Description

This is a plant specific transcription factor family. The initiation of nodule development in leguminous plant is dependent on the function of the Nin gene (nodule inception). The most prominent feature of the NIN protein is a 60-amino acid (aa)-long sequence that is strongly conserved cross a variety of proteins. This region has been named the RWP-RK domain according to invariant amino acids of the consensus sequence and its function has been predicted to be DNA binding and dimerization.
