Abstract: A gene <i style="">OsZnI</i> encoding Cys3/His1-type zinc finger protein was isolated from the water stress-induced cDNA library of rice (<i style="">Oryza sativa</i>) <i>cv</i>. N-22, an early maturing, deep-rooted, drought-tolerant genotype adapted to upland conditions. The <i style="">in-silico</i> analysis revealed an insert of 800 bp with an ORF of 663 nucleotides, encoding 221 amino acids. <i style="">OsZnI</i> had three distinct features — nuclear localization signal (NLS) present in Arg152-Arg168, Zn finger domain between 185-193 amino acids and 12 amino acids conserved domain in 71-82 amino acids homologous to LEA motif, and belonged to C-type family of Zn finger protein. <i style="">OsZnI</i> showed induced expression under water deficit stress.
