Fig. 1. Structural features of the homeobox protein Nkx3.1. (A) Nkx3.1 is a 234 amino acid protein that contains three major structural motifs crucial for its interactions with other proteins and DNA. Amino acids 1-123 correspond to the N terminal region and are depicted in purple. The homeodomain region corresponds to amino acids 124-183 and contains three helices, Helix I depicted in blue, Helix II in green and Helix III in yellow. The C terminal region corresponds to amino acids 184-234, depicted in brown. (B) Nkx3.1 protein structure. The structural feature of Nkx3.1 protein have been identified by nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (22, 23). The N terminal is depicted in purple, Helix I in blue, Helix II in green, Helix III in yellow and the C terminal in brown.
