Source Description
UniProtProbably acts as a transcriptional activator. Binds to the GCC-box pathogenesis-related promoter element. May be involved in the regulation of gene expression by stress factors and by components of stress signal transduction pathways (By similarity). {ECO:0000250, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9159183}.
UniProtTranscription factor involved in the activation of hypoxic gene expression and in ethylene response. Partially redundant with RAP2-2. Acts as a downstream regulator in the ethylene signaling pathway. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:22020282, ECO:0000269|PubMed:22530619}.
