OsCIPK10 is a member of CIPK genes (CIPKs,calcineurin B-like protein interacting protein kinases) in rice[1].

Annotated Information


  • Interestingly, five OsCIPK genes, OsCIPK1, OsCIPK2, OsCIPK10, OsCIPK11 and OsCIPK12, were transcriptionally up-regulated after bacterial blight infection[1][3].
  • OsCIPK10 was probably involved in the early events of rice disease response. OsCIPK10 could be upstream regulators in multiple stress-response pathways[3].

  • OsCIPK10 was induced by salinity and drought stress[1], it also induced by ABA and cold[3].
  • OsCIPK10 showed vegetative organ-preferred expression. Interestingly, expression of OsCIPK10 was antagonistic to that of OsCIPK18, suggesting the possibility of mutual regulation between them[2].
  • OsCIPK10 showed down-regulation under drought stress[2]. Under the high salinity conditions, OsCIPK10 was up-regulated in both roots and shoots[3].
  • During the cold treatment, the expressions of OsCIPK10 was up-regulated in leaves of treated plants. In the ABA-treated seedlings, OsCIPK10 was transcriptionally induced in leaves. During BB infection, OsCIPK10 was up regulated in leaves of treated plants, and moreover, OsCIPK10 was highly expressed 12 h after inoculation with PXO99[3].


OsCIPK10 belongs to subgroup III of OsCIPK family[2].

Knowledge Extension

  • Calcineurin B-like protein-interacting protein kinases(CIPKs) are a group of typical Ser/Thr protein kinases that mediate calcium signals. Some genes in the CIPK family of rice are involved in the responses to multiple abiotic stresses, whereas some genes of the family are responsive to specific stresses[1].
  • The calcineurin B-like protein–CBL-interacting protein kinase (CBL–CIPK) signaling pathway in plants is a Ca2+-related pathway that responds strongly to both abiotic and biotic environmental stimuli. The CBL-CIPK system shows variety, specificity, and complexity in response to different stresses, and the CBL–CIPK signaling pathway is regulated by complex mechanisms in plant cells[4].
  • As a plant-specific Ca2+ sensor relaying pathway, the CBL–CIPK pathway has some crosstalk with other signaling pathways. In addition, research has shown that there is crosstalk between the CBL–CIPK pathway and the low-K+ response pathway, the ABA signaling pathway, the nitrate sensing and signaling pathway, and others[4].
