Carrasco et al. (2005): A novel family of plant-specific transcription factors is described. They are structurally related to DBP1 (for DNA-binding protein phosphatase 1), a new transcription factor recently characterized in tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum), which exhibits both sequencespecific DNA-binding and protein phosphatase activity.
