1998 Annual Review of Plant Physiology and Plant Molecular Biology  
Major advances have been made in understanding the role of transcription factors in gene expression in yeast, Drosophila, and man. Transcription factor modification, synergistic events, protein-protein interactions, and chromatin structure have been successfully integrated into transcription factor studies in these organisms. While many putative transcription factors have been isolated from plants, most of them are only poorly characterized. This review summarizes examples where molecular
