Annotation score:5 out of 5

<p>The annotation score provides a heuristic measure of the annotation content of a UniProtKB entry or proteome.

Probable transcription factor, which may be involved in embryonic patterning (PubMed:14711878). May be required for basal embryo development after fertilization (PubMed:14711878). Acts partially redundantly with STIP in promoting embryonic cell division and proliferation (PubMed:17706632). Promotes cotyledon boundary formation by maintaining the symmetry in CUC genes expression domains (PubMed:22827849).1 Publication2 Publications

Expressed only in the egg cell (PubMed:21316593). Not detected in the pollen tube (PubMed:21316593). Expressed in the zygote, the basal cell, and later the suspensor (PubMed:21802295). Expressed in all suspensor cells, except the hypophysis, and in the embryo surrounding region (ESR) endosperm cells (PubMed:22427333). Strongly expressed in the suspensor cells, with a weak expression also detected throughout the developing embryo (PubMed:22827849).4 Publications

<p>This subsection of the ‘Expression’ section provides information on the expression of the gene product at various stages of a cell, tissue or organism development. By default, the information is derived from experiments at the mRNA level, unless specified ‘at the protein level’.<p><a href='/help/developmental_stage' target='_top'>More...</a></p>Developmental stagei

Detected in the egg cell and the central cell of the embryo sac (PubMed:14711878). After fertilization, it is expressed in the zygote (PubMed:14711878). After the first division of the zygote, it is detected exclusively in the basal daughter cell, while WOX2 is expressed in the apical daughter cell (PubMed:14711878). Through the 16-cell stage, it is expressed in all descendants of the basal daughter, the developing suspensor and the hypophyseal cell (PubMed:14711878). After the hypophysis had divided, expression stops in descendants, but remains present in the extra embryonic suspensor (PubMed:14711878). Moreover it is found in the cellularized endosperm of the micropylar region during the globular and heart stages of embryogenesis (PubMed:14711878). Not expressed later in embryogenesis or in postembryonic stages (PubMed:14711878). Activated in the zygote after fertilization (PubMed:21316593).2 Publications

Up-regulated in the zygote after fertilization by the transcription factor WRKY2 (PubMed:21316593). Up-regulated by CLE8 (PubMed:22427333).2 Publications

<p>The checksum is a form of redundancy check that is calculated from the sequence. It is useful for tracking sequence updates.</p> <p>It should be noted that while, in theory, two different sequences could have the same checksum value, the likelihood that this would happen is extremely low.</p> <p>However UniProtKB may contain entries with identical sequences in case of multiple genes (paralogs).</p> <p>The checksum is computed as the sequence 64-bit Cyclic Redundancy Check value (CRC64) using the generator polynomial: x<sup>64</sup> + x<sup>4</sup> + x<sup>3</sup> + x + 1.
