The SnRK2 gene family is a group of plant-specific protein kinases that has been implicated in ABA and abiotic stress signaling. We found 11 SnRK2s in maize, assigned names from ZmSnRK2.1 to ZmSnRK2.11 and cloned ten of them. By analyzing the gene structure of all the SnRK2s from Arabidopsis, rice, and maize, we found seven exons that were conserved in length among most of the SnRK2s. Although the C-terminus was divergent, we found seven conserved motifs. Of these, motif 1 was common to all of… Expand
Genome-wide identification, characterization, and expression analysis of SnRK2 family in Hevea brasiliensis
TLDR
HbSnRK identification and characterization provided further understanding on the role of ABA signal in the rubber tree as well as three subfamilies that correlate well with those of Arabidopsis sp. Expand
Cloning and characterization of SnRK2 subfamily II genes from Nicotiana tabacum
TLDR
Dynamic expression of NtSnRK2s in tobacco plants that were exposed to drought, salt, or cold stressors were characterised using quantitative real-time PCR, and it was revealed that the three genes showed similar patterns of transcription under abiotic stress responses. Expand
Genome-wide identification and characterization of the CsSnRK2 family in Camellia sinensis.
TLDR
Results showed that CsSnRK2s were differentially induced by salt, polyethylene glycol (PEG) and abscisic acid (ABA) stress, suggesting the complicated roles of Cs snrk2s in the ABA signal transduction pathway. Expand
Comprehensive Analysis of SnRK Gene Family and their Responses to Salt Stress in Eucalyptus grandis
TLDR
Genome-wide analyses and expression pattern analyses provided further understanding on the function of the SnRK family in the stress response to different environmental salt concentrations and suggested that the EgrSnK gene family underwent a purifying selection. Expand
Genome-wide identification and expression profiling of the SnRK2 gene family in Malus prunifolia.
TLDR
Under stress conditions, transcript levels for some family members were up-regulated in the leaves in response to drought, salinity, or ABA treatments, suggesting their possible roles in plant response to abiotic stress. Expand

Genomic Characterization and Expression Analysis of the SnRK Family Genes in Dendrobium officinale Kimura et Migo (Orchidaceae)
TLDR
The transcript levels of DoSnRK genes after drought, MeJA, and ABA treatments were analyzed by quantitative real-time PCR and showed that most DoSnK genes could respond to these stresses. Expand
Genome-Wide Identification and Characterization of the GmSnRK2 Family in Soybean
TLDR
The results of RNA sequencing (RNA-Seq) data for different soybean tissues showed that GmSnRK2s exhibited spatio-temporally specific expression patterns during soybean growth and development that could respond to the treatments including salinity, ABA and strigolactones. Expand
Molecular evolution, characterization, and expression analysis of SnRK2 gene family in Pak-choi (Brassica rapa ssp. chinensis)
TLDR
It is found that this gene family was preferentially retained in Brassicas after the Brassica-Arabidopsis thaliana split and showed that BcSnRK2 group III genes were robustly induced by ABA treatments, suggesting that they may be global regulators that function at the intersection of multiple signaling pathways to play important roles in Pak-choi stress responses.
