Basic helix-loop-helix leucine zipper transcription factor (IPR024097)

Short name: bHLH_ZIP_TF

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships


This family consists of different transcription factors that have a basic helix-loop-helix and a leucine zipper motif. They are present in the three eukaryotic kingdoms. Many different functions have been identified for these proteins in animals, including the control of cell proliferation and development of specific cell lineages [PMID: 12679534].
