Plants respond to pathogen infection with the activation of the expression of pathogenesis-related genes, a response that involves Ca2+-regulated protein phosphorylation processes. We report here the isolation of a full-length complementary DNA encoding a calcium-dependent protein kinase (CPK) gene from maize. CPK genes occur in maize as members of a multigene family, but only one specific CPK gene, the ZmCPK10 gene here described, is transcriptionally activated in response to both fungal… CONTINUE READING
