Recently we reported on a plasma membrane tobacco protein (designated NtCBP4) that binds calmodulin. When overexpressed in transgenic plants, NtCBP4 confers Pb2+ hypersensitivity associated with enhanced accumulation of this toxic metal. To further investigate possible modulation of Pb2+ tolerance in plants, we prepared transgenic plants that express a truncated version of this protein (designated NtCBP4ΔC) from which its C-terminal, with the calmodulin-binding domain and part of the putative cyclic nucleotide-binding domain, was removed. In contrast to the phenotype of transgenic plants expressing the full-length gene, transgenic plants expressing the truncated gene showed improved tolerance to Pb2+, in addition to attenuated accumulation of this metal. Furthermore, disruption by T-DNA insertion mutagenesis of the Arabidopsis CNGC1 gene, which encodes a homologous protein, also conferred Pb2+ tolerance. We suggest that NtCBP4 and AtCNGC1 are components of a transport pathway responsible for Pb2+ entry into plant cells.
