Source Description
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}.
