Source Description
UniProtTranscription activator that binds specifically to the VIP1 response elements (VREs) DNA sequence 5'-ACNGCT-3' found in some stress genes (e.g. TRX8 and MYB44), when phosphorylated/activated by MPK3. Required for Agrobacterium VirE2 nuclear import and tumorigenicity. Promotes transient expression of T-DNA in early stages by interacting with VirE2 in complex with the T-DNA and facilitating its translocation to the nucleus, and mediates stable genetic transformation by Agrobacterium by binding H2A histone. Prevents cell differentiation and shoot formation. Limits sulfate utilization efficiency (SUE) and sulfate uptake, especially in low-sulfur conditions. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:11432846, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12124400, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15108305, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15824315, ECO:0000269|PubMed:17947581, ECO:0000269|PubMed:19820165, ECO:0000269|PubMed:20547563}.

Source Description
UniProtINDUCTION: Transcriptionally activated during the acquisition of pluripotentiality (in protoplasts) by pericentromeric chromatin decondensation and DNA demethylation. Targeted to degradation by the proteasome by VBF and Agrobacterium virF in SCF(VBF) and SCF(virF) E3 ubiquitin ligase complexes after mediating T-DNA translocation to the nucleus. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:15108305}.
