It is known to form complexes with different transition metals in vitro. Available evidence associates NA with translocation of Fe, and possibly other micronutrients, to and between different plant cells and tissues. To date, however, it is still extremely challenging to detect metal-ligand complexes in vivo because tissue disruption immediately changes the chemical environment and thereby the availability of binding partners. In order to overcome this limitation we used various Schizosaccharomyces pomhe strains expressing a plant NAS gene to study formation of metal-NA complexes in vivo. Tolerance, accumulation and competition data clearly indicated formation of Zn(u)-NA but not of CU(II)-NA complexes. Zn(II)-NA was then identified by X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS). About half of the cellular Zn was found to be bound by NA in NAS-expressing cells while no NA-like ligands were detected by XAS in control cells not expressing N AS. Given the high conservation of eukaryotic metal homeostasis components, these results strongly suggest the possible existence of Zn(u)-NA complexes also in planta. Reported observations implicating NA in plant Zn homeostasis would then indeed be attributable to direct interaction of Zn(II) with NA rather than only indirectly to perturbations in Fe metabolism. Re-evaluation of extended X-ray absorption fine structure (EXAFS) spectra for the Zn hyperaccumulator Th/asp; caerulescens showed that NA is as expected not a major storage ligand for Zn. Instead it is hypothesized to be involved in efficient translocation of Zn to above-ground tissues in hyperaccumulators.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Trampczynska, Aleksandra</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Meyer-Klaucke, Wolfram</dc:contributor> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>First publ. in: Metallomics 2 (2010), pp. 57-66</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dcterms:issued>2010</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:title>Nicotianamine forms complexes with Zn(II) in vivo</dcterms:title> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Clemens, Stephan</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Küpper, Hendrik</dc:creator> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2011-03-24T17:46:26Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Küpper, Hendrik</dc:contributor> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Meyer-Klaucke, Wolfram</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Schmidt, Holger</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Trampczynska, Aleksandra</dc:creator> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2011-03-24T17:46:26Z</dcterms:available> <dc:creator>Schmidt, Holger</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Clemens, Stephan</dc:creator> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
