Physcomitrella patens C2C2-GATA Family


Lowry & Atchley. 2000: The GATA-binding transcription factors comprise a protein family whose members contain either one or two highly conserved zinc finger DNA-binding domains. Members of this group have been identified in organisms ranging from cellular slime mold to vertebrates, including plants, fungi, nematodes, insects, and echinoderms.

Benchmark against A. thaliana

The Sensitivity and Positive Predictive Value (PPV) were assessed for this family. The data reported by Reyes et al. 2004 for A. thaliana were taken as gold standard.

The gold standard reported 29 members for this family, 29 of which are present in ArabTFDB, giving a PPV and a Sensitivity of 1.00.

This family is also present in:
