    Abstract

    Coordinated transcriptional regulation of stress-responsive genes orchestrated by a complex network of transcription factors (TFs) and the reprogramming of metabolism ensure a plant’s continued growth and survival under adverse environmental conditions (e.g., abiotic stress). DNA-binding with one finger (Dof) proteins, a group of plant-specific TF, were identified as one of several key components of the transcriptional regulatory network involved in abiotic stress responses. In many plant species, Dofs are often activated in response to a wide range of adverse environmental conditions. Dofs play central roles in stress tolerance by regulating the expression of stress-responsive genes via the DOFCORE element or by interacting with other regulatory proteins. Moreover, Dofs act as a key regulatory hub of several phytohormone pathways, integrating abscisic acid, jasmonate, SA and redox signaling in response to many abiotic stresses. Taken together, we highlight a unique role of Dofs in hormone and stress signaling that integrates plant response to adverse environmental conditions with different aspects of plant growth and development.
