HB17 transcription factor
Biological function
The HB17 protein is a homodomain-leucine zipper (HD-Zip) protein which is part of a family of plant transcription factors. These are proteins that bind to specific DNA sequences and regulate gene expression and have been shown to play an important role in the modulation of plant growth and development.

HB17 is a member of the class II subfamily of HD-Zip proteins which form either homodimers or heterodimers with other HD-Zip II proteins and function as repressors of gene expression.
