The Ethylene-responsive element binding factor-associated Amphiphilic Repression (EAR) motifs, which were initially identified in
members of the Arabidopsis thaliana. EAR motif-containing proteins can function as transcription repressors, thus affecting the structure of
chromatin by histone modifications and thereby repressing gene transcription.
EAR motif-containing proteins are highly conserved across diverse plant species and play important roles in hormone signal transduction, stress responses and development.
The rising amount of genomic sequence data is generating
more research demands for gene function prediction.So we constructed a platform for plant EAR motif-containing
proteins named PlantEAR based on the predicted EAR motif-containing proteins in
