GLI3R is a DNA-binding transcriptional repressor that recognizes consensus GLI sites 5'-GACCACCC-3' in the promoters of target genes (Kinzler and Vogelstein, 1990). DNA-binding is mediated through 5 C2H2 Kruppel zinc fingers in the N-terminal region of the protein, which remains intact after proteasome-mediated processing (reviewed in Hui and Angers, 2011). In the absence of Hh signaling, GLI3R has been shown to bind to the promoters of the GLI1 and GLI2 genes as assesed by ChIP and to repress gene expression (Hu et al, 2006).
