  • the structure of melanocyte inducing transcription factor includes three critically important regions. two of the regions, called the helix-loop-helix motif and the leucine-zipper motif, are critical for protein interactions. these motifs allow molecules of melanocyte inducing transcription factor to interact with each other or with other proteins that have a similar structure, creating a two-protein unit (dimer) that functions as a transcription factor. the other region, known as the basic motif, binds to specific areas of dna, allowing the dimer to control gene activity. medlineplus.gov

  • called camp-responsive element-binding protein 3-like 3 (creb3l3), the transcription factor has previously been reported to be activated during fasting and it also has a role in regulating triglyceride metabolism. a liver-specific transcription factor, creb3l3 is a leucine zipper domain member of the creb/activating transcription factor (atf) family, located in the endoplasmic reticulum. medpagetoday.com

  • to remove a zipper, local anesthetic is injected into the area. mineral oil is used to lubricate the zipper, and then one attempt is made to unzip the zipper. if this attempt is unsuccessful, a sturdy wire cutter (diagonal cutter) is used to cut the median bar on the top of the zipper slider, which connects its front and back plates. then the slider falls off in 2 pieces, and the zipper teeth come apart readily. merckmanuals.com

  • transmembrane helix-helix interactions mediate the folding and assembly of membrane proteins. recognition motifs range from gxxxg and leucine zippers to polar side chains and salt bridges. some canonical membrane proteins contain local charge clusters that are important for folding and function, and which have to be compatible with a stable insertion into the bilayer via the translocon. recently, the electrostatic "charge zipper" has been described as another kind of assembly motif. the protein sequences exhibit a quasi-symmetrical pattern of complementary charges that can form extended ladders of salt bridges. such segments can insert reversibly into membranes, or even translocate across them. nature uses charge zippers in transport processes, and they can also be adapted in the design of cell-penetrating carriers. nih.gov
