A protein contains the sequence
What is the likely function of this protein?
(Note: See Box A3-4 p57.)
This protein has a leucine residue at sequential 7th positions forming a leucine zipper,found in transcription factors. The conserved sequence has leucine or other hydrophilic residue at each 7th position so that the leucine side chains radiate outward to facilitate associations with other peptides of similar structure.
