- Winged-helix transcription factors
Consisting of about 110
amino acids, the domain in winged-helix transcription factors has four helices and a two-strand beta-sheet.
These proteins are classified into 17 families called FoxA-FoxQ.
Mutationsin FoxP proteins are implicated in human autoimmunediseases.
