We have identified a novel rice gene, called RAB 21, which is induced when plants are subject to water-stress. This gene encodes a basic, glycine-rich protein (mol. wt 16,529) which has a duplicated domain structure. Immunoblots probed with antibodies raised against beta-galactosidase/RAB 21 fusion protein detect RAB 21 protein only in cytosolic cell fractions. RAB 21 mRNA and protein accumulate in rice embryos, leaves, roots and callus-derived suspension cells upon treatment with NaCl (200 mM… CONTINUE READING
