※ ZF-CW family introduction

    ZF-CW: The zinc finger CW (ZF-CW) domain is a motif of about 60 residues that is frequently found in proteins involved in epigenetic regulation. The ZF-CW domain adopts a new fold in which a zinc ion is coordinated tetrahedrally by four conserved Cys ligand residues. The tertiary structure of the ZF-CW domain partially resembles that adopted by the plant homeo domain (PHD) finger bound to the histone tail, suggesting that the ZF-CW domain and the PHD finger have similar functions.
