GATA family transcription factors (GATA-TFs) are metalloproteins that regulate many metabolic pathways. These conserved proteins recognize the consensus sequence (A/T)GATA(A/G) in the promoter regions of many genes and regulate their transcription in response to environmental signals. Currently, the study of GATA-TFs is of increasing interest. GATA genes and their proteins are most actively studied in vascular plants and fungi. Based on the results of numerous studies, it has been shown that GATA factors regulate the metabolic pathways of nitrogen and carbon, and also play a major role in the processes induced by light and circadian rhythms. In algae, GATA-TFs remain poorly studied, and information about them is scattered. In this work, all known data on GATA-TFs in the unicellular green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii has been collected and systematized. The genome of this alga contains 12 GATA coding genes. Using the phylogenetic analysis, we identified three classes of GATA factors in C. reinhardtii according to the structure of the zinc finger domain and showed their difference from the classification of GATA factors developed on vascular plants. © The Author(s), under exclusive licence to Springer-Verlag GmbH Germany, part of Springer Nature 2024.
