An Arabidopsis thaliana RD20 cDNA, which was isolated as one of drought-inducible genes, encodes a putative protein with a conserved EF-hand Ca2+-binding domain. The recombinant RD20 protein was shown to bind Ca2+. The transcription of RD20 gene was induced not only by drought but also by ABA and high salinity.

Keywords: Key words: ABA — Arabidopsis thaliana — Calcium — Drought-inducible genes — EF-hand protein.; The nucleotide sequence in this paper has been submitted to the DDBJ/EMBL GenBank under accession number AB039924.
