Stress-associated proteins (SAPs) are a novel class of zinc finger proteins that extensively participate in abiotic stress responses. To date, no overall analysis and expression profiling of SAP genes in woody plants have been reported. Populus euphratica is distributed in desert regions and is extraordinarily adaptable to abiotic stresses. Thus, it is regarded as a promising candidate for studying abiotic stress resistance mechanisms of woody plants. In this study, 18 non-redundant SAP genes… CONTINUE READING
