At1g63030: ddf2 (DWARF AND DELAYED FLOWERING 2)

encodes a member of the DREB subfamily A-1 of ERF/AP2 transcription factor family (DDF2). The protein contains one AP2 domain. There are six members in this subfamily, including CBF1, CBF2, and CBF3. Overexpression of this gene results in the reduction of gibberellic acid biosynthesis. This gene is expressed in all tissues examined, but most abundantly expressed in rosette leaves and stems. Overexpression of DDF1, a putative paralog of this gene, also reduces gibberellic acid biosynthesis and makes the plants more tolerant to high-salinity levels.
