The B3 DNA binding domain is shared amongst various plant-specific transcription factors, including factors involved in auxin-regulated and abscisic acid-regulated transcription. Herein, we report the NMR solution structure of the B3 domain of the Arabidopsis thaliana cold-responsive transcription factor RAV1. The structure consists of a seven-stranded open beta-barrel and two alpha-helices located at the ends of the barrel and is significantly similar to the structure of the noncatalytic DNA… CONTINUE READING
