Source Description
UniProtStimulates the transcription of various genes by recognizing and binding to a CCAAT motif in promoters (By similarity). Interacts with REF6 to directly regulate SOC1 transcription in response to flowering signals from photoperiod and gibberellic acid pathways (PubMed:25105952). {ECO:0000250, ECO:0000269|PubMed:25105952}.
