binding domain

binding domain

Any structural motif present on a DNA-binding regulatory protein which controls gene expression, either enhancing or repressing mRNA synthesis. Binding proteins recognise sequence-specific binding domains on DNA and often share sequence homology with each other—e.g., leucine zipper motif and protein products of the myc, fos, and jun proto-oncogenes.
