Gene : HY5 A. thaliana

DB identifier  ? AT5G11260 Secondary Identifier  ? locus:2148007
Name  ? ELONGATED HYPOCOTYL 5 Brief Description  Basic-leucine zipper (bZIP) transcription factor family protein
TAIR Computational Description  Basic-leucine zipper (bZIP) transcription factor family protein;(source:Araport11)
TAIR Curator Summary  Basic leucine zipper (bZIP) transcription factor. Nuclear localization. Involved in light-regulated transcriptional activation of G-box-containing promoters. Negatively regulated by Cop1. Although cytokinins do not appear to affect the gene's promoter activity, they appear to stabilize the protein. HY5 plays a role in anthocyanin accumulation in far-red light and blue light, but not in red light or in the dark. Mutant studies showed that the gene product is involved in the positive regulation of the PHYA-mediated inhibition of hypocotyl elongation. Binds to G- and Z-boxes, and other ACEs, but not to E-box. Loss of function mutation shows ABA resistant seedling phenotypes suggesting involvement for HY5 in mediating ABA responses. Binds to the promoter of ABI5 and regulates its expression.Involved in the regulation of response to nutrient levels.
