Increases in the plant hormone abscisic acid (ABA) initiate water-stress responses in plants. We present evidence that a transcript with homology to protein kinases is induced by ABA and dehydration in wheat. A 1.2-kilobase cDNA clone (PKABA1) was isolated from an ABA-treated wheat embryo cDNA library by screening the library with a probe developed by polymerase chain reaction amplification of serine/threonine protein kinase subdomains VIb to VIII. The deduced amino acid sequence of the PKABA1 clone contains the features of serine/threonine protein kinases, including homology with all 12 conserved regions of the catalytic domain. PKABA1 transcript levels are barely detectable in growing seedlings but are induced dramatically when plants are subjected to dehydration stress. The PKABA1 transcript can also be induced by supplying low concentrations of ABA, and coordinate increases in ABA levels and PKABA1 mRNA occur when seedlings are water-stressed. Identification of this ABA-inducible transcript with homology to protein kinases provides a basis for examining the role of protein phosphorylation in plant responses to dehydration.
