OsCIPK07 is a member of CIPK genes (CIPKs,calcineurin B-like protein interacting protein kinases) in rice[1].

Annotated Information


  • OsCIPK4:OsCIPK7 are gene pairs[2]. Expression of OsCIPK07 in the internode is quite unique suggesting related developmental roles[3].

GO assignment(s): GO:0004672,GO:0004674, GO:0006468, GO:0005524, GO:0007165


  • OsCIPK07 was induced by salinity stress and ABA treatment[1].
  • In subgroup VII, OsCIPK04 showed down-regulation but expression of OsCIPK07 showed fluctuation such as downregulation at 2 and 4 h after drought stress and up-regulation

at 6 and 8 h[3].


OsCIPK4 and OsCIPK07 belong to subgroup VII of OsCIPK family[3].

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].
