Common wheat is an allohexaploid species originating from a naturally occurring interspecific cross between tetraploid wheat and the diploid wild wheat Aegilops tauschii Coss. Artificial allopolyploidization can produce synthetic hexaploid wheat. However, synthetic triploid hybrids can show four types of hybrid growth abnormalities: types II and III hybrid necrosis, hybrid chlorosis, and severe growth abortion. Of these hybrid abnormalities, type II necrosis is induced by low temperature. Under low temperature, elongation of stems and expansion of new leaves is repressed in type II necrosis lines, which later exhibit necrotic symptoms. Here, we characterize type II necrosis in detail. Comparative transcriptome analysis showed that a number of defense-related genes were highly up-regulated in seedling leaves showing type II necrosis. Transmission electron microscopy revealed extensive cell death in the leaves under low temperature, accompanied by abundant generation of reactive oxygen species. In addition, down-regulation of cell cycle-related genes was observed in shoot apices of type II necrosis lines under low temperature. Quantitative reverse transcription (RT)-PCR and in situ hybridization showed repression of Histone H4 transcript accumulation in the shoot apical meristem (SAM) of type II necrosis lines. These results strongly suggest that an autoimmune response-like reaction and repression of cell division in the SAM are associated with the abnormal growth phenotype in type II necrosis lines.
