At3g15270: SPL5 (SQUAMOSA PROMOTER BINDING PROTEIN-LIKE 5)

Encodes a member of the SPL (squamosa-promoter binding protein-like)gene family, a novel gene family encoding DNA binding proteins and putative transcription factors. Contains the SBP-box, which encodes the SBP-domain, required and sufficient for interaction with DNA. It is involved in regulation of flowering and vegetative phase change. Its temporal expression is regulated by the microRNA miR156. The target site for the microRNA is in the 3'UTR.
