High mobility group (HMG)-box proteins, a large and functionally diverse superfamily of architectural protein, are involved in the regulation of DNA-dependent processes such as transcription, replication and DNA repair via the HMG-box domain. Bobby sox homolog (BBX), a newly identified HMG-Box protein, may function as a sequence-specific transcription factor. However, its expression pattern and biological functions are largely unknown. In this work, phylogenetic analysis showed that BBX is… Expand
