The two conserved cysteines and histidines co-ordinate a zinc ion. The following pattern describes the zinc finger. #-X-C-X(1-5)-C-X3-#-X5-#-X2-H-X(3-6)-[H/C] Where X can be any amino acid, and numbers in brackets indicate the number of residues. The positions marked # are those that are important for the stable fold of the zinc finger. The final position can be either his or cys. The C2H2 zinc finger is composed of two short beta strands followed by an alpha helix. The amino terminal part of the helix binds the major groove in DNA binding zinc fingers. The accepted consensus binding sequence for Sp1 is usually defined by the asymmetric hexanucleotide core GGGCGG but this sequence does not include, among others, the GAG (=CTC) repeat that constitutes a high-affinity site for Sp1 binding to the wt1 promoter [2].
Domain
APF00651BTB/POZ domain (BTB)BTB/POZ domainThe BTB (for BR-C, ttk and bab) [1] or POZ (for Pox virus and Zinc finger) [2] domain is present near the N-terminus of a fraction of zinc finger (Pfam:PF00096) proteins and in proteins that contain the Pfam:PF01344 motif such as Kelch and a family o ...The BTB (for BR-C, ttk and bab) [1] or POZ (for Pox virus and Zinc finger) [2] domain is present near the N-terminus of a fraction of zinc finger (Pfam:PF00096) proteins and in proteins that contain the Pfam:PF01344 motif such as Kelch and a family of pox virus proteins. The BTB/POZ domain mediates homomeric dimerisation and in some instances heteromeric dimerisation [2]. The structure of the dimerised PLZF BTB/POZ domain has been solved and consists of a tightly intertwined homodimer. The central scaffolding of the protein is made up of a cluster of alpha-helices flanked by short beta-sheets at both the top and bottom of the molecule [3]. POZ domains from several zinc finger proteins have been shown to mediate transcriptional repression and to interact with components of histone deacetylase co-repressor complexes including N-CoR and SMRT [4,5,6]. The POZ or BTB domain is also known as BR-C/Ttk or ZiN.
