TonEBP is a transcription factor that regulates gene expression induced by osmotic stress in mammalian cells. The crystal structure of TonEBP (orange ribbon in glass surface) in complex with a target DNA (purple) reveals that the transcription factor binds as a dimer and completely wraps around the DNA. This binding mode retards dissociation of the complex and may be the major mechanism of TonEBP binding to DNA. See pages 90-94.
