Abstract

In the present research, we have studied the inoculation effects of two root-associated plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) in rice and provide the pieces of evidence that the inoculation of the PGPR could potentially result in inducing the expression of the salt stress-related RAB18 plant gene under varying degrees of salinity stress. The sequenced putative gene of RAB18 of Oryza sativa in this study is 740 bp long, has a content of 44.4%, and a molecular weight of 492 102.00 Da. BLAST homology patterns revealed sequence similarity with the previously sequenced RAB in model plant species. We demonstrate the mode of action of this stress-related protein by performing comparative modeling of Q10RT8 (Os03g0146000 protein, homolog of the sequenced RAB18; O. sativa subsp. japonica) using energy minimization, molecular dynamic simulations, and molecular docking of a guanosine triphosphate (GTP) ligand with the protein. The docking results indicated that Ser21, Ala22, Lys25, Asp68, Ala70, Glu73, and Arg74 are important determinant residues for functional interaction with the GTP ligand. The present research contributes to the understanding of the PGPR inoculation in salinity stress. Additionally, it provides the layout of the understanding of the molecular interactions between RAB and GTP ligand
