Zinc finger proteins are transcription factors widely studied in eukaryotes,and play important roles in plant growth and development,and responses to stresses.In order to deeply understand the gene function of zinc finger protein in soybean,the full-length CDS sequence of GmZAT12 gene was cloned from Shangdou 1201,and the characteristics of coded protein by this gene was predicted by bioinformatics analysis.The subcellular localization of GmZAT12 protein was detected by the tobacco epidermal injection system, and the expression pattern of GmZAT12 gene in different tissues of soybean and abiotic stress was analyzed by Real-time PCR (qRT-PCR) technology. The results showed that GmZAT12 CDS contained 516 bp,encoding 171 amino acids and the molecular weight of the protein was 19.264 28 ku with a theoretical isoelectric point(pI)of 9.02.Its main components were random coils and α-helices and it contained 20 phosphorylation sites, mainly serine phosphorylation sites.Sequence analysis indicated that GmZAT12 possessed two conserved C2H2 zinc finger domains.The result of subcellular location indicated that GmZAT12 protein was localized in the nucleus.The results of qRT-PCR showed that CmZAT12 gene expressed mainly in roots,leaves and seeds of soybean,while low expression in flower and stem, and was induced by high temperature,low temperature,NaCl and ABA.The fact implied that this gene might be involved in abiotic stress signaling pathways.
