Mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) cascades are involved in biotic and abiotic stress responses. In plants, MAPKs are classified into four groups, designated A–D. Information about group C MAPKs is limited, and, in particular, no data from maize are available. In this article, we isolated a novel group C MAPK gene, ZmMPK7, from Zea mays. Exogenous(More)
Mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) cascades are universal signal transduction modules in eukaryotes. Plant MAPK cascades are complicated networks and play vital roles in signal transduction induced by biotic and abiotic stresses. In this paper, expression patterns of MAPKs in maize roots treated with low-temperature, osmotic stresses, wounding, plant(More)
According to the conserved motifs of plant protein phosphatase 2C gene, degenerate oligonucleotides were designed. A full cDNA sequence of PP2C gene from Zea mays L. roots was cloned by RT-PCR. It was named ZmPP2C and had 936 bp. Southern blot showed that the ZmPP2C gene was a low copy in the Zea mays genome, and there was a small PP2C gene family. Northern(More)
