Dachshund-homology domain found in Ski-like protein (Sno) and similar proteins
Ski-like protein, also known as SKIL, Ski-related oncogene (Sno), or Ski-related protein, is the ski proto-oncogene homolog. It may have regulatory roles in cell division or differentiation in response to extracellular signals. The Dachshund-homology domain (DHD), also known as the N-terminal Ski/Sno/Dac domain, adopts a mixed alpha/beta structure containing a helix-turn-helix motif, similar to features found in the forkhead/winged-helix family of DNA binding proteins. It contains a conserved CLPQ motif and can bind co-factors. Its structure suggests that it may also bind DNA.
