The SKN-1 transcription factor specifies early embryonic cell fates in Caenorhabditis elegans. SKN-1 binds DNA at high affinity as a monomer, by means of a basic region like those of basic-leucine zipper (bZIP) proteins, which bind DNA only as dimers. We have investigated how the SKN-1 DNA-binding domain (the Skn domain) promotes stable binding of a basic(More)
