The energetic basis of GCN4-bZIP complexes with the AP-1 and ATF/CREB sites was investigated by optical methods and scanning and isothermal titration microcalorimetry. The dissociation constant of the bZIP dimer was found to be significantly higher than that of its isolated leucine zipper domain: at 20°C it is 1.45μM and increases with temperature. To avoid complications from dissociation of this...
