Oryza sativa subsp. japonica C2C2-Dof Family

Description

Yanagisawa. 2004: Dof (DNA-binding with one finger) domain proteins are plant-specific transcription factors with a highly conserved DNA-binding domain, which presumably includes a single C(2)-C(2) zinc finger. During the past decade, numerous Dof domain proteins have been identified in both monocots and dicots including maize, barley, wheat, rice, tobacco, Arabidopsis, pumpkin, potato, and pea. Biochemical, molecular biological and molecular genetic analyses revealed that Dof domain proteins function as a transcriptional activator or a repressor involved in diverse plant-specific biological processes. Although more physiological roles of Dof domain proteins would be elucidated in future because of numerous Dof domain proteins in plants, it is already evident that the Dof domain proteins play critical roles as transcriptional regulators in plant growth and development.

Domain alignments

Benchmark against A. thaliana

The Sensitivity and Positive Predictive Value (PPV) were assessed for this family. The data reported by Lijavetzky et al. 2003 for A. thaliana were taken as gold standard.

The gold standard reported 36 members for this family, 35 of which are present in ArabTFDB, giving a PPV of 0.97. One additional member not present in ArabTFDB might be a false negative, giving a Sensitivity of 0.97.

This family is also present in:
