Source Description
TAIRencodes a member of the ERF (ethylene response factor) subfamily B-3 of ERF/AP2 transcription factor family. The protein contains one AP2 domain. There are 18 members in this subfamily including ATERF-1, ATERF-2, AND ATERF-5.
UniProtActs as a transcriptional activator. Binds to the GCC-box pathogenesis-related promoter element. Involved in the regulation of gene expression by stress factors and by components of stress signal transduction pathways. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:11950980}.

  1. AtERF14 gene is important for ethylene responses and pathogen resistance.
    [PMID: 17114278]
  2. ERF9 and ERF14 are involved in the interaction between Piriformospora and Arabidopsis. Inactivation of these genes diminishes the P. indica-induced growth promotion and activates the expression of the PATHOGENESIS-RELATED genes.
