By the use of three different experimental approaches, more than 40 cDNA clones encoding putative transcription factors have been isolated from plants. In this review, we compare the relative advantages and disadvantages of each approach, suggest methods for investigating the activity of the factors in vitro and in vivo, and discuss strategies to elucidate their physiological functions during plant growth and development.
