C2H2 zinc finger genes of the Gli, Zic, KLF, SP, Wilms' tumour, Huckebein, Snail, Ovo, Spalt, Odd, Blimp-1, Fez and related gene families from Branchiostoma floridae.
The C2H2 zinc finger is one of the most common domains encoded by animal genomes and has been implicated in DNA binding as well as protein-protein interactions and RNA binding. Genes encoding C2H2 zinc finger domains include not only well-studied conserved transcription factors such as Gli and Snail but also include a large diversity of more rapidly evolving genes. Here, I focus on the description of amphioxus members of families and super-families of C2H2 zinc finger genes that have been the...Expand abstract
