Mutated genes

Locus name Alias Hormone Mutated site Paper description
AT3G20770 EIN3 ethylene ein3-1: EMS nt1598 G to A 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.
