Putative DNA-binding (bihelical) motif predicted to be involved in chromosomal organisation
SMART accession number:SM00513
Description: -
Interpro abstract (IPR003034):

The SAP (after SAF-A/B, Acinus and PIAS) motif is a putative DNA binding domain found in diverse nuclear proteins involved in chromosomal organisation [(PUBMED:10694879)], including in apoptosis [(PUBMED:10490026)]. In yeast, SAP is found in the most distal N-terminal region of E3 SUMO-protein ligase SIZ1, where it is involved in nuclear localization [(PUBMED:16109721)].

GO function:nucleic acid binding (GO:0003676)
