Gene : ERF1 A. thaliana

Gene ID  ? AT3G23240
Brief Description  ethylene response factor 1  Source: Araport11 (06/2016).
Is Obsolete?  false
Computational Description  ? ethylene response factor 1 (ERF1); CONTAINS InterPro DOMAIN/s: DNA-binding, integrase-type (InterPro:IPR016177), Pathogenesis-related transcriptional factor/ERF, DNA-binding (InterPro:IPR001471); BEST Arabidopsis thaliana protein match is: ethylene-responsive element binding factor 15 (TAIR:AT2G31230.1).  Source: TAIR, Jun 30, 2015.
Curator Summary  ? encodes a member of the ERF (ethylene response factor) subfamily B-3 of ERF/AP2 transcription factor family (ERF1). The protein contains one AP2 domain. There are 18 members in this subfamily including ATERF-1, ATERF-2, AND ATERF-5. EREBP like protein that binds GCC box of ethylene regulated promoters such as basic chitinases. Constitutive expression of ERF1 phenocopies ethylene over production. Involved in ethylene signaling cascade,downstream of EIN2 and EIN3.  Source: TAIR, Jun 30, 2015.

Annotation PubMed Id
High- and medium-affinity binding sites are over-represented in promoters of MYC2- or ERF1-regulated genes, and therefore they may represent new cis-regulatory elements. 21284757
ERF1 plays a positive role in salt, drought, and heat stress tolerance by stress-specific gene regulation, which integrates jasmonic acid, ethylene, and abscisic acid signals. 23719892
Expression of several ethylene biosynthetic genes and ethylene-responsive factors, including ERF1 and ERF2, was induced during reoxygenation. 24506560
Results provide evidence that AtERF1 is important for regulating AtNudt7 during oxidative signaling. 25451743
Using loss- and gain-of-function transgenic lines as well as biochemical analysis, we demonstrate that ERF1 can directly up-regulate ASA1 by binding to its promoter, leading to auxin accumulation and ethylene-induced inhibition of root growth. 26745809
