Description

Typically, NAC proteins share a well conserved N-terminal NAC domain (150 amino acids; aa) and a diversified C-terminal transcription regulatory (TR) region. The DB ability of NAC TFs is confined to the NAC domain which can be divided into five subdomains. The highly conserved positively charged subdomains C and D bind to DNA, whereas subdomain A may be involved in the formation of a functional dimer, and the divergent subdomains B and E may be responsible for the functional diversity of NAC genes. Some NAC proteins have protein-binding ability in their transcription regulatory regions. An ?-helical transmembrane (TM) motif present in some NAC proteins (named NTLs) is responsible for plasma membrane or endoplasmic reticulum membrane anchoring.
