High mobility group protein HMGA, plant (IPR031059)

Short name: HMGA_plant

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

None.

Family relationships

None.

Description

The plant high mobility group (HMG) proteins can be grouped into two families: HMGB (HMG 1/2) and HMGA (HMG I/Y). This entry represents the HMGA family from plants. HMGA binds specifically to AT-rich DNA through its AT-hook DNA binding motifs and is involved in diverse nuclear and cellular processes including chromatin organisation, DNA repair and gene transcription [PMID: 19781672, PMID: 17114349]. HMGA has been shown to bind four-way junction DNA [PMID: 12504903].
