Abstract: MBF1 (multiprotein bridging factor 1) is a transcriptional co-activator, which is highly conserved in evolution. It exists in all eukaryotes and can activate gene transcription by connecting components of the basal transcription machinery and transcription factors. Plant MBF1 plays important roles in a variety of biological processes, including controlling plant growth and development, and adversity adaptation. This review demonstrates the advance in the molecular structure and regulation mechanism of plant MBF1, and highlights the molecular mechanism of AtMBF1c in the regulation of plant heat stress response.

Key words: heat stress, MBF1, plant, transcriptional regulation
