High impact information on ATRPS5B

  • From expression analyses we conclude that AtRPS5A is the most abundantly expressed RPS5 gene in Arabidopsis [1].
  • A library of genes for zinc finger artificial transcription factors (ZF-ATF) was generated by fusion of DNA sequences encoding three-finger Cys(2)His(2) ZF domains to the VP16 activation domain under the control of the promoter of the ribosomal protein gene RPS5A from Arabidopsis thaliana [2].
