- This study deals with nuclear β-amylase–like proteins, which possess a BZR1-type transcription factor domain and act as transcription factors, showing that their enzymatic-like domain influences DNA binding and ultimately the regulation of gene expression, thereby supporting a role of these proteins in metabolic sensing.
