Identification and characterization of the DNA-binding properties of a Zhangfei homologue in Japanese pufferfish, Takifugu rubripes.


Zhangfei is a basic region-leucine zipper (bZIP) transcription factor identified through its interaction with a herpesvirus-related host cell factor HCF1 (C1). Unlike most bZIP proteins, the mammalian Zhangfei protein does not bind DNA as homodimers. It is believed due to the absence of an asparagine residue in the basic region, which forms the DNA… (More)
