Source Description
UniProtTranscriptional activator that regulates the cold-induced transcription of CBF/DREB1 genes. Binds specifically to the MYC recognition sites (5'-CANNTG-3') found in the CBF3/DREB1A promoter. Mediates stomatal differentiation in the epidermis probably by controlling successive roles of SPCH, MUTE, and FAMA. Functions as a dimer with SPCH during stomatal initiation (PubMed:18641265, PubMed:28507175). {ECO:0000269|PubMed:17416732, ECO:0000269|PubMed:18641265, ECO:0000269|PubMed:28507175}.
