Structural basis of DNA recognition by p53 tetramers

P53 Tetramer bound to DNA crystal structure. Each p53 monomer interacts with its two neighboring subunits through two different protein-protein interfaces. The DNA is largely B-form and shows no discernible bend, but the central base-pairs between the two half-sites display a significant slide.
