NF-X1 Family Introduction

The human NF-X1 protein and homologous proteins in eukaryotes represent a class of transcription factors which are characterised by NF-X1 type zinc finger motifs. The Arabidopsis genome encodes two NF-X1 homologs, which we termed AtNFXL1 and AtNFXL2.

The Arabidopsis AtNFXL1 and AtNFXL2 proteins are characterized by NF-X1 type zinc fingers, which potentially mediate DNA binding, and PHD finger motifs, which potentially mediate protein interactions. The AtNFXL1 protein is part of a regulatory mechanism, which improves the physiological status of plants and supports growth and survival under stress.
