TEA/ATTS domain (IPR000818)

Short name: TEA/ATTS_dom

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships



The TEA domain is a DNA-binding region of about 66 to 68 amino acids that has been named after the two proteins that originally defined the domain: TEF-1 and abaA. The TEA domain is located toward the amino terminus of eukaryotic transcription factors of the TEA/ATTS family. It is predicted to contain three alpha-helices, two of which have been demonstrated to be important for DNA binding [PMID: 8389695].
