Description

Heat shock factors were shown to be involved in binding to the heat shock response elements (HSE) in heat shock promoters and activating transcription. . Members of the hsf family share structural domains and functional properties including a highly conserved N-terminal DNA binding domain and a heptad repeat ??leucine zipper?? structure adjacent to the DNA binding domain that regulates trimerization and the ability to bind DNA. 1.
