OVATE domain profile


OVATE family proteins (OFPs) are a plant-specific family of regulatory proteins that function as transcriptional repressors and regulate multiple aspects of plant growth and development. They are characterized by a conserved C-terminal OVATE domain of approximately 70 amino acids [1,2,3].

The profile we developed covers the entire OVATE domain.
