Proteins from the prokaryotic nucleoid. Interaction of nucleic acids with the 15 kDa Escherichia coli histone-like protein H-NS.


The interaction between nucleic acids and Escherichia coli H-NS, an abundant 15 kDa histone-like protein, has been studied by affinity chromatography, nitrocellulose filtration and fluorescence spectroscopy. Intrinsic fluorescence studies showed that the single Trp residue of H-NS (position 108) has a restricted mobility and is located within an hydrophobic… (More)
