<p>An evidence describes the source of an annotation, e.g. an experiment that has been published in the scientific literature, an orthologous protein, a record from another database, etc.</p>
Protein which binds to DNA, typically to pack or modify the DNA, or to regulate gene expression. Among those proteins that recognize specific DNA sequences, there are a number of characteristic conserved motifs believed to be essential for specificity. Many DNA-binding domains are described in PROSITE.
