Identification of a drought responsive gene encoding a nuclear protein involved in drought and freezing stress tolerance in Arabidopsis


Plants have developed adaptive strategies to survive under different abiotic stressors. To identify new components involved in abiotic stress tolerance, we screened unannotated expressed sequence tags (ESTs) and evaluated their cold or drought response in Arabidopsis. We identified a drought response gene (DRG) encoding a 39.5-kDa polypeptide. This protein… (More)
