C EBP Protein

A class of Proteins that were originally identified by their ability to bind the DNA sequence CCAAT. The typical CCAAT-enhancer binding protein Forms dimers and consists of an activation domain, a DNA-binding basic region, and a Leucine-rich Dimerization domain (Leucine Zippers). CCAAT-Binding Factor is structurally distinct type of CCAAT-enhancer binding protein consisting of a trimer of three different subunits.
