The methylated DNA binding protein-2-H1 (MDBP-2-H1), present in rooster liver, is a member of the histone H1 family which inhibits transcription by binding selectively to methylated promoters. Here we have determined the primary structure of MDBP-2-H1. A comparison between histone H1 and MDBP-2-H1 was achieved by analyzing reversed phase HPLC-purified and V8-digested proteins by mass spectrometry and/or microsequencing. In rooster liver the most abundant histone H1 subtypes are H1 01 and H1 11L… CONTINUE READING
