Summaries
Gene Group (FlyBase)
SP1/KLF TRANSCRIPTION FACTORS -
The Sp1/KLF (Sp1-like/Kruppel-like factors) family of zinc finger proteins are DNA binding proteins. They can act as activators or repressors and some members bind sequences within Polycomb Response Elements (PREs). (Adapted from FBrf0188187).
C2H2 ZINC FINGER TRANSCRIPTION FACTORS -
Zinc finger C2H2 transcription factors are sequence-specific DNA binding proteins that regulate transcription. They possess DNA-binding domains that are formed from repeated Cys2His2 zinc finger motifs. (Adapted from PMID:1835093, FBrf0220103 and FBrf0155739).
