Description

GeBP/GPL genes represent a newly defined class of leucine-zipper (Leu-zipper). Leu-zipper motifs can be defined as coiled coils consisting of four to seven repeats of seven amino acids denoted a to g. Residues a and d consist largely of hydrophobic residues with Leus very often found in d positions, whereas residues at e and g positions are charged. In GeBP, Leu-zipper motifs matches this definition at all d and g positions but differs mainly at three a positions where charged residues are found instead of hydrophobic residues. In addition, no coiled-coil structure is predicted in the C-terminal domain. Another structural feature of the GeBP/GPL Leu-zipper is the distance between it and the DNA-binding domain it can vary from 92 to 209 amino acids in the GeBP/GPL proteins.
