DNA-binding proteins include transcription factors which modulate the process of transcription, nucleases which cleave DNA molecules, and histones which are involved in DNA packaging in the cell nucleus.
The specificity of DNA-binding proteins can be identified using the DNase footprinting technique.
DNA binding proteins consist of the zinc finger, the helix turn helix, and the leucine zipper (including others).
