Term Information [More information on E-box binding]

Accession
GO:0070888
Name
E-box binding
Ontology
molecular_function
Synonyms
E-box promoter binding
Definition
Interacting selectively and non-covalently with an E-box, a DNA motif with the consensus sequence CANNTG that is found in the promoters of a wide array of genes expressed in neurons, muscle and other tissues. Source: PMID:11812799, GOC:BHF, GOC:vk
Comment
Note that as agreed during the transcription overhaul, terms specifying binding to specific transcription regulatory motifs are no longer being created. The level of specificity GO has decided to go to is the "core promoter", "core promoter proximal region" and "enhancer". To capture more detail, please consider using column 16.
