Chloroplasts are semi-autonomous organelles governed by the precise coordination between the genomes of their own and the nucleus for functioning correctly in response to developmental and environmental cues. Under stressed conditions, various plastid-to-nucleus retrograde signals are generated to regulate the expression of a large number of nuclear genes for acclimation. Among these retrograde signaling pathways, the chloroplast protein GENOMES UNCOUPLED 1 (GUN1) is the first component identified. However, in addition to integrating aberrant physiological signals when chloroplasts are challenged by stresses such as photooxidative damage or the inhibition of plastid gene expression, GUN1 was also found to regulate other developmental processes such as flowering. Several partner proteins have been found to interact with GUN1 and facilitate its different regulatory functions. In this study, we report 15 possible interacting proteins identified through yeast two-hybrid (Y2H) screening, among which 11 showed positive interactions by pair-wise Y2H assay. Through the bimolecular fluorescence complementation assay in Arabidopsis protoplasts, two candidate proteins with chloroplast localization, DJC31 and HCF145, were confirmed to interact with GUN1 in planta. Genes for these GUN1-interacting proteins showed different fluctuations in the WT and gun1 mutant under norflurazon and lincomycin treatments. Our results provide novel clues for a better understanding of molecular mechanisms underlying GUN1-mediated regulations.
