Biological function
NGAL2 is a transcription factor that has been shown to negatively affect the expression of the PLA1 gene. The PLA1 gene codes for a cytochrome P450 mono-oxygenase enzyme that is involved in the production of factors that control cell proliferation. By knocking out this gene the levels of PLA1 may go up resulting in altered growth characteristics, which are phenotypically shown by resulting in a significant larger leaf size and increased biomass. In Arabidopsis thaliana knockout experiments, plants developed larger seeds.
