Structural basis of DNA-protein recognition.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

Recent structure determinations of several repressor-operator complexes have shown how proteins can recognize specific binding sites on DNA. Although each of these repressor proteins belongs to the 'helix-turn-helix' class of DNA-binding proteins, they do not use a simple code for recognition.
