Mutated genes

Locus name Alias Hormone Mutated site Paper description
AT4G09570 CPK4/CDPK4 abscisic acid a tandem two-copy T-DNA insertion in the 5` untranslated region upstream of exon 1 of the CPK4 gene, generates an 11-bp deletion from -67 to -57 bp 5` upstream of the translation start codon. Encodes a member of Calcium Dependent Protein Kinase (CDPK) gene family.
