Homologous Superfamily

Transcription regulator FadR/GntR, C-terminal (IPR008920)

Short name: TF_FadR/GntR_C

Overlapping entries


This superfamily represents the C-terminal ligand binding domain of many members of the Gluconate operon transcriptional repressor (GntR) family. This domain probably binds to a range of effector molecules that regulate the transcription of genes through the action of the N-terminal DNA-binding domain. It is a alpha helical domain that is also found in the known structure of Fatty acid metabolism regulator (FadR) where it binds to acyl-coA [PMID: 11013219].
