We previously reported not only that chicken HIRA, a homolog of Saccharomyces cerevisiae transcriptional corepressors Hir1p and Hir2p, possesses seven WD dipeptide motifs and a LXXLL motif in its N-terminal half and C-terminal half, respectively, but also that the N-terminal and C-terminal halves, respectively, bind to CAF-1p48 and HDAC-1 and -2 in vitro. Seven WD dipeptide motifs in the N-terminal half of HIRA are required for the in vitro interaction with CAF-1p48. The LXXLL motif at… CONTINUE READING
