Domain

Ubinuclein middle domain (IPR026947)

Short name: UBN_middle_dom

Domain relationships

None.

Description

Ubinuclein 1 and 2 (UBN1, UBN2) are members of a histone chaperone complex involved in the formation of a certain type of facultative heterochromatin, called senescence-associated heterochromatin foci (SAHF) [PMID: 19029251, PMID: 19225618]. The domain described here is conserved in many eukaryotes such as human, rat, drosophila, and zebra-fish.
