Source Description
UniProtTranscription factor involved in the control of processes related to senescence and pathogen defense (PubMed:12000796). Interacts specifically with the W box (5'-(T)TGAC[CT]-3'), a frequently occurring elicitor-responsive cis-acting element (PubMed:12000796). Activates the transcription of the SIRK gene and represses its own expression and that of the WRKY42 genes (PubMed:12000796). Modulates phosphate homeostasis and Pi translocation by regulating PHO1 expression (PubMed:25733771). {ECO:0000269|PubMed:12000796, ECO:0000269|PubMed:25733771}.
