Depending on the number of hydrogen atoms that are replaced, the resulting compound is described as a primary, secondary or tertiary phosphate.

Plants also increase the efficiency of Pi use during Pi starvation via up-regulation of a wide array of PSI hydrolases that scavenge and recycle Pi from intra- and extracellular organic phosphorus P compounds Vance et al.
Thus, Arabidopsis plants cultivated on RNA as their sole source of exogenous Pi grow just as well as Pi-fertilized control plants, whereas a pdr1 mutant, which is defective in the induction of multiple PSI genes, requires Pi supplementation Ticconi and Abel, The induction of secreted ribonucleases RNasesnucleases, phosphodiesterases, and APases function in the systematic catabolism of soil-localized nucleic acids and their degradation products to mobilize Pi, which is made available for root uptake by high-affinity Pi transporters Fig.
Pi-starved plants also scavenge and conserve Pi by replacing their membrane phospholipids with amphipathic sulfolipids and galactolipids. Phosphatidic acid was suggested to serve as a second messenger that activates a protein kinase-mediated protein phosphorylation cascade that controls root growth.
A universal plant response to Pi deprivation is the up-regulation of intracellular vacuolar and secreted APases, enzymes that hydrolyze Pi from a broad and overlapping range of Pi monoesters with an acidic pH optimum Fig.
This is accompanied by marked reductions in levels of cytoplasmic P metabolites during extended Pi deprivation Duff et al. They exhibit a distinctive purple or pink color in solution that results from a charge transfer transition at about nm from the metal-coordinating Tyr to the metal ligand Fe III Tran et al.
However, mammalian PAPs expressed in macrophages and spleen cells after phagocytosis likely function in the generation of reactive oxygen species via a Fenton reaction involving the Fe II of the active site Tran et al.
Similarly, 1 several plant PAPs that exhibit significant APase activity also have alkaline peroxidase activity, and 2 overexpression of a soybean Glycine max PAP, GmPAP3, increased tolerance to oxidative damage imposed during salinity stress Li et al.
Mammalian and bacterial PAPs also function as phosphotyrosyl phosphatases, implying a role in signal transduction Tran et al. Identification and characterization of PSI PAPs is required to define the molecular mechanisms underlying this biochemical hallmark of the plant PSR, as well as to identify suitable targets for improving crop Pi acquisition.
PSI PAPs have been biochemically characterized from several species including tomato Solanum lycopersicumlupin Lupinus albusbean Phaseolus vulgaristobacco, and Arabidopsis Bozzo et al.
The Arabidopsis genome encodes 29 putative PAP isozymes whose transcriptional expression is dependent upon various developmental and environmental factors Tran et al.
A homozygous atpap26 T-DNA insertional mutant exhibited a large reduction in extractable shoot and root, and root-secreted APase activities, as well as impaired development when subjected to Pi deficiency Hurley et al.
Several proteomic studies subsequently documented a variety of intracellular and secreted proteins that are also controlled posttranscriptionally mainly at the level of protein accumulation in plants responding to changes in environmental Pi availability Fukuda et al.
AtPAP15 is the only member of the AtPAP family that has been shown to possess both APase and phytase activity, and appears to play an important role in mobilizing Pi from phytate reserves during seed or pollen germination Wang et al.
Since its expression is unresponsive to Pi deprivation and does not occur in root hair or epidermal cells, AtPAP15 does not appear to function in extracellular Pi scavenging. However, overexpression of AtPAP15 containing a carrot Daucus carota extracellular-targeting peptide significantly improved the growth and Pi use efficiency of transgenic soybean plants cultivated on sand containing phytate as their sole source of P Wang et al.
By contrast, transgenic plants overexpressing secreted phytases showed no advantage in their growth or Pi nutrition when cultivated in various agricultural soils Richardson, ; Tran et al.
This indicates that the bulk of soil organic P accessible to secreted PAPs may not be an effective substrate for transgenic plants that secrete phytase.
Decreased cytoplasmic Pi, a consequence of prolonged Pi starvation is met by a highly specific response that involves temporal and tissue-specific synthesis of several PSI tomato PAP isozymes Bozzo et al. The transient expression of 35S: Both animal and plant cells secrete ATP into the extracellular matrix, and extracellular ATP is essential for maintaining plant cell viability Tran et al.
Owing to microbial activity, the application of Pi fertilizers increases both the inorganic and organic P content of agricultural soils, thereby influencing the amount of organic P that is available for PAP hydrolysis Richardson, It is therefore of considerable interest to determine whether the efficiency of Pi fertilizer application can be improved by the overexpression of secreted PAPs such as AtPAP12 and AtPAP26 in genetically engineered crop plants.
This was attributed to LaSAP2 having several advantages in soil, including stability over a broad range of pH values and temperatures, broad substrate specificity, and a long half-life in soil suspension Wasaki et al. This has been correlated with the up-regulation of novel membrane channels needed to transport anions such as citrate and malate from root cells into the rhizosphere Diatloff et al.
Organic acid excretion results in the chelation of metal cations that immobilize Pi e. Organic acid excretion also: Overexpression of a maize PEPC gene increased organic acid synthesis and excretion in rice Fang et al.
Metabolic redundancy represents an essential component of the biochemical adaptations of plants and allows them to respond dynamically to their constantly changing and stressful environment. This is expected to inhibit C flux through the enzymes of classical glycolysis that are dependent upon adenylates or Pi as cosubstrates Fig.Annual Plant Reviews, Volume Phosphorus Metabolism in Plants is an important resource for plant geneticists, biochemists and physiologists, as well as horticultural and environmental research workers, advanced students of plant science and university lecturers in related disciplines.
