Analysis and modeling of the integrative response of Medicago truncatula to nitrogen constraints.

Abstract : An integrative biology approach was conducted in Medicago truncatula for: (i) unraveling the coordinated regulation of NO3-, NH4+ and N(2) acquisition by legumes to fulfill the plant N demand; and (ii) modeling the emerging properties occurring at the whole plant level. Upon localized addition of a high level of mineral N, the three N acquisition pathways displayed similar systemic feedback repression to adjust N acquisition capacities to the plant N status. Genes associated to these responses were in contrast rather specific to the N source. Following an N deficit, NO3- fed plants maintained efficiently their N status through rapid functional and developmental up regulations while N(2) fed plants responded by long term plasticity of nodule development. Regulatory genes associated with various symbiotic stages were further identified. An ecophysiological model simulating relations between leaf area and roots N retrieval was developed and now furnishes an analysis grid to characterize a spontaneous or induced genetic variability for plant N nutrition.
