Abstract

This study reports the molecular mechanism of the ABA-dependent drought-escape response pathway. We discovered that the ABF3 and ABF4 transcription factors bind to the promoter region of SOC1 and regulate its transcription, acting with the NF-Y complex. The regulatory network involving ABF3, ABF4, NF-YC, and SOC1 plays an important role in drought-accelerated flowering in Arabidopsis thaliana.
