Source Description
TAIREncodes a WUSCHEL-related homeobox gene family member with 65 amino acids in its homeodomain. Proteins in this family contain a sequence of eight residues (TLPLFPMH) downstream of the homeodomain called the WUS box.
UniProtPotential transcription factor that plays a central role during developmental processes. {ECO:0000250}.
