Encodes a DNA binding protein that bind AT-rich regions in vitro.
RNA interference: ahl18
multiple RNAi knockdown transgenic line is early flowering under both SD and LD conditions. [Xiao et al., 2009] Function:
Transcription factor that specifically binds AT-rich DNA sequences related to the nuclear matrix attachment regions (MARs) (PubMed:17971039, PubMed:19517252). Negatively regulates plant innate immunity (PTI) to pathogens through the down-regulation of the PAMP-triggered FRK1 expression (PubMed:20738724). Acts redundantly with AHL18, AHL22 and AHL29 in the regulation of flowering and regulation of the hypocotyl elongation (PubMed:19517252). Acts as a chromatin remodeling factor that negatively regulates the leaf senescence (PubMed:17971039). Acts redundantly with AHL29/SOB3 to modulate hypocotyl growth inhibition in response to light (PubMed:18088311). [Data from UniProt]
