The PSC Logo
新しい PSC の出発に際して作成したロゴマーク。緑は植物、青は水と地球を意味する。
中央に、「P」「S」「C」をもとに無限大を表した。植物の無限の能力を引き出し、地球
規模問題の解決に貢献したいとの意図を込めている。
Green signifies plants and blue refers to water and the earth. The letters "P",
"S" and "C" at the center of the logo form an infinity sign. This logo reflects
our wish to exploit the infinite abilities of plants and to contribute solutions to
global issues.

to shortage of external sulfur source. SLIM1 has been firstly
identified as a key transcription factor that essentially contributes
to metabolic regulations necessary for plant adaptation to sulfur
deficiency. The cover shows the slim1 mutant which cannot
induce the expression of SULTR1;2 sulfate transporter under sulfur
deficient conditions.

he rapid increase in population accompanied by rapid industrialization as we enter the
21st century has caused imbalances in the supply of food and energy, leading many
to predict that a global crisis of food, energy and environment will occur around 2020.
Research and development based on plant science is thought to be extremely important
for solving these problems.
In 2000, RIKEN Plant Science Center started as one of the millennium projects in Japan.
In the second phase of research at the Center starting in 2005, we are conducting
projects aimed at improving plant production, both quantitatively and qualitatively. This

Looking for New Genes Related to Improving Plant Production
T
his research group examines Arabidopsis and crops for new genes having vital
functions related to improving plant production. We are also searching for genes
that are related to quantitative improvements in plants and are conducting studies
and technological development aimed at producing crops endowed with new
functions capable of minimizing the effects of environmental stresses and achieving
maximum productivity. In addition, we are exploring and analyzing genes involved
in environmental responses and morphogenesis, as well as regulatory factors and
signaling factors that regulate their expression. This group also analyzes gene
networks involved in inter- and intra-cellular communication and communication
with environmental stimuli. Using this information, we hope to develop highly
efficient methods of gene expression and gene transfer aimed at improving plant
functions. Based on our research findings in gene discovery we are developing
basic technologies that are instrumental in developing, through gene transfer, crops
capable of minimizing the effects of the environment to obtain maximum yields.

Effectively Utilizing Plant Resources
P
lants synthesize a variety of organic compounds through photosynthesis and
unique metabolic pathways. Numerous metabolic processes are involved
in plant productivity, such as an efficient photosynthetic capacity and effective
transport and storage of biosynthesized products. This research group conducts
research and development on production control aimed at effectively utilizing
plant resources that aid in the production of biomaterials and energy. We are
conducting studies to understand the systems involved in plant productivity, sink
function, and effective material transport, as well as R&D on techniques aimed at
productivity control. We hope to utilize the various genomic functions of model
plants and comparative studies on genomes as a foundation for the production of
more and better crops and trees.

Ken Matsuoka obtained his Ph.D. in
agricultural science from the Graduate School
of Agriculture, Nagoya University in 1991
(major: biochemistry). In graduate school, he
found that the propeptide of the sporamin
precursor functions as a vacuolar-targeting
signal. This finding is the first identification of
the vacuolar-targeting signal in plants. After
obtaining a position in the same university, he
continued to work on the vacuolar targeting in
plant cells. From 1996 to 1998, he was at the
University of California, Berkeley as a Visiting
Associate Research Biochemist and pursued
research on the mechanism of COPII transport
vesicles, which are involved in the protein
transport from the endoplasmic reticulum (ER)
to the Golgi apparatus. He joined the Plant
Science Center in October 2000 as the Head
of the Laboratory for Structural Construction.

Result of Research
● NPH3 and RPT2 are signal transducers, which are involved in the phototropic
response of A.thaliana seedlings. Our study indicated that the blue-light (BL)
photoreceptor, phot1, is necessary for the BL-dependent dephosphorylation
of NPH3 and the expressional regulation of RPT2 in seedlings under BL
conditions through post-transcriptional regulation.
● Our study indicated that controls of phytohormone auxin transport and
accumulation by phytochromes, and probably also by cryptochromes, may be
critical steps in regulation of hypocotyl growth in response to light.
● To understand how root growth direction is altered in response to
environmental stimuli, we haracterized the wav3 mutant, whose roots show
a shorter-pitch wavy growth pattern on inclined agar medium. Our results
indicated that WAV3 encodes an E3 ligase, which is involved in a signaling
pathway that regulates root bending in response to gravity.

● We identified several Class III U-box proteins that regulate the plant immunity
signaling pathway.
● We developed a novel proteome methodology to analyze the ubiquitinated
proteins and small molecular compounds that are important for the defense
by using genomics, proteomics and metabolomics approaches. We aim to
proteome in plants.
elucidate signaling network system for plant immunity by analyzing expression
patterns of defense related genes and their post transcriptional regulation, such
as protein modification. Understanding the molecular basis of disease resistance
mechanisms plants utilize in nature will provide new strategies to combat
pathogens.

We purified ubiquitinated proteins using the ubiqutin
affinity chromatography. These proteins were digested
with trypsin and analyze by MudPIT analysis. As the
trypsin digest leaves two glycine molecules on the
target proteins, the ubiquitinated sites can be easily
identified by LC-MS/MS. Ubiquitin(Ubi), Lysine(K),
