A cDNA copy of the Nc70F gene which is specifically expressed in Drosophila neural tissue was cloned and characterized. The gene has an open reading frame for the protein of 384 amino acids. The protein contains dimerization, DNA binding, activation and repression domains which are common for the eucaryotic transcription factors. However, the domain organization of the Nc70F protein has some peculiarities. The primary structure of the Nc70F product and other transcription factors were compared… CONTINUE READING
