Description

Plant homeobox genes can be classified into 14 classes based on sequence differentiation and fusion with characteristic codomain sequences. Homeobox genes encode a typical DNA-binding domain of 60 amino acids, known as homeodomain. Typically, homeodomain folds into characteristic 3D structure containing three alpha-helices, of which the second and third form a helix-turn-helix motif. In some of the HB protein along with the HB domain it also contain PHD codomain. PHD domain are usually located several hundred amino acids upstream of the homeodomain.
