Source Description
TAIREncodes SUF4 (SUPPRESSOR of FRI 4), a putative zinc-finger-containing transcription factor that is required for delayed flowering in winter-annual Arabidopsis. suf4 mutations strongly suppress the late-flowering phenotype of FRI (FRIGIDA) mutants. suf4 mutants also show reduced H3K4 trimethylation at FLC (FLOWERING LOCUS C), a floral inhibitor. SUF4 may act to specifically recruit a putative histone H3 methyltransferase EFS (EARLY FLOWERING IN SHORT DAYS) and the PAF1-like complex to the FLC locus.
UniProtSequence-specific DNA binding factor that recognizes the 5'-CCAAATTTTAAGTTT-3' sequence. Recruites the FRI-C complex to the FLC promoter. Required for FRI-mediated FLC activation, but has no effect on the expression of MAF1, MAF2, MAF3, MAF5, UFC and CO. Dispensable for the reactivation of FLC in early embryogenesis, but required to maintain high levels of FLC expression in later embryonic and vegetative development. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:17079264, ECO:0000269|PubMed:17138694, ECO:0000269|PubMed:19121105, ECO:0000269|PubMed:21282526}.
