LIA3 (localized in macronuclear anlagen 3)

a parallel G quadruplex-binding protein that regulates DNA elimination boundaries
In cells lacking LIA3 (ΔLIA3), the excision of IESs bounded by specific G-rich polypurine tracts was impaired and imprecise, whereas the removal of IESs without such controlling sequences was unaffected. Lia3p binds to oligonucleotides containing these polypurine tracts, which form parallel G-quadruplex structures in vitro.
