Arabinogalactan-proteins are a family of highly glycosylated hydroxyproline-rich glycoproteins widely distributed in the plant kingdom and mainly located at the cell surface. Because of their great heterogeneity, abundance and ubiquitous localization, arabinogalactan-proteins are thought to play important and different roles in plant growth and development. Many evidences also indicate a role of arabinogalactan-proteins during reproduction as well as in response to stress conditions. In the present work, we investigated the distribution of arabinogalactanproteins recognised by JIM8 antibody in pistils of Solanum lycopersicum cv Micro-Tom heat-stressed for 3 h at 42 C at different developmental stages (5 and 10 days before anthesis). Our results indicate that high temperature strongly affects the distribution and content of arabinogalactan-proteins in stigma and ovule, particularly in samples heat-stressed 5 days before anthesis. In stigmas, cells exhibited an altered pattern of JIM8-labelled AGPs, dispersed and less abundant. In ovules, the embryo sacsurrounding cells showed a clear reduction in the content of JIM8-labelled arabinogalactan proteins. These evidences suggest that heat stress affects both content and distribution of AGPs. Considering the role of AGPs in plant reproduction, from the acquisition of stigmatic receptivity to pollen guidance into the ovule, we can suppose that high temperature affects all these processes through the alteration of AGPs.
