The WRKY transcription factor family and senescence in switchgrass

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 4640240
PMID: 26552372
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-015-2057-4

[…] To identify all members of the WRKY gene family in the switchgrass (v1.1) genome sequence, the same modified version of the TOBFAC pipeline used previously to identify WRKY genes in Brachypodium distachyon [] was employed. Briefly, tblastn searches [] were performed against the Panicum virgatum v1.1 genome sequence using a […]


Tobacco drought stress responses reveal new targets for Solanaceae crop improvement

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 4485875
PMID: 26123791
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-015-1575-4

[…] ist of the thirty most highly induced TF genes in leaf and root tissues at an early (40┬áminutes) and late (four hours) time point (Additional file : Table S5). All TF genes are named according to the TOBFAC database nomenclature []. After 40┬áminutes of drought stress in root tissues, AP2/ERF TFs were the main group of up-regulated genes (18 genes), followed by MYB, bHLH, WRKY, C2H2 zinc finger, JA […]


A stable JAZ protein from peach mediates the transition from outcrossing to self pollination

BMC Biol
PMCID: 4364584
PMID: 25857534
DOI: 10.1186/s12915-015-0124-6

[…] accessed through the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) database using accession numbers (see Additional file : Table S6). Sequences for NtMYB21 and NtARF8 were obtained by Blasting TOBFAC database [] against the corresponding Arabidopsis sequences of these genes (accession # AT3G27810 and ACB30882), respectively. Other tobacco sequences were obtained either by direct cloning fro […]


The WRKY transcription factor family in Brachypodium distachyon

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 3583182
PMID: 22726208
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2164-13-270

[…] To identify the WRKY family in Brachypodium a modification of the TOBFAC pipeline was used. tblastn searches were performed against the JGI 8x assembly release v1.0 of strain Bd21 with JGI/MIPS PASA annotation using a representative WRKY domain from each of the subf […]


Comparative Analyses of Plant Transcription Factor Databases

Curr Genomics
PMCID: 2699837
PMID: 19721806
DOI: 10.2174/138920209787581253

[…] The database of tobacco transcription factors ( [] contains a total of 65 TF families organized in a table like format. The available genes are noted next to the TF family name. The database contains a total of over 2513 tobacco TFs. The f […]
