Casein kinase 2 (CK2) is a ubiquitous, highly pleiotropic, constitutively active, and messenger-independent Ser/Thr protein kinase. It is found in two different forms: the heterotetrameric CK2, composed of two alpha catalytic subunits and two beta regulatory subunits, and the monomeric CK2 alpha, consisting of the alpha catalytic subunit. In the present study, we isolated barley cDNA clones of the CK2 alpha and beta subunit genes, designated HvCK2A and HvCK2B, respectively. Chromosome… CONTINUE READING
