Term Detail
GO term:enhancer sequence-specific DNA binding
GO id:GO:0001158
Definition:Interacting selectively and non-covalently with a specific sequence of DNA that is part of an enhancer, a transcription regulatory region that is somewhat distal from the core promoter and which enhances transcription from that promoter.
Number of paths to term: 10
