Functional characterisation of Arabidopsis genes encoding members of the AP2/ERF transcription factor family (2005)

Abstract The EU Framework 5 REGIA (Regulatory Gene Initiative in Arabidopsis) Consortium,comprising 29 laboratories, was established to investigate transcription factor gene function inArabidopsis. As part of the REGIA project, the present study describes the characterisation, interms of sequence, expression and function, of two members of the plant-specific AP2/ERFtranscription factor family: AP2.76 and AP2.72. Phylogenetic analyses of their predictedamino acid sequences placed AP2.76 in the DRE/CRT subgroup, members of which bind theDRE/CRT cis-acting element and AP2.72 in the ERF subgroup, members of which bind theGCC-box cis-acting promoter element. On the basis of the observed sequences similarities andpredicted DNA binding specificities, AP2.76 was hypothesised to function in an abiotic stresssignalling pathway while AP2.72 was hypothesized to function in a pathogen responsepathway.
