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.
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}.

  1. The transcriptional complex of EIN3-ESE1 is a crucial event in the salt response, thereby connecting the transcriptional regulation of EIN3 and the downstream protein ESE1 in the salt response.
    [PMID: 21832142]
  2. Data show that the HD-Zip protein Athb-21 and B-3 AP2/ERF transcription factor ESE1 are interact with the abscisic acid responsive element binding factor AREB2/ABF4, which binds to a G-box absolutely required for expression of the COX5b-1 gene.
