Soybean Transcription Factors and Other Genes and Methods of their Use
Gene expression is controlled at the transcriptional level by very diverse group of proteins called transcription factors (TFs). 5671 soybean (Glycine max) genes have been identified and disclosed as putative transcription factors through mining of soybean genome sequences. Distinct classes of the TFs are also disclosed which may be expressed and or function in a manner that is tissue specific, developmental stage specific, biotic and/or abiotic stress specific. Manipulation and/or genetic engineering of specific transcription factors may improve the agronomic performance or nutritional quality of plants. Transgenic plants expressing a select number of these TFs are disclosed. These transgenic plants show some promising traits, such as improving the capability of the plant to grow and reproduce under drought conditions.
