Differential Activation of the Rice Sucrose Nonfermenting1–Related Protein Kinase2 Family by Hyperosmotic Stress and Abscisic Acid
To date, a large number of sequences of protein kinases that belong to the sucrose nonfermenting1–related protein kinase2 (SnRK2) family are found in databases. However, only limited numbers of theExpand

Abscisic acid-activated SNRK2 protein kinases function in the gene-regulation pathway of ABA signal transduction by phosphorylating ABA response element-binding factors.
The plant hormone abscisic acid (ABA) induces gene expression via the ABA-response element (ABRE) present in the promoters of ABA-regulated genes. A group of bZIP proteins have been identified asExpand

Evidence for social parasitism of early insect societies by Cretaceous rove beetles
The evolution of eusociality in ants and termites propelled both insect groups to their modern ecological dominance. Yet, eusociality also fostered the evolution of social parasitism—an adverseExpand
