DAG for GO:0070888id: GO:0070888

name: E-box binding
namespace: molecular_function
def: "Interacting selectively and non-covalently with an E-box, a DNA motif with the consensus sequence CANNTG that is found in the promoters of a wide array of genes expressed in neurons, muscle and other tissues." [GOC:BHF, GOC:vk, PMID:11812799]
comment: Note that as agreed during the transcription overhaul, terms specifying binding to specific transcription regulatory motifs are no longer being created. The level of specificity GO has decided to go to is the "core promoter", "core promoter proximal region" and "enhancer". To capture more detail, please consider using column 16.
