Functional Description ? help Back to Top
Source Description
UniProtProbable transcription factor that promotes early floral meristem identity in synergy with APETALA1. Is required subsequently for the transition of an inflorescence meristem into a floral meristem, by an immediate upstream regulation of the ABC classes of floral homeotic genes. Activates directly APETALA1, CAULIFLOWER and AGAMOUS, and indirectly APETALA3 and PISTILLATA with the cooperation of UFO. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:8565821, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9783581, ECO:0000269|Ref.6}.
