The rice Os06g0493100 was reported as OsZFP6 in 2014 [1] by researchers from China.

Annotated Information

  • OsZFP6 is a putatively useful gene for developing crops with increased alkali and H2O2 tolerance.
  • OsZFP6 plays an important role in abiotic stress responses.[1]

Phenotypic analysis

  • When OsZFP6 was transformed into yeast, the transgenic yeast showed significantly increased resistance to NaHCO3 compared to the control. * Moreover, Arabidopsis transgenic plants overexpressing 'OsZFP6 were more tolerant to both NaHCO3 and H2O2 treatments.


  • OsZFP6 expression was increased by abiotic stress, including salt (NaCl), alkali (NaHCO 3 ) and H2O2 treatment

Subcellular localization

  • The OsZFP6 protein contains 305 amino acids and a conserved zinc finger domain and is localised to the nucleus.
