The Arabidopsis Genome Resource (AGR) might be able to help you a bit.
There are some 120 annotated genes which have 'transcription factor' in
their description.

Go to ukcrop.net/agr/ and type 'transcription factor' in the search box
and you will see a list of all objects in the database that contain the
words 'transcription factor'.

Or select 'Gene Product' from one of the drop-down menus on this page, and
on the resulting page type '*transcription*' in the search box to list
only those gene products that contain the word 'transcription'.

Hope this helps.
