Using reporter assays in tobacco protoplasts and yeast, we investigated the function of the acidic C-terminal activation domains of tomato heat stress transcription factors HsfA1 and HsfA2. Both transcription factors contain short, essential peptide motifs with a characteristic pattern of aromatic and large hydrophobic amino acid residues embedded in an acidic context (AHA motifs). The prototype is the AHA1 motif of HsfA2, which has the sequence DDIWEELL. Our mutational analysis supports the… CONTINUE READING
