Rice ZFP15 Gene Encoding for a Novel C2H2-type Zinc Finger Protein Lacking DLN box, is Regulated by Spike Development but not by Abiotic Stresses


A novel C2H2-type zinc finger protein gene, ZFP15, was cloned from rice by RT-PCR approach. The ZFP15 gene encodes a protein of 144 amino acid residues with a predicted molecular mass of 15 kDa. The ZFP15 protein comprises two C2H2-type zinc finger domains, a putative nuclear localization signal (NLS) at its N-terminus but the DLN-box identified in all… (More)
