A comprehensive review of stress signaling in plants using genomics and functional genomic approaches

Improving agricultural production and meeting the needs of a rapidly growing global population requires crop systems capable of overcoming environmental stresses. Understanding the role of different signaling components in plant stress regulation is vital to developing crops which can withstand abiotic and biotic stresses without loss of crop yield and productivity. Emphasizing genomics and functional genomic approaches, Protein Kinases and Stress Signaling in Plants is a comprehensive review of cutting-edge research on stress perception, signal transduction, and stress response generation.

Detailed chapters cover a broad range of topics central to improving agricultural production developing crop systems capable of overcoming environmental stresses to meet the needs of a rapidly growing global population. This book describes the field of protein kinases and stress signaling with a special emphasis on functional genomics. It presents a highly valuable contribution in the field of stress perception, signal transduction and generation of responses against one or multiple stress signals.

This timely resource:

  • Summarizes the role of various kinases involved in stress management 
  • Enumerates the role of TOR, GSK3-like kinase, SnRK kinases in different physiological conditions
  • Examines mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs) in different stresses
  • Describes the different aspects of calcium signaling under different stress conditions
  • Examines photo-activated kinases (PAPKs) in varying light conditions
  • Briefs the presence of tyrosine kinases in plants
  • Highlights the cellular functions of receptor]like protein kinases (RLKs)
  • Possible implication of these kinases in developing stress tolerant crops

Protein Kinases and Stress Signaling in Plants: Functional Genomic Perspective is an essential resource for researchers and students in the fields of plant molecular biology and signal transduction, plant responses to stress, plant cell signaling, plant protein kinases, plant biotechnology, transgenic plants and stress biology.
