Abstract: Stress associated proteins (SAPs) are a group of A20/AN1 zinc-finger domain-containing proteins which play regulatory roles in plant response to adverse stresses. Although many studies have elucidated the functions of plant SAPs during these processes, their action mechanisms have not been systematically summarized. In this review, we briefly summarized the structural characteristics and classification of plant SAPs, with a focus on elucidating their action mechanisms. Further, we summarized the research progress on their response to environmental stress, with the aim of enhancing our understanding of plant SAPs and providing a reference for future research.
