Detected in root protoxylem poles and in vessels of protoxylems, outermost metaxylems, inner metaxylems, shoots and hypocotyls. Expressed in roots, hypocotyls, cotyledons and leaves (PubMed:18445131). Accumulates in the xylem but not in interfascicular fibers or pith cells in inflorescence stems.

Source Description
TAIREncodes a NAC-domain transcription factor with transcriptional activation activity that is involved in xylem formation. Induces transdifferentiation of various cells into protoxylem vessel elements. Located in the nucleus. Expression induced in the presence of auxin, cytokinin and brassinosteroids.
UniProtTranscription activator that binds to the secondary wall NAC binding element (SNBE), 5'-(T/A)NN(C/T)(T/C/G)TNNNNNNNA(A/C)GN(A/C/T)(A/T)-3', in the promoter of target genes (e.g. genes involved in secondary wall biosynthesis, cell wall modification such as xylan accumulation, and programmed cell death) (PubMed:20935069, PubMed:20488898, PubMed:22037706, PubMed:21284754). Involved in xylem formation in roots and shoots, especially regulating protoxylem vessel differentiation by promoting immature xylem vessel-specific genes expression (PubMed:16103214, PubMed:18445131, PubMed:20488898, PubMed:21498679, PubMed:21284754).

This developmental reprogramming mediates also an increased drought stress tolerance. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:23023171}.
