High mobility group (HMG) proteins 1 and 2 are thought to be associated with chromatin enriched in active gene sequences, to stimulate endogenous transcription of class II and III genes using HMG-depleted nuclei, and to bind specific DNA sequences upstream of the coding regions of trout HMG-T and human beta-globin genes. In testing the possibility that… CONTINUE READING
