Abstract

Plant roots secret a lot of peroxidases to counteract environmental influences. This protocol describes a way to extract root apoplastic wall fluid from Arabidopsis plants and to determine the peroxidase activity using guaiacol as substrate.

Keywords: Peroxidase (过氧化物酶), Root (根), Guaiacol (愈创木酚), Apoplastic fluid (质外体液流), Enzyme activity (酶活)

Materials and Reagents

  1. 10 mM Na+-PO4 (pH 6.0)
  2. Guaiacol
  3. Agar
  4. MES-K
  5. 1/4x modified Hoagland medium (see general growth protocol for recipes)
  6. Solid medium (see Recipes)

Equipment

  1. UV-vis Spectrometer
  2. Arabidopsis growth facility
  3. 15 ml Falcon tube

Procedure

  1. Plant growth
    Surface-sterilized Arabidopsis seeds are planted on ? x modified Hoagland medium (1 % agar, 5 mM MES-K, pH 6.0) solidified on 1 ml pipette tip box insert (the part with holes). After germination for 2-3 days under light, the boxes with young seedlings are floated in ? modified Hoagland liquid medium with 5 mM MES-K at pH 6.0, aerated by fish tank water pumps.
  2. Extraction of apoplastic wall fluid (AWF)
    1. Roots of Col seedlings (2.5 weeks old) are rinsed in de-ionized water and cut into 10 mM Na+-PO4 (pH 6.0).
    2. Vacuum for 5 min on ice, followed by slow release for infiltration.
    3. The roots are then dabbed onto filter paper to dry, measured on a balance and recorded as fresh weight.
    4. The roots are then put to the plunge barrel of a 5 ml syringe. The syringe barrel is placed in a 15 ml Falcon tube and centrifuged at 3,000 x g for 15 min at 4 °C. 
    5. The AWF is rescued from the tube bottom. Total volume is measured by pipetting. AWF is kept on ice.
  3. Total protein quantification
    Protein concentration measurement (Bradford micro assay) is done according to Bio-Rad reagent instruction.
    To set up a reaction, mix the following:
    Chemical Volume FW Stock conc.
    Guaiacol 880 μl 124.14; D=1.112 g/ml, 20 mM in 10 mM Na-PO4 pH 6.0
    AWF x μl
    Add 20-x μl 10 mM Na-PO4 (pH 6.0).
    Start the reaction by adding:
    H2O2 100 μl 34.01; 31.4% 0.3% (v/v)
    Total volume is adjusted to 1 ml.
    Reactions are followed spectrophotometrically at 470 nm for 2 min at room temperature. Extinction coefficient = 26.6/Mm/cm

    Figure 1.

Recipes

  1. Solid medium
    Add 1% agar, maintain the pH with 5 mM MES-K at pH 6.0
