The Rapid Alkalinization Factor (RALF) is a plant hormone peptide that inhibits proton transport causing alkalinization of the extracellular media. To detect the alkalinization response elicited by RALF peptides in root cells, Arabidopsis seedlings are carefully transferred to a gel containing the pH-sensitive indicator bromocresol purple, treated with the peptide and photographed after 30 min. Herein the protocol is optimized for evaluation of exogenous treatment, described in detail and expected results are presented.

Proton transport is induced by a myriad of signals and is used by plants to coordinate growth, defense and development. Some plant hormone peptides can affect proton transport, causing a strong alkalinization of the extracellular medium (Felix and Boller, 1995; Pearce et al., 2001a). The 5 kDa peptide hormone Rapid Alkalinization Factor (RALF), after being secreted, binds to its receptor FERONIA, and causes the phosphorylation of the plasma membrane H+-Adenosine triphosphatase 2, inhibiting proton transport and alkalinizing the extracellular media (Pearce et al., 2001b; Haruta et al., 2014).

Growth media containing the pH indicator bromocresol purple is an effective method to visualize alkalinization or acidification in the media around the roots. This method has been used previously to show that NaRALF is required for regulating root hair extracellular pH (Wu et al., 2007), and that roots of plants overexpressing AtRALF23 have reduced capacity to acidify the rhizosphere (Srivastava et al., 2009). Growth medium with the pH indicator bromocresol purple was also used by Masachis et al. (2016) to demonstrate that RALF homologs produced by fungal pathogens induced alkalinization of media around the roots of tomato plants.

We have optimized the pH indicator bromocresol purple protocol and using the improved protocol we were able to visualize the alkalinization effect around Arabidopsis roots after AtRALF1 treatment in wild type and mutant seedlings (Dressano et al., 2017). Here we demonstrate how this assay can provide qualitative information on the extracellular pH that surrounds Arabidopsis roots.

  1. Seed sterilization and germination
    To analyze the root media alkalinization, seedlings were grown on plates containing half-strength MS medium (see Recipes) for 9 days.
    1. Surface sterilize A. thaliana seeds in Eppendorf tubes using 1 ml sodium hypochlorite solution 50% (v/v) for 10 min followed by 5 washes using 1 ml sterile Milli-Q water each. Seeds are washed with the aid of a micropipette (1,000 µl) (Figures 1A).
    2. Stratify the sterilized seeds for 72 h at 4 °C in water and then drop in a line using a micropipette (10 µl) on a square plate dish containing half-strength MS medium (Figures 1B-1D).
    3. Seal the plates containing the seeds with clear plastic wrap.
    4. Incubate the plates vertically in a controlled environmental growth chamber at 22 ± 2 °C, 16 h light (150 μmol m-2 sec-1) and 8 h dark for 9 days (Figure 1E).

      Figure 1. Seed sterilization and seedling growth. A. A. thaliana seeds during the surface sterilization procedure with sodium hypochlorite solution 50% (v/v); B. Pipette tip (which has been cut and then autoclaved) containing stratified seeds; C. Stratified seeds being disposed in half-strength MS medium; D. Seeds aligned on a square Petri dish containing half-strength MS medium; F. Arabidopsis seedlings (9 days old) grown in the growth chamber.

  2. Gel containing the pH-sensitive indicator bromocresol purple
    1. Prepare gel containing the pH-sensitive indicator bromocresol purple
      1. Add 0.006% (w/v) of bromocresol purple free acid reagent grade (60 mg L-1); 1 mM of CaSO4 (172 mg L-1) in sterile distilled water. Adjust pH to 5.7 using KOH or HCl. Pour the solution into an Erlenmeyer.
      2. Add agarose (15 g L-1) into the Erlenmeyer and heat in the microwave until completely dissolved.
    2. Pour the melted gel into Petri dishes (150 x 20 mm), 50 ml per dish (approx. 0.4 cm thick), with the aid of a graduated cylinder (100 ml). The agarose gel is allowed to cool until solidified. (Figure 2).

The solution is heated in a microwave until agarose is completely dissolved; F. Gel containing bromocresol purple completely dissolved and ready to be poured. G. Gel being poured in a Petri dish. H. Plate containing the solidified gel and ready to receive the seedlings (top view). I. Lateral view of the plate shown in H. Gel should be about 0.4 cm thick and a dark yellow color is expected to allow detection of pH differences.

    3. Gently transfer groups of seedlings (6-8) at once onto each Petri dish containing the pH indicator bromocresol purple (pH 5.7) with tweezers (Figures 3A-3B; see Video 1).

      Video 1. Seedlings being transferred to Petri dish containing the pH indicator bromocresol purple

    4. Once placed in the gel pH-sensitive indicator bromocresol purple, only the roots of the seedling are treated with 10 µl AtRALF1 (10 μM solution) or water (10 µl as a control) (see Video 2).

      Video 2. Roots of Arabidopsis seedlings treated with AtRALF1 solution

    5. Capture images with a digital camera (Sony, Cyber-shot) 30 min after treatment.

Data analysis

  1. The data produced is qualitative, highly reproducible but seedlings have to be manipulated carefully. Wounds that may be unintentionally inflicted by handling itself are a signal that causes proton fluxes and may cause alkalinization.
  2. After 30 min, AtRALF1-treated seedlings show a purple color around the roots while water-treated control seedlings develop no color (Figures 3C-3D).
  3. Photographic record: the best results that we have obtained are using a white background and a source of white light from behind the plate. Good photographic records are the result of good equipment, photographer skills and light setup. Reducing the distance between the plate and the white background increases the detection of the color change in the gel. An example of this effect is shown in Figure 3F.

    Figure 3. Evaluation of root pH change on a gel containing bromocresol purple. A. Arabidopsis seedlings being selected to be transferred onto a gel containing the pH indicator. B. Seedlings being placed on top of the gel. C. Pair of 6-8 seedlings before AtRALF1 or water treatment. D. The same pair shown in C, 30 min after treatment. E. Pair of 6-8 seedlings before AtRALF1 or water treatment. F. The same pair shown in E, 30 min after treatment. Image was taken after reducing the distance between the plate and the white background. Scale bars = 1 cm.


  1. In-house produced 6xHis AtRALF1 recombinant peptide was obtained as described by do Canto et al. (2014).
  2. In our experience, the most critical points for reproducibility are: the thickness of the gel (0.4 cm) that facilitates imaging; the time of incubation with the peptide (30 min); maintaining intact (roots should not be touched/injured with forceps or in any way during handling); and a small volume of peptide solution for root treatment (10 μl).
  3. Recombinant AtRALF1 (7,631 g/mol) is dissolved in distilled water (7.631 μg/100 μl). The final concentration of the solution is 10 μM.


  1. Half-strength MS medium
    Note: Weigh all the chemicals used in weighing balance (± 0.0001). Adjust the pH of MS medium using a magnetic stirrer and a pH meter.
    1. Add 2.215 g L-1 MS salts without sucrose and vitamins (PhytoTechnology Laboratories), 10.0 g sucrose to 800 ml ddH2O, adjust pH to 5.7 using KOH
    2. Add Gellan Gum Powder (6 g L-1, PhytoTechnology Laboratories) and add up to 1 L with dH2O
    3. Autoclave for 15 min at 121 °C
    4. After autoclaving, pour the half-strength MS medium in square Petri dishes, 30 ml per plate, with the aid of a graduated cylinder (100 ml) in a laminar flow hood

    50 ml of sterile distilled water

快速碱化因子(RALF)是一种植物激素肽,可抑制质子转运,导致细胞外培养基碱化。 为了检测由根细胞中的RALF肽引发的碱化反应,将拟南芥幼苗仔细转移至含有pH敏感指示剂溴甲酚紫紫的凝胶中,用肽处理并在30分钟后拍照。 在此,该方案针对外源性治疗的评估进行了优化,详细描述并呈现预期结果。

【背景】质子运输是由无数的信号引起的,并被植物用来协调增长,防御和发展。一些植物激素肽可以影响质子转运,引起细胞外基质强碱性化(Felix和Boller,1995; Pearce等人,2001a)。 5kDa肽激素快速碱化因子(RALF)在分泌后与其受体FERONIA结合,并导致质膜H + - 腺苷三磷酸酶2的磷酸化,抑制质子转运并碱化细胞外培养基(Pearce等人,2001b; Haruta等人,2014)。

含有pH指示剂溴甲酚紫的生长培养基是在根周围的培养基中观察碱化或酸化的有效方法。先前已经使用该方法来表明NaRALF是调节根毛细胞外pH所需的(Wu等人,2007),并且过表达AtRALF23的植物的根具有降低的将根际酸化的能力(Srivastava ,2009)。 Masachis等人也使用pH指示剂溴甲酚紫紫色的生长培养基。 (2016)证明由真菌病原体产生的RALF同源物诱导了番茄植物根周围的培养基的碱化。

我们已经优化了pH指示剂溴甲酚紫方案,并且使用改进的方案,我们能够在AtRALF1处理后在野生型和突变体幼苗中观察到拟南芥根部周围的碱化作用(Dressano等人, ,2017)。在这里,我们展示了这种分析方法如何提供围绕拟南芥根部的细胞外pH值的定性信息。

    3. 使用透明塑料包装密封包含种子的盘子。

  2. 含有pH敏感指示剂溴甲酚紫的凝胶
    1. 准备含有pH敏感指示剂溴甲酚紫的凝胶
      1. 加入0.006%(w / v)溴甲酚紫游离酸试剂级(60g L-1);在无菌蒸馏水中加入1mM CaSO 4(172g L -1)。使用KOH或HCl调节pH至5.7。将溶液倒入锥形瓶中。
      2. 将琼脂糖(15g L -1)加入锥形瓶中并在微波炉中加热直至完全溶解。
    2. 借助于量筒(100ml),将熔化的凝胶倒入培养皿(150×20mm),每皿50ml(约0.4cm厚)。使琼脂糖凝胶冷却直至凝固。 (图2)。
