Abstract

Background: Classical zinc finger proteins are extremely abundant and interact with DNA using a well defined recognition code. Results: We solved the structure of ZNF217 bound to its cognate DNA. Conclusion: ZNF217 presents a unique DNA interaction pattern including a new type of protein-DNA contact. Significance: This study deepens our understanding of DNA recognition by classical zinc fingers.
