Molecular evolution of the GATA family of transcription factors: Conservation within the DNA-binding domain


By: J. Lowry n & W. Atchley n

author keywords: GATA; transcription factor; zinc finger; DNA binding domain; phylogeny; Boltzmann entropy; predictive motif
MeSH headings : Amino Acid Motifs; Amino Acid Sequence; Binding Sites; Conserved Sequence; DNA-Binding Proteins / physiology; Erythroid-Specific DNA-Binding Factors; Evolution, Molecular; Models, Molecular; Molecular Sequence Data; Phylogeny; Protein Structure, Tertiary; Transcription Factors / physiology; Zinc Fingers
TL;DR: It is shown that only the C-terminal zinc finger and basic domain, which together constitute the GATA-binding domain, are conserved throughout this protein family, and multiple modes of evolution are suggested, including gene duplication and modular evolution of GATA factors based upon inclusion of a class IV zinc finger motif.
