LIM domain


LIM domain
Domain found in proteins required for developmental decisions. Contain 60-residue conserved, cysteine-rich, repeats. Named after first 3 genes in group: Lin-11 ( Caenorhabditis elegans - required for asymmetric division of blast cells), IsI-1 (mammalian insulin-gene binding enhancer protein), mec-3 ( C. elegans - required for differentiation of a set of sensory neurons).
