Basic region/leucine zipper (bZIP) transcription factors play roles in a large number of biological processes and bZIP genes appear to be present in all eukaryotes . bZIP proteins are defined by the basic region/leucine zipper motif, with the basic region being responsible for DNA binding and the leucine zipper for dimerisation. The bZIP domain contains these two structural features on a contiguous -helix with the basic region of about 16 amino acids containing a nuclear localization signal followed by an invariant N-X7-R/K motif that contacts the DNA. The leucine zipper contains a heptad repeat of leucines or other bulky hydrophobic amino acids that creates an amphipathic helix and two of these zipper motifs adhere and create a coiled coil structure . Leucine zippers are also found in a number of other transcription factors such as WRKY transcription factors .

bZIP genes in plants have been implicated in regulating important processes such as defence against pathogens, light and stress signaling, seed maturation and flower development . The 75 bZIP genes that have been identified in the Arabidopsis genome have been divided into 10 groups based on the sequence of the basic region and additional conserved motifs . This classification was not based purely on phylogeny and emphasized conserved motifs outside of the bZIP domain.
