A transgenic plant transformed by a Protein Kinase Stress-Related
Polypeptide (PKSRP) coding nucleic acid, wherein expression of the
nucleic acid sequence in the plant results in increased tolerance to
environmental stress as compared to a wild type variety of the plant.
Also provided are agricultural products, including seeds, produced by the
transgenic plants. Also provided are isolated PKSRPs, and isolated
nucleic acid coding PKSRPs, and vectors and host cells containing the
