Calcium signaling through protein kinases. The Arabidopsis calcium-dependent protein kinase gene family

Calcium signaling through protein kinases. The Arabidopsis calcium-dependent protein kinase gene family

Plant Physiology 129(2): 469-485

In plants, numerous Ca(2+)-stimulated protein kinase activities occur through calcium-dependent protein kinases (CDPKs). These novel calcium sensors are likely to be crucial mediators of responses to diverse endogenous and environmental cues. However, the precise biological function(s) of most CDPKs remains elusive. The Arabidopsis genome is predicted to encode 34 different CDPKs. In this Update, we analyze the Arabidopsis CDPK gene family and review the expression, regulation, and possible functions of plant CDPKs. By combining emerging cellular and genomic technologies with genetic and biochemical approaches, the characterization of Arabidopsis CDPKs provides a valuable opportunity to understand the plant calcium-signaling network.
