Exploiting the recognition code for elucidating the mechanism of zinc finger protein DNA interactions

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5260074
PMID: 28155654
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-016-3324-8

[…] for many applications. There are plethora of tools reported in the literature that are based on assuming modular mode of binding at the molecular level, including - OPEN [], ZiFiT [], Zif-Predict [], ZifBASE []. Modular assembly assumes that the residues at the key positions −1, 3 and 6 on the finger interact with 3 contiguous base pairs on the target DNA strand. The idea of such a recognition cod […]

[…] nding sites. ZiFDB http://bindr.gdcb.iastate.edu/ZiFDB contains information about engineered zinc finger arrays and individual modules that have been experimentally evaluated for function in vivo []. ZifBase http://web.iitd.ac.in/~sundar/zifbase/ is a repository that includes information about both naturally occurring and engineered zinc finger proteins []. Sequences of ZFP binding sites are also […]
