Manfred Neuberg (Institut für Molekularbiologie und Tumorforschung, Phillipps- Universität Marburg, W.Ger.): "The results published in these articles provided evidence that the regularly spaced leucines in Fos and Jun are structurally important features for dimerization of the two proteins, as proposed in the leucine zipper model by W.H. Landschulz, P.F. Johnson, and S.L. McKnight. (Science, 240:1759-64, 1988). We could show that dimerization of Fos and Jun is a prerequisite for DNA binding of the protein complex to the TPA...
