Ion homeostasis is maintained in plant cells by specialized transporters. However, functional studies on Mn transporters in apple trees have not been reported. MdMTP11.1, which encodes a putative Mn-MTP transporter in Malus domestica, was expressed highly in leaves and induced by Mn stress. Subcellular localization analysis of the MdMTP11.1-GFP fusion protein indicated that MdMTP11.1 was targeted to the Golgi. Meanwhile, overexpression of MdMTP11.1 in Arabidopsis thaliana conferred increased resistance to plants under toxic Mn levels, as evidenced by increased biomass of whole plant and length of primary root. Analysis of Mn bioaccumulation indicated that overexpression of MdMTP11.1 effectively reduced the content of Mn in every subcellular component and chemical forms when the plants were subjected with Mn stress. The majority of Mn of action were bound to cell wall and combined with un-dissolved phosphate. Besides, contents of malondialdehyde (MDA), proline and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) were significantly lower, while content of chlorophyll and activities of CAT, SOD, POD and APX were significantly higher in MdMTP11.1-over-expressing plants compared with that in wild type plants under Mn stress. Taken together, these results suggest that MdMTP11.1 is a Mn specific transporter localized to the Golgi can maintain the phenotype, reduce the Mn accumulation and alleviate damage of oxidative stress, conferring the positive role of Mn tolerance.
