Protein

Type

Description (gene/AAR)

Clue


AT3G24650.1

S

ABI3 is a key component of the ABA signal transduction pathway./See text for details of AAR function.

Biochemical [45]

AT1G43850.1

Q

SEU, together with LUG (LEUNIG), controls the development of several organs./See text for details of AAR function.

Phenotypic [46]

AT4G32551.1

Q

LUG, see above./The AAR is thought to be involved in the assembly of transcriptional co-repressors.

Speculation only [47]

AT5G67470.1

P

FH6 (FORMIN HOMOLOG 6) binds profilin and is involved in actin-nucleating activity./The AAR may directly contribute to its binding activity.

Speculation only [48]

AT1G25540.1

Q

PFT1 (PHYTOCHROME AND FLOWERING TIME 1) is a transcription factor that controls the flowering time./The AAR may be involved in transcriptional activation.

Speculation only [49]
