Abstract (English)

The C2H2 zinc finger motif is a compact ~ 30 amino acid molecular recognition domain that comprises a beta-hairpin followed by an alpha-helix. These domains are typically found as tandem arrays that mediate specific interactions with various macromolecules including DNA, RNA and other proteins. Although very well characterized as a DNA-binding domain, relatively little is currently understood ...
