Homologous Superfamily

Ethylene insensitive 3-like protein, DNA-binding domain superfamily (IPR023278)

Short name: Ethylene_insens-like_DNA-bd

Overlapping entries


Ethylene-insensitive3 (EIN3) and EIN3-like (EIL) proteins are essential transcription factors in the ethylene signaling of higher plants. The EIN3/EIL proteins bind to the promoter regions of the downstream genes and regulate their expression. This superfamily represents the DNA-binding domain of EIN3 family proteins, which consist of 5 alpha-helices which come together to form a globular domain [PMID: 15811366].
