Summation

AP-2 family transcription factors (TFAP2) bind palindromic DNA response elements as dimers. AP-2 family members are able to form homo- and heterodimers through the interaction of their C-terminal helix-span-helix (HSH) motifs. Both HSH motifs and centrally located basic regions are needed for DNA binding (Williams and Tjian 1991a, Williams and Tjian 1991b).
