Mutated genes

Locus name Alias Hormone Mutated site Paper description
AT2G27050 EIL1 ethylene EIN3-LIKE 1(EIL1) .transcription factor activity;the most closely related to EIN3 in EIL proteins.
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.
