ATP-utilizing processes and not for respiration. During starvation, the metabolic processes induced by carbon deprivation can be reversed up until 4 days by exogenous sugar. After 4 days, the loss of homeostasis, by membrane structure degradation leads to cell death. Substitution of sugars by lipids and proteins to supply carbon substrates for biosynthetic and respiratory processes is associated with a coordinated response to the enzymic equipment. Hence, the decrease in enzymic activities related with sugar metabolism while beta-oxydation and proteolytic activities increase, is an argument to assess selectivity of degradation and synthesis of proteins during starvation. Effects of sugar starvation on nitrogen metabolism have shown that root cells respond to this new situation by storing nitrogen from degraded proteins in a non toxic form : asparagine. During starvation, endopeptidase and carboxypeptidase activities increase while aminopeptidase activities decrease. We have purified the protease responsible for the major part of endopeptidase activity during starvation. This monomeric serine protease has a molecular mass of 60 kDa and is strictly localized in vacuoles of root tissues. The enzyme expression is modulated at the level of transcription by endogenous sugar content. For the first time in higher plants, we give evidence for a phenomenom of catabolic repression as already largely described in yeast. Induction of such a protease in sugar starvation condition could contribute to the alimentation of respiration with carbon proteic substrates when the endogenous sugar content decreases

"James Franck (1882-1964) was one of the twentieth century's most respected scientists, known both for his contributions to physics and for his moral courage. During the 1920s, Franck was a prominent figure in the German physics community. His research into the structure of the atom earned him the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1925. After the Nazis seized power in 1933, Franck resigned his professorship at Gottingen in protest against anti-Jewish policies. He soon emigrated to the United States, where, at the University of Chicago, he began innovative research into photosynthesis. When the Second World War began, Franck was recruited for the Manhattan Project. With Enrico Fermi and Leo Szilard, he created a controlled nuclear chain reaction which led to the creation of a nuclear weapon. During the final months of the war, however, Franck grew concerned about the consequences of using such a weapon. He became the principal author of the celebrated "Franck Report," which urged Truman not to use the atomic bomb and warned that a nuclear arms race against the Soviet Union would be an inevitable result. After the War, Franck turned his attention back to photosynthesis; his discoveries influenced chemistry as well as physics."--Publisher
