Abstract

3',5'-cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) is finally recognized as an essential signaling molecule in plants where cAMP-dependent processes include responses to hormones and environmental stimuli. To better understand the role of 3',5'-cAMP at the systems level, we have undertaken a phosphoproteomic analysis to elucidate the cAMP-dependent response of tobacco BY-2 cells. These cells overexpress a molecular "sponge" that buffers free intracellular cAMP level. The results show that, firstly, in vivo cAMP dampening profoundly affects the plant kinome and notably mitogen-activated protein kinases, receptor-like kinases, and calcium-dependent protein kinases, thereby modulating the cellular responses at the systems level. Secondly, buffering cAMP levels also affects mRNA processing through the modulation of the phosphorylation status of several RNA-binding proteins with roles in splicing, including many serine and arginine-rich proteins. Thirdly, cAMP-dependent phosphorylation targets appear to be conserved among plant species. Taken together, these findings are consistent with an ancient role of cAMP in mRNA processing and cellular programming and suggest that unperturbed cellular cAMP levels are essential for cellular homeostasis and signaling in plant cells.
