Source Description
UniProtInhibits zinc finger homeodomain (ZHD) transcription factors by interacting with them to prevent both their nuclear localization and their DNA-binding properties. Involved in integrating signals from multiple hormones by regulating the expression of specific genes. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:21455630}.

  1. IMA acts as a repressor of the meristem OC gene SlWUS and inhibits cell proliferation during floral termination. [IMA]
    [PMID: 18410478]
  2. Arabidopsis thaliana MINI ZINC FINGER2 (AtMIF2) and its homolog in tomato (Solanum lycopersicum), INHIBITOR OF MERISTEM ACTIVITY (SlIMA), participate in the floral meristem termination process by functioning as adaptor proteins.
    [PMID: 29298836]
  3. results provide important insights into the molecular mechanisms governing floral meristem (FM) termination and highlight the essential role of AtMIF2/SlIMA during this developmental step, which determines carpel number and therefore fruit size. [SlIMA]
