Source Description
UniProtTranscription factor involved in the unfolded protein response (UPR). Acts during endoplasmic reticulum stress (ER) by activating unfolded protein response (UPR) target genes via direct binding to the UPR element (UPRE). Plays a role in plant immunity and abiotic stress responses. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:15781873, ECO:0000269|PubMed:18574595, ECO:0000269|PubMed:19017746, ECO:0000269|PubMed:21482766, ECO:0000269|PubMed:22359644}.
