Participation of the JIN1/MYC2 transcription factor in the induction of salt resistance of arabidopsis plants by the action of exogenous hydrogen sulfide

SUMMARY. The transcription factor JIN1/MYC2, considered key in jasmonate signaling, is also involved in the transduction of signals from abscisic acid and, probably, effects of other mediators involved in formation of adaptive responses of plants. Using jin1 mutants of Arabidopsis, its possible participation in the implementation of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) protective effects under salt stress was investigated. Treatment of wild-type (Col-0) Arabidopsis plants with the hydrogen sulfide donor (50 M NaHS) caused an increase in their salt resistance, reflecting in the decrease in oxidative damage, the decrease in water deficiency, and the maintenance of pool of photosynthetic pigments under the action of 150 mM NaCl. Also, the treatment of Col-0 plants with NaHS prevented a stress-induced decrease in the activity of antioxidant enzymes superoxide dismutase and catalase and contributed to an increase in the activity of guaiacol peroxidase. In addition, in wild-type plants treated with the H2S donor, the content of proline in the leaves after salt stress was lower, and the sugars were higher than in untreated ones. Treatment of jin1 mutants did not contribute to an increase in their salt resistance and did not have a noticeable effect on the functioning of the protective systems studied. The results obtained suggest the involvement of the JIN1/MYC2 transcription factor in the implementation of the hydrogen sulfide effects and/or intermediaries of its signaling pathways involved in the formation of adaptive responses of plants to salt stress.
