1nwq Summary



The structure was published by Miller, M., Shuman, J.D., Sebastian, T., Dauter, Z., and Johnson, P.F., in 2003 in a paper entitled "Structural Basis for DNA Recognition by the Basic Region Leucine Zipper Transcription Factor CCAAT/enhancer Binding Protein Alpha" (abstract).

This crystal structure was determined using X-ray diffraction at a resolution of 2.8 Å and deposited in 2003.

The experimental data on which the structure is based was also deposited.

This PDB entry contains a complex of 3 biomacromolecules, namely 5'-D(*TP*TP*CP*CP*TP*AP*TP*TP*GP*CP*GP*CP*AP*AP*TP*CP*CP*AP*GP*TP*T)-3', 5'-D(*AP*AP*AP*CP*TP*GP*GP*AP*TP*TP*GP*CP*GP*CP*AP*AP*TP*AP*GP*GP*A)-3', and CCAAT/enhancer binding protein alpha.

The molecule most likely forms heterotetramers.
