Mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) cascades play important roles in signal transduction of extracellular stimuli in eukaryotes. However, stimulatory signals for plant MAPKs have not been well elucidated. Here, a cDNA clone, termed Oryza sativa MAPK4 (OsMAPK4), from rice encoding a protein that showed homology with the eukaryotic MAPKs was isolated. According to the phylogenetic analysis, OsMAPK4 belongs to subgroup IV MAPK in plants. OsMAPK4 transcripts were expressed strongly in mature… CONTINUE READING
