Design of a C/EBP-specific, dominant-negative bZIP protein with both inhibitory and gain-of-function properties.


We have developed a bZIP protein, GBF-F, with both dominant-negative (DN) and gain-of-function properties. GBF-F is a chimera consisting of two components: the DNA binding (basic) region from the plant bZIP protein GBF-1 (GBF) and a leucine zipper (F) designed to preferentially heterodimerize with the C/EBP alpha leucine zipper. Biochemical studies show… (More)
