Transcriptional factor domains - (Oct/05/2005 )

I have found an trascriptional factor domain on a cDNA sequence, Is it possible? I think that I did some hashes in cDNA preparation.


" I think that I did some hashes in cDNA preparation."



one important thing regarding transcription factors, sequence homology to a binding site does not necessarily mean anything

maybe alternatively spliced forms of mRNA may also include some regulatory regions pertaining to their alternate forms???

but I am quite sure that sequence homology is not always an indicator of functional ability


Thank you, aimikins. I'm agree with you that sequence homology does not necessary mean anythig, but Is it possible that a transcriptional factor domain is located in 5' UTR region?
