Enhancing the absorption and utilization of phosphorus by crops is an important aim for ensuring food security worldwide. However, the gene regulatory network underlying phosphorus use in foxtail millet remains unclear. In this study, the molecular mechanism underlying low-phosphorus (LP) responsiveness in foxtail millet was evaluated using a comparative transcriptome analysis. LP reduced the chlorophyll content in shoots, increased the anthocyanin content in roots, and up-regulated purple acid phosphatase and phytase activities as well as antioxidant systems (CAT, POD, and SOD). Finally, 13 differentially expressed genes related to LP response were identified and verified using transcriptomic data and qRT-PCR. Two gene co-expression network modules related to phosphorus responsiveness were positively correlated with POD, CAT, and PAPs. Of these, SiPHR1, functionally annotated as PHOSPHATE STARVATION RESPONSE 1, was identified as an MYB transcription factor related to phosphate responsiveness. SiPHR1 overexpression in Arabidopsis significantly modified the root architecture. LP stress caused cellular, physiological, and phenotypic changes in seedlings. SiPHR1 functioned as a positive regulator by activating downstream genes related to LP tolerance. These results improve our understanding of the molecular mechanism underlying responsiveness to LP stress, thereby laying a theoretical foundation for the genetic modification and breeding of new LP-tolerant foxtail millet varieties.
