Desiccation-tolerant plants are able to survive for extended periods of time in the absence of water. The molecular understanding of the mechanisms used by these plants to resist droughts can be of great value for the improvement of tolerance of sensitive plants with agricultural interest. This understanding is especially relevant in an environment that tends to increase the number and intensity of droughts. The combination of certain microorganisms with drought-sensitive plants can improve their tolerance to water scarcity. One of these bacteria is Microbacterium sp. 3J1, an actinobacteria able to protect pepper plants from drought. In this study we describe the proteome of the interaction of Microbacteriumsp. 3J1 with pepper plants during droughts. We also compare this proteome with the proteome found in desiccation-tolerant plants. In addition, we studied the proteome of Microbacterium sp. 3J1 subjected to drought to analyze its contribution to the plant-microbe interaction. We describe those mechanisms shared by desiccation-tolerant plants and sensitive plants protected by microorganisms focusing on protection against oxidative stress, and production of compatible solutes, plant hormones, and other more specific proteins.
