Fourth, to combine parthenogenesis with the different forms of “omission of meiosis” in order to use it as a tool in plant breeding, e.g., for clonal seed production/apomixis. (1970). Apparently, parthenogenesis can act in an aneuploid context, although with early embryo arrest. Plant Cell doi: 10.1105/tpc.18.00518 [Epub ahead of print]. Endosperm cellularization defines an important developmental transition for embryo development. Studies in sexual model systems, particularly Arabidopsis, support that the release of egg cell repression and transcriptional silencing results in the initiation of embryo development. In addition, engineering parthenogenesis in sexual model species has been investigated via mutagenesis and gain-of-function strategies. Genetic separation of autonomous endosperm formation (AutE) from two other components of apomixis in Hieracium. doi: 10.1093/jxb/erw486, Wüst, S. E., Vijverberg, K., Schmidt, A., Weiss, M., Gheyselinck, J., Lohr, M., et al. Sci. Proc. There have been documented cases of parthenogenesis in sharks, for example: Blacktip, Hammerhead, and White-Spotted Bamboo sharks have been reported to reproduce with this method. Am. Interestingly, it was recently found that a wild-type rice BBM1 (Os-BBM1) transgene under an Arabidopsis egg-cell-specific promoter (DD45) was also able to initiate embryogenesis in rice egg cells without fertilization (Khanday et al., 2018). 22, 4804–4814. doi: 10.5962/bhl.title.5681. Successful embryo development depends on a third factor, the nutrition of the embryo. Notice of a plant which produces perfect seeds without any apparent action of pollen. Genetics 146, 859–869. Acta Biol. doi: 10.1007/s004970050084, Boniotti, M. B., and Gutierrez, C. (2001). (2017). Reduction of MET1 in the central cell is essential for the activation of FIS2 and thus for the FIS-PRC2. Curr. Why different taxa vary by several orders of magnitude in the frequency of parthenogenesis remains unknown. 65, 2667–2676. Active DNA demethylation in plant companion cells reinforces transposon methylation in gametes. (2011). doi: 10.1016/bs.ctdb.2015.06.005. New York, NY: McGraw-Hill. Transgenes of PsASGR-BBML were able to induce parthenogenesis in the tetraploid sexual relative P. glaucum, supporting their function in di-haploid eggs. These two genes were concomitantly exchanged with the chromosome 1 arm. 143, eds F. T. Bakker, L. W. Chatrou, B. Gravendeel, and P. B. Pelzer (Ruggell: Gantner Verlag), 101–116. 8, 266–272. Apart from demonstrating that apomeiosis, parthenogenesis, and also endosperm autonomy, were inherited independently from each other, these results established that parthenogenesis functions independently from endosperm autonomy and vice versa in dandelion. They are all females that lay eggs that hatch without being fertilized by a male. Parthenogenesis is a form of asexual reproduction in which an unfertilized egg develops into a new individual. Riechmann, J. L., and Meyerowitz, E. M. (1998). The female gametophyte is thus haploid (1n) and alternates with the diploid (2n) sporophytic generation after fertilization of the egg cell with a haploid male sperm cell (e.g., Niklas and Kutschera, 2010; Schmidt et al., 2015; Bowman et al., 2016). Crit. High-resolution physical mapping in Pennisetum squamulatum reveals extensive chromosomal heteromorphism of the genomic region associated with apomixis. Parthenogenesis occurs naturally in many plants, invertebrates, animals, vertebrates, as well as being potentially possible for humans. MEA is involved in the control of embryo growth in sexual species by repressing the maternal allele expression of the TF PHE1 (Köhler et al., 2003b). There are also genes that function more indirectly by increasing the capacity for embryogenesis, such as AGAMOUS-Like 15 (AGL15) and SOMATIC EMBYOGENESIS RECEPTOR KINASE 1 (SERK1). (2007) re-confirmed the existence of one locus for diplospory (D) and a separate locus for parthenogenesis and endosperm autonomy (F), and showed that spontaneous development (F) occurred in the presence as well as absence of D, although, with early embryo abortion in the meiotic context. The parthenogenesis is the best way of high rate of multiplication in certain insects, e.g., aphids. 38, 102–108. In apomictic Boechera, the maternal PHE-like allele indeed was expressed, indicating a reversion of the imprinting status of this gene. In haploid parthenogenesis, the haploid female gamete or even the haploid male gamete develops into an embryo. 379, 633–646. Ferris, P. J., and Goodenough, U. W. (1997). At that time, it became apparent that the modulation of chromatin structure played an important role in the regulatory decisions and gene expression during development, also in plants. Particularly genes that encode transcriptional regulators are activated in ZGA and chromatin assembly is modified, while the egg cell becomes primed to activate the translational machinery. Ecotopic expression of BABY BOOM triggers a conversion from vegetative to embryonic growth. Sterile haploids also were derived through parthenogenesis of reduced egg cells in rice and maize (Conner et al., 2017). Harnessing apomictic reproduction in grasses: what we have learned from Paspalum. doi: 10.1007/978-1-4020-8854-4_5. Plant Biol. 19, 436–450. Biol. Malecka, J. (2009). The ancestral developmental tool kit of land plants. The study also mentioned rare, spontaneous development of seeds by some of the di-haploid parthenogenetic plants, that germinated normally and grew-out into haploid plants up to flowering (Noyes and Wagner, 2014). Artificial parthenogenesis with frog eggs was first described by Loeb in 1900, and first described in mammalian eggs by Pincus in 1936. Summary of the different forms of embryogenesis in plants, showing the embryo and endosperm originated from a mature embryo sac (A,B) or the embryo ectopically (C,D) after sexual (A) or asexual (B–D) reproduction, with orange indicating the sexual process, blue the asexual or apomictic process, pink apomictic reproduction with fertilization of the central cell, and N = chromosome set after reduction division: (A) zygotic embryogenesis, involving chromosome reduction (N) and gamete fusion (N+N for the embryo, 2N+N for the endosperm), (B) apomictic embryogenesis, occurring in the ovule, either gametophytic apomixis in which an embryo sac arises from an unreduced megaspore (diplospory) or sporophytic cell of the ovule, usually adjacent to a sexually derived spore or developing embryo sac (apospory), and parthenogenetic (spontaneous) embryo development and autonomous (spontaneous) or pseudogamous (after fertilization of the central cell) endosperm formation, or sporophytic apomixis in which the embryo arises directly from a sporophytic cell of the ovule, often as polyembryony and alongside a sexually derived embryo and endosperm (C) somatic/sporophytic embryogenesis, involving ectopic embryo development from sporophytic cells, and (D) gametophytic embryogenesis, idem from a gametophytic cell. Plant Reprod. Until the recent findings of PsASGR-BBML and RKD-TFs, a candidate for parthenogenesis in plants mentioned in literature was the FIS-PRC2 gene MSI1 (Köhler et al., 2003a; Guitton and Berger, 2005; section “Egg Cell Arrest and the Trigger for Embryogenesis”). ASGR, apospory-specific genomic region; DHs, doubled haploids; FIS, fertilization-independent seed; MZT, maternal-to-zygote transition; PRC2, polycomb repressive complex 2; TEs, transposable elements; TF, transcription factor; ZGA, zygotic genome activation. The polycomb group protein regulatory network. BBM genes along with AINTEGUMENTA (ANT) and PLETHORA (PLT) genes belong to the AINTEGUMENTA-Like (AIL) subclade within the eudicotANT (euANT) class of AP2/ERF DNA-binding domain genes, all of which function during embryogenesis (Horstman et al., 2014). Jullien, P. E., Mosquna, A., Ingouff, M., Sakata, T., Ohad, N., and Berger, F. (2008). Parthenogenesis usually occurs in combination with a mechanism that keeps or restores the diploid chromosome number, since haploid offspring are usually less fit or non-viable in nature. They are the most resistant to unfavourable conditions of environment, and are able, by a process of parthenogenesis, to give rise to ordinary, indifferent forms again, which can repopulate the gnat. Parthenogenesis and parthenocarpy are two such processes that results in fruits and individuals from unfertilized ovules or eggs prior to fertilization. By Geoffrey Migiro on October 14 2019 in Environment. Subsequently, cell wall material is formed, likely representing a block to polyspermy. (2001). Genetics 165, 1521–1531. These processes might be necessary for obtaining totipotency in the zygote, but has to be confirmed. doi: 10.1104/pp.103.033969, PubMed Abstract | CrossRef Full Text | Google Scholar, Albertini, E. A., Porceddu, F., Ferranti, L., Reale, G., Barcaccia, B., Romano, B., et al. (1857). Mapping studies support the dominant monogenic/-locus inheritance of both, apomeiosis and parthenogenesis. More recently, Noyes and Wagner (2014) showed that in autonomously produced di-haploid offspring from a tetraploid synthetic apomict (genotype: Dddd/Ffff) with incomplete, c. 50% penetrance of diplospory, D segregated 1:1 and parthenogenesis (F) was present in all (genotypes: Dd/Ff and dd/Ff). It took another two decades to confirm that true parthenogenesis indeed exists in angiosperms, verified on the basis of careful observations in Antennaria alpina (Juel, 1898). Plant Physiol. Genome 45, 513–519. Triaeris stenaspis is a spider species belonging to the Oonopidae family. In most apomictic species, endosperm development is pseudogamous, requiring fertilization of the central cell, whereas in a minority of apomictic species, the endosperm develops autonomously. In the sexual model species Arabidopsis, central cell arrest requires control by the PRC2, an evolutionarily conserved complex that is involved in the suppression of development via the regulation of epigenetic modulation (reviewed by Mozgova and Hennig, 2015; Wang and Köhler, 2017).

On Parthenogenesis, or the Successive Production of Procreating Individuals From a Single Ovum. The authors proposed a model in which parthenogenesis in Boechera evolved via changes in epigenetic regulation of imprinted genes based on changes in DNA methylation (see Figure 3 in Kirioukhova et al., 2018).

The editor and reviewers' affiliations are the latest provided on their Loop research profiles and may not reflect their situation at the time of review. PsASGR-BBMLpromoter-GUS analysis provided evidence for the expression of parthenogenesis in the egg cells of P. glaucum, where GUS expression was observed from 1 day before anthesis and in the post-fertilization developing embryos. (2013). Haploid production in durum wheat by the interaction of Aegilops kotschyi cytoplasm and 1BL/1RS chromosomal interchange. Strasburger, E. (1877). 30, 41–52. The authors declare that the research was conducted in the absence of any commercial or financial relationships that could be construed as a potential conflict of interest. Similarly, the functioning of PsASGR-BBML in apomicts, and the maternal silencing of the related Os-BBM1 in sexual rice, may hint to a reduction of maternal silencing of BBM-Like in apomictic grasses. Plant germline formation: common concepts and developmental flexibility in sexual and asexual reproduction. It naturally occurs in a variety of plant and animal species, particularly in lower plants such as mosses and algae and species-rich invertebrate groups such as insects, nematodes, and crustaceans, but also in c. 10% of the fern and 1% of the flowering plant species, and as rare examples in vertebrates (Bell, 1982; Suomalainen et al., 1987; Asker and Jerling, 1992; Schön et al., 2009; Hand and Koltunow, 2014; Grusz, 2016). Somatic Embryogenesis in Recalcitrant Plants in Embryologenesis. 3, 1120–1123. (2002). It mainly occurs in animals such as lizards and insects such as bees, wasps, ants, aphids, rotifers, etc. Plant 6, 1018–1036. Parthenogenesis involves the development of embryos from unfertilized eggs. (1999). A bonnethead shark reproduced parthenogenetically in Nebraska at the Henry-Doorly Zoo. 0. Regeneration 4, 201–216. Although successful in particular species or genotypes, others can be completely recalcitrant to produce DHs. In apomictic parthenogenesis, common in plants, the diploid germ line cells (gametocytes) do not undergo meiosis to create gametes but rather undergo regular cell division, or mitosis; offspring are clones of the mother. Acad. Oxford: Oxford University Press. 76, 729–741. An aphid is a minute sap-sucking insect that belongs to the superfamily Aphidoidea. Plant Reprod. This first demonstration of parthenogenesis gene function opens the door for synthesizing apomixis in cereal crops once the capacity to produce unreduced gametes at high frequency is installed. Non-equivalent contributions of maternal and paternal genomes to early plant embryogenesis. Restoring endosperm development is, therefore, necessary for successful seed development via parthenogenesis. Embryological studies in Taraxacum palustre. Gametic embryogenesis and haploid technology as valuable support to plant breeding. Last, some genes are known to be involved in the suppression of embryogenesis, including the chromatin-helicase-DNA binding gene (CHD3/4)-Like chromatin remodeling factor encoded by PICKLE (PKL), genes of the PRC1 and -2 (see sections “Egg Cell Arrest and the Trigger for Embryogenesis” and “The FIS-PRC2 and RETINOBLASTOMA RELATED1”), and the HIGH-LEVEL EXPRESSION OF SUGAR-INDUCIBLE GENES VAL1 and VAL2. Acad. Rev. Soc. Therefore, they can be found near the equator in winter and the Mexican Gulf during summer. Agashe, B., Prasad, C. K., and Siddiqi, I. It occurs commonly among lower plants and invertebrate animals (particularly rotifers, aphids, ants, wasps, and bees) and rarely among higher vertebrates.

Juel, H. O. A komodo dragon known as Sungai laid eggs in 2005 at the London Zoo after being separated from male komodo dragons for over 2 years. Also in other modes of in vivo induced parthenogenesis, such as via pollination with irradiated pollen or triploid inducer lines that results in haploid embryo development in some species (Germanà, 2006), embryos need to be rescued and cultivated in vitro due to failure of the endosperm. doi: 10.1046/j.1365-2540.1999.00619.x, Tedeschi, F., Rizzo, P., Rutten, T., Altschmied, L., and Bäumlein, H. (2017). Plant Cell 11, 407–416. Control of somatic embryogenesis and embryo development by AP2 transcription factors. Later studies showed that the functional requirement of the FIS-PRC2 could be bypassed by increasing the maternal genome dosage in the endosperm (Kradolfer et al., 2013), and that the FIS-PRC2 functions in the repression of maternal alleles of paternally expressed imprinted genes (reviewed in Wang and Köhler, 2017). These were subject to later studies in Arabidospis (Köszegi et al., 2011; Tedeschi et al., 2017) and Marchantia polymorpha (Rövekamp et al., 2016; Koi et al., 2016) (see next paragraph). In higher plants, the female gametophyte (also embryo sac) is highly reduced. Together, the results showed that parthenogenesis apparently is an inherent property of the egg cell and not the surrounding tissue and is able to establish zygotic competence in the absence of fertilization. Nat. (1694). Ueber das Geschlecht der Pflanzen. Natural Parthenogenesis is a form of asexual reproduction in which growth and development of embryos occur without fertilization. The former, the expression of maternal alleles, may contribute to the differential expression of maternally and paternally inherited alleles in the early endosperm after fertilization, as is also the results of imprinted genes (Wang and Köhler, 2017). Zygotic genome activation occurs shortly after fertilization in maize. 1669, 17–34. Brahminy blind snakes are fossorial creatures that resemble earthworms. 140, 411–432.

Recently, the long-term studies in natural apomicts paid off by resolving the BABY BOOM-Like (BBML) gene in P. squamulatum as a candidate gene for parthenogenesis (Conner et al., 2015; next paragraph). Received: 15 November 2018; Accepted: 24 January 2019;Published: 19 February 2019. It is found naturally in plants like banana and can also be induced artificially using growth regulators. Evolution in the cycles of life. Boca Raton FL: CRC Press. Different PRC2s exist, with the one involved in seed development containing the fertilization independent seed (FIS)-class proteins: MEDEA (MEA) (Grossniklaus et al., 1998), FIS2 (Luo et al., 1999), FERTILIZATION-INDEPENDENT ENDOSPERM (FIE) (Ohad et al., 1999), and MULTICOPY SUPPRESSOR OF IRA1 (MSI1) (Köhler et al., 2003a). The head of the Daphnia pulex has 6 segments that are fused. In automictic parthenogenesis, or automixis, the offspring are half clones of … The recognition that some plant species are capable of asexual reproduction came only two decades after the universality of “the law of sexual reproduction” was established, realizing that this also holds for plants (c. 1830) (Nogler, 2007). This review aims to summarize the current knowledge on parthenogenesis, the possible gene candidates also outside the grasses, and the use of these genes in plant breeding protocols. The Epiperipatus imthurni can be found in Trinidad and Guyana. 0. Lost Sex: The Evolutionary Biology of Parthenogenesis. doi: 10.1016/j.devcel.2017.10.005, Anderson, S. N., Johnson, C. S., Jones, D. S., Conrad, L. J., Gou, X., Russell, S. D., et al. Berkeley CA: University of California Press. The independent inheritance of endosperm autonomy from parthenogenesis is also supported by other studies, e.g., in Hieracium, the factor AutE was found to function independently from apospory and parthenogenesis (Ogawa et al., 2013). doi: 10.1242/dev.077057, Hennig, L., Taranto, P., Walser, M., Schönrock, N., and Gruissem, W. (2003). They suggest that only a trigger is needed to release the repressive state and activate transcription and translation in order to initiate this. These efforts have started to pay off, particularly by the isolation of the PsASGR-BabyBoom-Like from apomictic Pennisetum, a gene proven to be transferable to and functional in sexual pearl millet, rice, and maize. Parthenocarpy is being increasingly used to produce seedless fruit varieties today because of … In rice and maize egg cells, TFs are also over-represented, as are genes involved in transcriptional regulation and nucleic acid binding (Anderson et al., 2013; Chen et al., 2017). The first documented case of a shark "virgin birth" was in Omaha, Nebraska in 2001. (1906). While parthenogenesis is common in insects, it is less common in fish and mammals. A comparative transcriptome analysis between egg cells and zygotes in maize shows ZGA to involve c. 10% of the genome (Chen et al., 2017). Rep. 8:10626. doi: 10.1038/s41598-018-27863-7. Arabidopsis MSI1 is required for epigenetic maintenance of reproductive development. Lines with downregulated expression showed large cells at the base of the archegonium, indicating that egg cell specification occurs on the bases of anatomy and position, however, in the absence of specific molecular markers (Rövekamp et al., 2016). J. Linn. In some parthenogenetic organisms of other kingdoms, such as insects, stimuli imparted to the egg cell during ovulation or egg-laying, or non-sperm-based signals, e.g., a change in ionic strength or pH, can trigger egg cell activation (Horner and Wolfner, 2008).
