In plants, chromosomal high mobility group (HMG) proteins have been identified in the HMGA family, containing A/T-hook DNA binding motifs, and in the HMGB family, containing an HMG-box DNA binding domain, that are considered architectural factors in chromatin. We have characterized the association of the HMGA protein, five different HMGB proteins, and the structure-specific recognition protein 1 (SSRP1) with maize chromatin by extraction experiments using NaCl, ethidium bromide, spermine, and… CONTINUE READING
