Encodes the alpha-subunit shared between protein farnesyltransferase and protein geranylgeranyltransferase-I. Involved in protein prenylation: covalent attachment of the C-15 isoprene farnesyl or the C-20 isoprene geranylgeranyl groups to the C-terminal end of some proteins. Involved in shoot and flower meristem homeostasis, and response to ABA and drought. Also regulates leaf cell shape. Mutant is epistatic to era1.

Relative of Early Flowering 6 (REF6) encodes a Jumonji N/C and zinc finger domain-containing protein that acts as a positive regulator of flowering in an FLC-dependent pathway. REF6 mutants have hyperacetylation of histone H4 at the FLC locus. REF6 interacts with BES1 in a Y2H assay and in vitro. REF6 may play a role in brassinoteroid signaling by affecting histone methylation in the promoters of BR-responsive genes. It is most closely related to the JHDM3 subfamily of JmjN/C proteins.
