The protein encoded by this gene binds nucleosomal DNA and is associated with transcriptionally active chromatin. Along with a similar protein, HMG17, the encoded protein may help maintain an open chromatin configuration around transcribable genes. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2011]
GeneCards Summary for HMGN1 Gene
HMGN1 (High Mobility Group Nucleosome Binding Domain 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are ERK Signaling and Chromatin Regulation / Acetylation. GO annotations related to this gene include chromatin binding and nucleosomal DNA binding.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for HMGN1 Gene
Binds to the inner side of the nucleosomal DNA thus altering the interaction between the DNA and the histone octamer. May be involved in the process which maintains transcribable genes in a unique chromatin conformation. Inhibits the phosphorylation of nucleosomal histones H3 and H2A by RPS6KA5/MSK1 and RPS6KA3/RSK2 (By similarity).
