Galdieria sulphuraria bZIP Family


Jakoby et al. 2002: In plants, basic region/leucine zipper motif (bZIP) transcription factors regulate processes including pathogen defence, light and stress signalling, seed maturation and flower development.

Members of this family
  SHOULD possess bZIP_1 bZIP_2 bZIP_Maf domains
  SHOULD NOT possess HLH domain

Benchmark against A. thaliana

The Sensitivity and Positive Predictive Value (PPV) were assessed for this family. The data reported by Jakoby et al. 2002 for A. thaliana were taken as gold standard.

The gold standard reported 74 members for this family, 68 of which are present in ArabTFDB, giving a PPV of 0.97. Six additional members not present in ArabTFDB might be false negatives, giving a Sensitivity of 0.92.

This family is also present in:
