When a pollen grain lands on a receptive flower's pistil, a complex dance leading to sexual reproduction begins. Liu et al. show some of the early steps that help to distinguish a compatible pollen grain from a random piece of dust. Normally, a stigmatic gatekeeper, the ANJEA-FERONIA receptor kinase complex, perceives signaling peptides produced by the stigma that drive the production of reactive oxygen species at the stigma papillae. Upon pollination, POLLEN COAT PROTEIN B-class peptides compete with those stigmatic peptides for binding to the stigmatic receptor kinase complex. The subsequent decline of stigmatic reactive oxygen species production allows hydration and opens the gates to pollen germination. Science , this issue p. [171][1] Sexual reproduction in angiosperms relies on precise communications between the pollen and pistil. The molecular mechanisms underlying these communications remain elusive. We established that in Arabidopsis , a stigmatic gatekeeper, the ANJEA-FERONIA (ANJ-FER) receptor kinase complex, perceives the RAPID ALKALINIZATION FACTOR peptides RALF23 and RALF33 to induce reactive oxygen species (ROS) production in the stigma papillae, whereas pollination reduces stigmatic ROS, allowing pollen hydration. Upon pollination, the POLLEN COAT PROTEIN B-class peptides (PCP-Bs) compete with RALF23/33 for binding to the ANJ-FER complex, leading to a decline of stigmatic ROS that facilitates pollen hydration. Our results elucidate a molecular gating mechanism in which distinct peptide classes from pollen compete with stigma peptides for interaction with a stigmatic receptor kinase complex, allowing the pollen to hydrate and germinate.

A research group from the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of the University of Valencia (UV), in coordination with the National Center for Biotechnology (CNB) of the CSIC, has studied the role of the interactions within the membrane of proteins of viral families Herpesviridae and Poxviridae in the control of programmed cell death. The work, published in Nature Communications, could have implications for the development of treatments for viral infection, as well as the prevention of cancers associated with them.
