Domain

SSRP1 domain (IPR024954)

Short name: SSRP1_dom

Domain relationships

None.

Description

This domain is found in structure-specific recognition protein (SSRP1) and related proteins, which are components of the FACT complex - a general chromatin factor that acts to reorganise nucleosome. The FACT complex is involved in multiple processes that require DNA as a template such as mRNA elongation, DNA replication and DNA repair. During transcription elongation the FACT complex acts as a histone chaperone that both destabilises and restores nucleosomal structure.
