A number of stressinduced proteins are produced in plants in response to drought stress, among which dehydrin is the most common one. Concerns on the highly conserved sequence and the large quantity expression of dehydrin have led to numerous significant findings about the biological role and the regulation of gene expression of the stressresponsive proteins. Recent progress of the dehydrin research is described.
