"GCN4 Protein, Synthesized In Vitro, Binds HIS3 Regulatory Sequences:
Implications for General Control of Amino Acid Biosynthetic Genes in Yeast"
Cell 43:177-188 (1985)
I.A. Hope and K. Struhl

We have also used it to assay DNA binding of several restriction
endonucleases and modification methylases. Struhl labels the protein,
rather than the DNA.
