At3g58070: GIS (GLABROUS INFLORESCENCE STEMS)

Putative transcription factor, contains C2H2 domain, regulates aspects of shoot maturation in Arabidopsis thaliana. GIS loss-of-function mutations affect the epidermal differentiation of inflorescence organs, causing a premature decrease in trichome production on successive leaves, stem internodes, and branches. Overexpression has the opposite effect on trichome initiation and causes other heterochronic phenotypes, affecting flowering and juvenile���adult leaf transition and inducing the formation of rosette leaves on inflorescence stems.
