Source Description
TAIRTranscriptional factor with high similarity to the B3 region of the VP1/ABI3-like proteins. Full length FUS3 protein binds to the highly conserved RY motif [DNA motif CATGCA(TG)], present in many seed-specific promoters, and the B3 domains of this transcription factor is necessary for the specific interaction with the RY element. Transcriptional activity of FUS3 requires the B3 DNA-binding domain and an activation domain. FUS3 specifies cotyledon identity. Regulator of gene expression during late embryogenesis. Involved in the control foliar organ identity in Arabidopsis by regulating the synthesis of two hormones, abscisic acid and gibberellin. FUS3 together with LEC1 positively regulate the abundance of the ABI3 protein in the seed.
UniProtTranscription regulator involved in gene regulation during late embryogenesis. Its expression to the epidermis is sufficient to control foliar organ identity by regulating positively the synthesis abscisic acid (ABA) and negatively gibberellin production. Negatively regulates TTG1 in the embryo. Positively regulates the abundance of the ABI3 protein in the seed. Cooperates with KIN10 to regulate developmental phase transitions and lateral organ development and act both as positive regulators of abscisic acid (ABA) signaling during germination (PubMed:22026387, PubMed:22902692). {ECO:0000269|PubMed:14675433, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15363412, ECO:0000269|PubMed:22026387, ECO:0000269|PubMed:22902692}.

  1. In this study, it was shown that gibberellin (GA) hormone biosynthesis is regulated by LEC2 and FUS3 pathways.
    [PMID: 15516508]
  2. At2S3 activation by FUS3 was rapid but CRC induction by FUS3 with abscissic acid[ABA] and by ABA followed by presence of FUS3 took longer, suggesting involvement of an indirect mechanism requiring the synthesis of intermediate regulatory factor(s)
    [PMID: 15695463]
  3. Total repression of embryogenic potential was observed in double (lec1 lec2, lec1 fus3, lec2 fus3) and triple (fus3 lec1 lec2) mutants.
    [PMID: 16034595]
  4. Results show that Significant differences in histone modifications at the phas promoter were mediated by FUS3 and PvALF, suggesting that they function through different epigenetic mechanisms.
    [PMID: 18038114]
  5. FUS3 function is restricted to the acquisition of embryo-dependent seed dormancy, the determination of cotyledonary cell identity, and the synthesis and accumulation of storage compounds.
    [PMID: 18343361]
  6. The C-terminal domain is required for normal FUS3 function and sensitivity to abscisic acid and gibberellic acid, and negatively regulates mRNA and protein levels.
    [PMID: 20663088]
  7. The genes positively controlled by FUS3 are not confined to previously known seed maturation-related genes and include those involved in the production of secondary metabolites and those involved in primary metabolism.
    [PMID: 21045071]
  8. FUS3 is phosphorylated by AKIN10. AKIN10 overexpression delays FUS3 degradation. AKIN10 and FUS3 function interactively to promote seed maturation, dormancy and inhibit developmental phase transitions.
    [PMID: 22026387]
  9. FUS3 contributes to the delay of seed germination at high temperature.
    [PMID: 22279962]
  10. Activation of FUS3 after germination dampens the expression of genes involved in the biosynthesis and response to the plant hormone ethylene, whereas a loss-of-function fus3 mutant shows many phenotypes consistent with increased ethylene signaling.
    [PMID: 22348746]
  11. FUS3 and AKIN10 functionally overlap in abscissic acid signaling, but play different roles in sugar responses during germination.
    [PMID: 22902692]
  12. Examination of direct targets of FUS3 reveals that FUS3 acts primarily or exclusively as a transcriptional activator.
    [PMID: 23314941]
  13. TT2 is directly bound to the regulatory region of FUSCA3, and mediates the expression of numerous genes in the fatty acid biosynthesis pathway.
    [PMID: 24397827]
  14. This study examined the role of ABSCISIC ACID INSENSITIVE3 (ABI3), FUSCA3 (FUS3) and LEAFY COTYLEDON2 (LEC2), in the production of seed reserves in Arabidopsis.

  15. LEC1, LEC2 , and FUSCA3 transcripts are candidate targets of VAL1, acting through epigenetic and/or transcriptional repression.
    [PMID: 26678037]
  16. LEAFY COTYLEDON2 (LEC2) was identified as an interacting factor of FUS3, and demonstrated that these two homologous B3 transcription factors interact to bind to the auxin biosynthesis gene YUCCA4 (YUC4) and synergistically activate its transcription during lateral roots formation.
