Domain

Hox9, N-terminal activation domain (IPR006711)

Short name: Hox9_activation_N

Domain relationships

None.

Description

This domain constitutes the N-terminal of the paralogous homeobox proteins HoxA9, HoxB9, HoxC9 and HoxD9. The N-terminal region is thought to act as a transcription activation region. Activation may be by interaction with proteins such as Btg proteins, which are thought to recruit a multi-protein Ccr4-like complex [PMID: 10617598].
