Source Description
UniprotTISSUE SPECIFICITY: Mainly expressed in leaves and seedlings, and to a lower extent, in roots, stems and inflorescences. Isoform MYB59-1 and isoform MYB59-2 are present in roots, leaves, and seedlings, while the expression of isoform MYB59-3 and isoform MYB59-4 is confined to seedlings. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:16531467}.
