Pit-1 transcription factor bound to DNA. Molecular model showing pituitary-specific positive transcription factor 1 (Pit-1) (green and purple) bound to a strand of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid, green, yellow). Transcription factors are proteins that bind to specific sequences of DNA and control the transcription (transfer) of genetic information from DNA to RNA (ribonucleic acid). Pit-1 binds to the genes that code for growth hormone, which is produced in the pituitary gland.
