The protoplasts assay constitutes a powerful tool that allows an easy uptake of active agents and a precise quantification of cell death induction in different populations. Our study showed that the basal level of cell death in our controls is low and stable throughout the length of our experiments (Danon et al., 2005; Pineau et al., 2013). In addition, the data obtained from the protoplast assay are applicable to intact seedlings, where it is possible to see differences in the intensity of necrotic lesions (Danon et al., 2006) even if those differences are not as easily and clearly quantifiable as with the protoplast assay.

[Abstract] The protoplasts assay constitutes a powerful tool that allows an easy uptake of active agents and a precise quantification of cell death induction in different populations. Our study showed that the basal level of cell death in our controls is low and stable throughout the length of our experiments (Danon et al., 2005; Pineau et al., 2013). In addition, the data obtained from the protoplast assay are applicable to intact seedlings, where it is possible to see differences in the intensity of necrotic lesions (Danon et al., 2006) even if those differences are not as easily and clearly quantifiable as with the protoplast assay.

Keywords: Protoplast(原生质体), Arabidopsis thaliana(拟南芥), Cell death(细胞死亡), Evans blue(伊万斯蓝)

Materials and Reagents

  1. Plant materials: Arabidopsis thaliana sterile seedlings grown in vitro from 1 to 3 weeks in the required conditions
  2. Gamborg B5 medium salt and vitamins (Duchefa Biochemie, catalog number: G0210)
  3. 2-(N-Morpholino) ethanesulfonic acid (MES)
  4. Mannitol
  5. Digestion enzymes
    1. Cellulase (Duchefa Biochemie, catalog number: C8001)
    2. Macerozyme (Duchefa Biochemie, catalog number: M8002)
  6. Culture medium (see Recipes)
  7. Digestion medium (see Recipes)
  8. W5A medium (see Recipes)
  9. 21% sucrose (see Recipes)
  10. 1% Evans blue (see Recipes)

Equipment

  1. Light microscope
  2. An appropriate slide (e.g. Malassez slide)
  3. Centrifuge for 15 ml and 50 ml Falcon tubes
  4. Sterile pipette
  5. Filter (0.45 µm)
  6. Hemocytometer (VWR International, catalog number: 631-0975)
  7. Cell dissociation sieve (100 µm) (Sigma-Aldrich, catalog number: CD1-1KT) sieve mounted on a sterile 150 ml beaker
  8. Micropore tape (VWR International, catalog number: 115-8172)

Procedure

  1. Protoplast extraction
    1.  Harvest whole young seedlings with sterile forceps and put them in a sterile Petri plate.
    2. Cover the leaves with the digestion solution (~15 ml for a 10 cm round plate).
    3. Close the plates with micropore tape and let digest at room temperature in the dark, overnight (~16 h).
    4. Separate the protoplasts from the seedlings by pipetting and releasing delicately the medium using a 3 ml sterile pipette.
    5. Filter the medium containing the protoplasts with a sieve of 100 µm, mounted on a sterile 150 ml beaker.
    6. Transfer the content of the beaker in a sterile 15 ml tube.
    7. Centrifuge 5 min at 180 x g at room temperature, eliminate the supernatant and resuspend the pellet in 4 ml of W5A medium.
    8. Very slowly deposit the protoplasts on 8 ml of 21% sucrose using a 3 ml sterile pipette (use a 50 ml tube if you have a lot of material, and a 15 ml tube otherwise).
    9. Centrifuge 13 min, 720 x g at room temperature.
    10. Carefully harvest the living protoplast at the surface of the sucrose solution (thin cushion, Figure 1) using a 3 ml sterile pipette and transfer them into a 15 ml sterile tube.

    11. Complete to 15 ml with W5A and calculate protoplast concentration on an aliquot using an appropriate slide (e.g. Malassez slide) and a light microscope (20x magnification).
    12. Centrifuge 5 min, at 180 x g at room temperature.
    13. Eliminate the supernatant, and resuspend the pellet in the appropriate volume of culture medium depending on the required concentration.

  2. Cell death determination
    1. Add 1 µl of 1% Evans blue to an aliquot of 25 µl of protoplast.
    2. Using light microscopy and an appropriate slide (e.g. Malassez slide), calculate the percentage of dead protoplasts that are stained with Evans Blue (blue protoplast/total protoplast, Figure 2).
