The rice Os11g0102100 was reported as OsWOX in 2007  by researchers from China.
- 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)
- WOX3 protein was also targeted into the nucleus of transiently transfected onion cells.
