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 the homeodomain protein of WOX classes it has one or two extra residues between helices 1 and 2, and four to five extra residues between helices 2 and 3.
