Annotated Information

Gene Symbol

  • Os01g0102400 <=> OsNF-YC9


  • Nuclear factor γ (NF-γ) is a ubiquitous transcription factor that regulates important physiological and developmental processes.[1]
  • In plants, the roles of NF-γ were identified in regulation of embryogenesis, flowering time, chloroplast biogenesis, seed germination and stress tolerance.[1] [2]


  • Expression profile analysis covering the whole life cycle revealed that transcripts of OsNF-γ differentially accumulated in a tissue-specific preferential or constitutive manner.[1]
  • Analysis of expression correlation and Gene Ontology annotation suggested that OsNF-Y genes were co-expressed with genes that participated in stress, accumulation of seed storage reserves, and plant development.
  • Co-expression analysis also revealed that OsNF-Y genes might interact with each other, suggesting that NF-γ subunits formed complexes that take part in transcriptional regulation.[1]


  • NF-γ is a heterotrimeric complex composed of three subunits: NF-γA (CBF-B/HAP2), NF-γB (CBF-A/HAP3), and NF-γC


  • NF-γ complexes are CCAAT-specific transcription factors that bind to CCAAT sites in DNA to control the expression of target genes[1] .
