Encodes a glycin-rich protein that plays a role in RNA transcription and processing.
overexpressor is early flowering under SD and LD conditions. [Streitner et al., 2008] Single mutant: grp7
single mutant is late flowering under both SD and LD conditions. [Streitner et al., 2008] Function:
Plays a role in RNA transcription or processing during stress. Binds RNAs and DNAs sequence with a preference to single-stranded nucleic acids. Displays strong affinity to poly(U) and poly(G) sequence. Involved in mRNA alternative splicing of numerous targets by modulating splice site selection. Negatively regulates the circadian oscillations of its own transcript as well as RBG8 transcript. Forms an interlocked post-transcriptional negative feedback loop with the RBG8 autoregulatory circuit. Both proteins negatively autoregulate and reciprocally crossregulate by binding to their pre-mRNAs and promoting unproductive splicing coupled to degradation via the NMD pathway. Involved in the regulation of abscisic acid and stress responses. Affects the growth and stress tolerance under high salt and dehydration stress conditions, and also confers freezing tolerance, particularly via the regulation of stomatal opening and closing in the guard cells. Exhibits RNA chaperone activity during the cold adaptation process. Involved in the export of mRNAs from the nucleus to the cytoplasm under cold stress conditions. Target of the Pseudomonas syringae type III effector HopU1, which could probably be involved in plant innate immunity. Component of the flowering autonomous pathway which promotes floral transition, at least partly by down-regulating FLC. [Data from UniProt]
