Potassium (K) is the essential element for plant growth. It is one of the critical factors that determine crop yield, quality, and especially leaf development in tobacco. However, the molecular mechanism of potassium use efficiency (KUE), especially non-coding RNA, is still unknown. In this study, tobacco seedlings were employed, and their hydro-cultivation with K treatments of low and sufficient concentrations was engaged. Physiological analysis showed that low potassium treatment could promote malondialdehyde (MDA) accumulation and antioxidant enzyme activities such as peroxidase (POD), ascorbate-peroxidase (APX). After transcriptomic analysis, a total of 10,585 LncRNA transcripts were identified, and 242 of them were significantly differently expressed under potassium starvation. Furthermore, co-expression networks were constructed and generated 78 potential regulation modules in which coding gene and LncRNAs are involved and functional jointly. By further module-trait analysis and module membership (MM) ranking, nine modules, including 616 coding RNAs and 146 LncRNAs, showed a high correlation with K treatments, and 20 hub K-responsive LncRNAs were finally predicted. Following gene ontology (GO) analysis, the results showed potassium starvation inducing the pathway of antioxidative stress which is consistent with the physiology result mentioned above. Simultaneously, a part of detected LncRNAs, such as MSTRG.6626.1, MSTRG.11330.1, and MSTRG.16041.1, were co-relating with a bench of MYB, C3H, and NFYC transcript factors in response to the stress. Overall, this research provided a set of LncRNAs that respond to K concentration from starvation and sufficient supply. Simultaneously, the regulation network and potential co-functioning genes were listed as well. This massive dataset would serve as an outstanding clue for further study in tobacco and other plant species for nutrient physiology and molecular regulation mechanism.
