Mutant name EIN3ox
Mutant/Transgenic plant transgenic
Ecotype Col-0
Mutagenesis type Transgenic plant
Dominant/Recessive/Semi-dominant dominant
PMID 9215635
Commenthypersensitive to ethylene

Mutated genes

Locus name Alias Hormone Mutated site Paper description
AT3G20770 EIN3 ethylene ETHYLENE-INSENSITIVE3 (EIN3);transcription factor activity;EIN3 acts downstream of the histidine kinase ethylene receptor, ETR1, and the Raf-like kinase, CTR1. The EIN3 gene encodes a novel nuclear-localized protein that shares sequence similarity, structural features, and genetic function with three EIN3-LIKE (EIL) proteins.
