Snf2 proteins in plants: gene silencing and beyond.


Proteins belonging to the conserved and diversified Snf2 family provide the ATP-driven motor subunits for remodelling systems, which control the accessibility of chromatin DNA. The 41 proteins of this family encoded in the Arabidopsis genome fall into 19 distinct subfamilies. Although most of the plant Snf2 proteins studied so far retain the functional… (More)
