Description

PLATZ1 (plant AT-rich sequence- and zinc-binding protein 1), was isolated from peas. This is a plant specific protein no paralogous sequences have been found outside the plant kingdom. Multiple alignments suggesting that these proteins are a novel class of zinc-dependent DNA-binding proteins with two distantly located regions, C-x2-H-x11-C-x2-C-x(4?C5)-C-x2-C-x(3?C7)-H-x2-H and C-x2-C-x(10?C11)-C-x3-C. The PLATZ1 protein non-specifically binds to A/T-rich sequences. PLATZ1 is a novel class of plant-specific zinc-dependent DNA-binding protein responsible for A/T-rich sequence-mediated transcriptional repression.
