In vivo imaging revealed light-induced cycles in assimilate supply toward the ear/grain of barley (Hordeum vulgare) and wheat (Triticum aestivum). In silico modeling predicted that, in the two grain storage organs (the endosperm and embryo), the light-induced shift in solute influx does cause adjustment in metabolic flux without changes in pathway utilization patterns. The enveloping, leaf-like pericarp, in contrast, shows major shifts in flux distribution (starch metabolism, photosynthesis, remobilization, and tricarboxylic acid cycle activity) allow to refix 79% of the CO2 released by the endosperm and embryo, allowing the grain to achieve an extraordinary high carbon conversion efficiency of 95%. Shading experiments demonstrated that ears are autonomously able to raise the influx of solutes in response to light, but with little effect on the steady-state levels of metabolites or transcripts or on the pattern of sugar distribution within the grain. The finding suggests the presence of a mechanism(s) able to ensure metabolic homeostasis in the face of short-term environmental fluctuation. The proposed multicomponent modeling approach is informative for predicting the metabolic effects of either an altered level of incident light or a momentary change in the supply of sucrose. It is therefore of potential value for assessing the impact of either breeding and/or biotechnological interventions aimed at increasing grain yield.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Kartäusch, Ralf</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Radchuk, Volodymyr V</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Melkus, Gerd</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Kartäusch, Ralf</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Borisjuk, Ljudmilla</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Jakob, Peter M</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Melkus, Gerd</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Rolletschek, Hardy</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/36"/> <dc:contributor>Munz, Eberhard</dc:contributor> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2017-03-29T08:34:30Z</dc:date> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/36"/> <dc:creator>Jakob, Peter M</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Schreiber, Falk</dc:creator> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2017-03-29T08:34:30Z</dcterms:available> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:issued>2015-09-22</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:title>Metabolic architecture of the cereal grain and its relevance to maximize carbon use efficiency</dcterms:title> <dc:creator>Rolletschek, Hardy</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Radchuk, Volodymyr V</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Grafahrend-Belau, Eva</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Tschiersch, Henning</dc:creator> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:contributor>Schreiber, Falk</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Tschiersch, Henning</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/38192"/> <dc:contributor>Borisjuk, Ljudmilla</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Munz, Eberhard</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Grafahrend-Belau, Eva</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
