The rice Os11g0102100 was reported as OsWOX in 2007 [1] by researchers from China.

Annotated Information

Figure 3. Nuclear localization of OsWOX.[1].

Gene Symbol

  • Os11g0102100 <=> OsWOX,WOX


  • WOX3 acted as a transcriptional repressor of YAB3.
  • A regulatory network involving YAB3, WOX3, and KNOX genes required for rice leaf development.


  • The rice WOX3 is highly conserved with maize narrow sheath1 (NS1) and NS2 and Arabidopsis PRESSED FLOWER (PRS)

Subcellular localization

  • WOX3 protein was also targeted into the nucleus of transiently transfected onion cells.

Labs working on this gene
