Annotated Information

Gene Symbol

  • Os01g0129200 <=> ZOS1-02


  • The Cys 2/His 2 zinc-finger proteins (ZFPs) constitute one of the largest transcription factor class regulatory protein families in eukaryotes. [1]
  • The classical C2H2 zinc finger domain is involved in a wide range of functions and can bind to DNA, RNA and proteins.
  • Plant Q-type C2H2 zinc finger transcription factors play an important role in plant tolerance to various environmental stresses such as drought, cold, osmotic stress, wounding and mechanical loading.
  • The ZFPs not only interact with DNA or chromatin but their interactions with RNA and other proteins are also well documented in lower as well as higher eukaryotes.
