Calcium ion responsive DNA binding in a zinc finger fusion protein.


Zinc finger fusion proteins, having a Ca-binding site from troponin C, were created to develop Ca-responsive regulation of DNA binding. The typical zinc finger folding of a novel fusion protein with a single finger, F2-Tn, was investigated using UV-vis spectroscopy of the Co-substituted form and CD experiments. Detailed structural analyses of F2-Tn/Zn2… (More)
