Special Issue Information

The NAC transcription factor is one of the largest plant-specific transcription factor families that are involved in a multitude of regulatory roles including growth, development, defense, and stress responses. This Special Issue intends to summarize the recent progress in our understanding of the many regulatory functions of NAC proteins. Our goal is to provide a compendium of the latest discoveries regarding this multifunctional regulatory protein and its potential applications in agriculture.
