Clubroot resistance has been introgressed into spring canola from various sources; however, the molecular basis of this using multiple resistances has not yet been investigated. We conducted a comparative transcriptomic study using resistance introgressed from rutabaga (RtR) and winter canola cv. ‘Mendel’ (MdR) and identified ~3500 upregulated genes of which 8–9% genes were involved in primary and secondary metabolic pathways. Treatment of the susceptible plants with trehalose suggested that the modulation of primary metabolism can increase resistance to clubroot. While comparing the DEGs from BnaA08 (RtR) and BnaA03 (MdR), we found that the gene CRF4 could be essential for mediating resistance. We also developed SSR markers from the upregulated genes for use in breeding.

Clubroot resistance in spring canola has been introgressed from different Brassica sources; however, molecular mechanism underlying this resistance, especially the involvement of long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs), is yet to be understood. We identified 464 differentially expressed (DE) lncRNAs from the roots of clubroot-resistant canola, carrying resistance on chromosome BnaA03, and susceptible canola lines challenged with Plasmodiophora brassicae pathotype 3. Pathway enrichment analysis showed that most of the target genes regulated by these DE lncRNAs belonged to plant–pathogen interaction and hormone signaling, as well as primary and secondary metabolic pathways. Comparative analysis of these lncRNAs with 530 previously reported DE lncRNAs, identified using resistance located on BnaA08, detected 12 lncRNAs that showed a similar trend of upregulation in both types of resistant lines; these …

Non-coding RNAs as emerging targets for crop improvement

Food security is affected by climate change, population growth, as well as abiotic and biotic stresses. Conventional and molecular marker assisted breeding and genetic engineering techniques have been employed extensively for improving resistance to biotic stress in crop plants. Advances in next-generation sequencing technologies have permitted the exploration and identification of parts of the genome that extend beyond the regions with protein coding potential. These non-coding regions of the genome are transcribed to generate many types of non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs). These ncRNAs are involved in the regulation of growth, development, and response to stresses at transcriptional and translational levels. ncRNAs, including long ncRNAs (lncRNAs), small RNAs and circular RNAs have been recognized as important regulators of gene expression in plants and have been suggested to play important roles …

Transcriptomic responses in spring canola carrying clubroot resistance introgressed from rutabaga or “Mendel”

Canola provides~ 15% of the total global vegetable oil supply and is an important crop contributing about $26.7 billion to Canada’s economy. Canola production has been threatened by clubroot disease caused by Plasmodiophora brassicae Woronin, which in extreme case can result complete crop failure. Development of clubroot resistant cultivars is one of the important ways of managing this disease. Clubroot resistance has been introgressed into spring canola from various sources of which the resistance introgressed from winter canola cv.‘Mendel’and rutabaga have been used most extensively in Canada; however, the molecular basis including comparative analysis of this resistance has not yet been studied. In this dissertation, I focused and compared thetranscriptomic response of these two resistances in canola in response to infection by P. brassicae.
