TSC-22 / Dip / Bun (IPR000580)

Short name: TSC-22_Dip_Bun

Family relationships

None.

Description

Several eukaryotic proteins are evolutionary related and are thought to be involved in transcriptional regulation. These proteins are highly similar in a region of about 50 residues that include a conserved leucine-zipper domain most probably involved in homo- or hetero-dimerisation. Proteins containing this signature include:

  • Vertebrate protein TSC-22 [PMID: 9022669], a transcriptional regulator which seems to act on C-type natriuretic peptide (CNP) promoter.
  • Mammalian protein DIP (DSIP-immunoreactive peptide) [PMID: 8982256], a protein whose function is not yet known.
  • Drosophila protein bunched [PMID: 7555710] (gene bun) (also known as shortsighted), a probable transcription factor required for peripheral nervous system morphogenesis, eye development and oogenesis.
  • Caenorhabditis elegans hypothetical protein T18D3.7.
