Physcomitrella patens NAC Family


Olsen et al. 2005: NAC proteins constitute one of the largest families of plant-specific transcription factors, and the family is present in a wide range of land plants. Here, we summarize the biological and molecular functions of the NAC family, paying particular attention to the intricate regulation of NAC protein level and localization, and to the first indications of NAC participation in transcription factor networks. The recent determination of the DNA and protein binding NAC domain structure offers insight into the molecular functions of the protein family. Research into NAC transcription factors has demonstrated the importance of this protein family in the biology of plants and the need for further studies.

Benchmark against A. thaliana

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

The gold standard reported 100 members for this family, 100 of which are present in ArabTFDB, giving a PPV of 0.99 and a Senstivity of 1.00.

This family is also present in:


There are 32 gene models in this family
