Source Description
UniProtTranscriptional regulator that specifically binds 5'-GATA-3' or 5'-GAT-3' motifs within gene promoters (PubMed:22102866, PubMed:25077795). Involved in the modulation of chloroplast development, growth and division in a cytokinin-dependent manner (PubMed:22102866, PubMed:22811435). Repressor of the gibberellic acid (GA) signaling pathway that regulates flowering and modulates greening, in a SOC1-dependent manner (PubMed:20844019, PubMed:23739688, PubMed:25077795). Prevents the accumulation of SOC1 during flowering (PubMed:23739688). Promotes chlorophyll biosynthesis throughout the plant, by regulating chlorophyll biosynthetic genes (e.g. HEMA1 and GUN4) and chloroplast localized glutamate synthase (e.g. GLU1) (PubMed:18417639, PubMed:20844019, PubMed:21453984, PubMed:22102866, PubMed:23878229, PubMed:25077795). Involved in the regulation of sugar-sensing genes (e.g. HXK1, HXK2, STP13 and PLT6) (PubMed:18417639). Regulator of germination, senescence, elongation growth and flowering time (PubMed:20844019, PubMed:22102866, PubMed:23878229). Influences also leaf starch content (PubMed:22102866). {ECO:0000269|PubMed:18417639, ECO:0000269|PubMed:20844019, ECO:0000269|PubMed:21453984, ECO:0000269|PubMed:22102866, ECO:0000269|PubMed:22811435, ECO:0000269|PubMed:23739688, ECO:0000269|PubMed:23878229, ECO:0000269|PubMed:25077795}.

Source Description
UniProtINDUCTION: By light (including both red and white lights) (PubMed:17208962, PubMed:17587690). Levels follow a circadian and diurnal rythm, with a peak at 20 hours, thus preempting dawn (PubMed:17208962). Activated by gibberellic acid (GA) (PubMed:20844019). Induced by cytokinin and derivatives (e.g. benzyladenine, t-Zeatin and 6-benzylaminopurine) in light conditions (PubMed:16212609, PubMed:17587690, PubMed:21453984, PubMed:22811435). Triggered by nitrate (PubMed:16262716). Negatively regulated by AP3/PI (PubMed:18417639). Strong accumulation during cold imbibition of nondormant seeds, but not at warm temperatures. Regulated by PIF transcription factors (PubMed:20844019). Repressed by HAN (PubMed:23335616). Inhibited by SOC1 (PubMed:23739688). Down-regulated by auxin (2,4D) and auxin response factors (e.g. ARF2 and ARF7) (PubMed:23878229). {ECO:0000269|PubMed:16212609, ECO:0000269|PubMed:17208962, ECO:0000269|PubMed:17587690, ECO:0000269|PubMed:18417639, ECO:0000269|PubMed:20844019, ECO:0000269|PubMed:21453984, ECO:0000269|PubMed:22811435, ECO:0000269|PubMed:23335616, ECO:0000269|PubMed:23739688, ECO:0000269|PubMed:23878229, ECO:0000303|PubMed:16262716}.
