Oxidation of a critical methionine modulates DNA binding of the Drosophila melanogaster high mobility group protein, HMG-D.


HMG-D is a major high mobility group chromosomal protein present during early embryogenesis in Drosophila melanogaster. During overexpression and purification of HMG-D from E. coli, a key DNA binding residue, methionine 13, undergoes oxidation to methionine sulfoxide. Oxidation of this critical residue decreases the affinity of HMG-D for DNA by three-fold… (More)
