Description

FAR1 and FHY3 are two Arabidopsis genes, they have homology with a number of other uncharacterized sequences in Arabidopsis, all of which share homology to the MULE family of transposons. Both of them share substantial similarity in the putative zinc-binding domain of these proteins, the cysteine and histidine residues being conserved. Interestingly, both FAR1 and FHY3 sequences carry a very well conserved D34E motif common among all MULE elements as well as various transposases and integrases. In heterologous yeast system both FAR1 and FHY3 are capable of activating transgene, indicate to have trans activation property of this group of transcription factors. alon with this Mutator like domains these proteins also have phyA receptor domain in it.
