Plant survival depends on dynamic stress-response pathways in changing environments. To uncover pathway components, we screened an ethyl methanesulfonate-mutagenized transgenic line containing a stress-inducible luciferase construct and isolated a constitutive expression mutant. The mutant is the result of an amino acid substitution in the seventh subunit of the hetero-octameric conserved oligomeric Golgi (COG) complex of Arabidopsis thaliana. Complementation studies verified the Golgi localization of cog7, and stress tests established accelerated dark-induced carbon deprivation/senescence of the mutant compared with wild-type plants. Multiomics and biochemical analyses revealed accelerated induction of protein ubiquitination and autophagy, and a counterintuitive increased protein N-glycosylation in senescencing cog7 relative to wild-type. A revertant screen using the overexpressor (FOX)-hunting system established partial, but notable rescue of cog7 phenotypes by COG5 overexpression, and conversely premature senescence in reduced COG5 expressing lines. These findings identify COG-imposed Golgi functional integrity as a main player in ensuring cellular survival under energy-limiting conditions. © 2023.
