TAIREncodes WRKY DNA-binding protein 29 (WRKY29).
UniProtTranscription factor involved in the expression of defense genes in innate immune response of plants. Interacts specifically with the W box (5'-(T)TGAC[CT]-3'), a frequently occurring elicitor-responsive cis-acting element. Activates WRKY 22, SIRK and its own promoters. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:11875555}.
