Salinity is an important limiting factor in plant growth and development. We have cloned a catalytic subunit of the sugar beet protein kinase CK2 (BvCKA2) by functional expression in yeast of a NaCl-induced cDNA library. BvCKA2 was able to increase the yeast tolerance to NaCl and to functionally complement the cka1 cka2 yeast double mutant upon over-expression. Southern blot analysis indicated that, in sugar beet, the BCKA2 gene is a member of a multigene family. The mRNA levels of BvCKA2 were up-regulated in response to NaCl stress which suggests that protein kinase CK2 may be involved in the plant response to salt stress.
