Mutated genes

Locus name Alias Hormone Mutated site Paper description
AT1G35670 CPK11/CDPK2 abscisic acid A sigle copy of T-DNA was inserted into the genome of the cpk11-2 mutant,generating a 39-bp deletion from 320to 358bp downstream of the translation start coden. Encodes a Ca(2+)-dependent, calmodulin-independent protein kinase that is rapidly induced by drought and high-salt stress but not by low-temperature stress or heat stress.
