C/EBP alpha regulates gene expression in a variety of tissues including liver, adipose, lung and intestine. C/EBP alpha uses a bipartite structural motif to bind DNA. Two protein chains dimerize through a set of amphipathic alpha helices termed the leucine zipper. Highly basic polypeptide regions emerge from the zipper to form a linked set of DNA contact surfaces. C/EBP alpha appears to function exclusively in terminally-differentiated, growth-arrested cells. Additional family members include C/EBP beta, C/EBP gamma, C/EBP delta and C/EBP epsilon, all of which exhibit similar DNA-binding specificities and affinities to C/EBP alpha. Furthermore, C/EBP beta and C/EBP delta readily form heterodimers both with each other as well as with C/EBP alpha.
