Systematic analysis of potato acid invertase genes reveals that a cold-responsive member, StvacINV1, regulates cold-induced sweetening of tubers



Systematic analysis of potato acid invertase genes reveals that a cold-responsive member, StvacINV1, regulates cold-induced sweetening of tubers



Molecular Genetics and Genomics 286(2): 109-118



Acid invertase is believed to play a regulatory role during plant developmental processes and to respond to environmental stimuli. The expression profiles of the entire acid invertase family are not yet available for potato. By searching existing databases, it was determined that there are at least six acid invertase genes in potato, including four cell-wall invertase genes and two vacuolar invertase genes. They were subjected to comparative expression profiling in various organs of potato plants and in stored tubers to exploit their potential functions. The results revealed that each gene exhibited a unique expression pattern, which differed in transcript abundance or showed organ-specific features, pointing to the possible involvement of individual genes in plant development. The vacuolar invertase gene StvacINV1 had the highest expression level among three genes detected in the potato tubers. Further storage experiments showed that StvacINV1 was strongly induced by low temperatures, which is consistent with glucose accumulation in cold-stored tubers. Suppression of StvacINV1 by the antisense transformation in potato confirmed that lower StvacINV1 transcript abundance in transgenic tubers is related to lower reducing sugar content and lighter chip color in comparison with the wild type. The evidence strongly suggests that StvacINV1 is a gene involved in regulation of cold-induced sweetening of potato tubers. This provides an avenue for studying the mechanism involved in the regulation of the cold-induced sweetening trait and for agronomic enhancement.
