3 Regulation of Transcription in Eukaryotes General transcription factors TATA box binding protein (TBP) Transcription factors for the assembly of the initiation complex Promoter proximal / distal enhancer binding factors Homeodomain proteins share similarities with helix-turn-helix bacterial counterparts nut often involve water bridges between DNA and protein Leucine zippers are made of two amphipathic polypeptides. One side of each peptide is hydrophobic, facilitating dimerization Zinc fingers form elongated loops held together by a single Zn
