Domain

HD-ZIP protein, N-terminal (IPR006712)

Short name: HD-ZIP_N

Domain relationships

None.

Description

Homeodomain leucine zipper (HDZip) genes encode putative transcription factors that are unique to plants. This observation suggests that homeobox-leucine zipper genes evolved after the divergence of plants and animals, perhaps to mediate specific regulatory events [PMID: 7915839].

This domain is the N-terminal of plant homeobox-leucine zipper proteins. Its function is unknown.
