Summary

Name: bZIP
Class: TF
Number of species containing the TAP: 123
Number of available proteins: 6785

The colour code corresponds to the rules for the domains:

should be contained
should not be contained

Domain rules:


(Domain names are clickable)
Please note: One of the domains bZIP_1 and bZIP_2 are sufficient for a protein to be classified as TAP bZIP.
