Mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) cascades play a remarkably crucial role in plants. It has been studied intensively in model plants Arabidopsis, tobacco and rice. However, the function of MAPKs in maize (Zea mays L.) has not been well documented. ZmSIMK1 (Zea mays salt-induced mitogen-activated protein kinase 1) is a previously identified MAPK gene in maize. In this research, we charactered ZmSIMK1 and showed that ZmSIMK1 was involved in Arabidopsis salt stress. The genomic organization… CONTINUE READING
