ABSTRACT
A definition of the term "leucine zipper" is presented. This term refers to an ampiphatic α-helical motif in which leucine residues are present every seven amino acids. This forms a hydrophobic stretch on the α-helix surface. Hydrophobic interactions mediate the dimerization of two leucine-zipper containing proteins.
