Bacterial transcription activator, effector binding (IPR010499)

Short name: AraC_E-bd

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships


This domain is found in the probable effector binding domain of a number of different bacterial transcription activators [PMID: 10802742] and is also present in some DNA gyrase inhibitors. The absence of a HTH motif in the DNA gyrase inhibitors is thought to indicate the fact that these do not bind DNA.
