Abstract

It is known that biotic and abiotic stress hinder plant growth and development. The expression of transcription factors in response to pathogen-related (PR) proteins is observed. The role of various signalling pathways and stress-responsive genes in the defence mechanism against biotic stress is documented. Therefore, it is of interest to document data related to the molecular identification and genetic editing of transcription factors linked to stress in crop improvement. Hence, we review known information (basic structure, and regulatory mechanisms) on four transcription factor families (WRKY, NAC, bZIP, MYB) involved in biotic stresses.
