domain in high mobilty group proteins HMG14 and HMG 17
SMART accession number:SM00527
Description: -
Interpro abstract (IPR000079):

High mobility group nucleosome-binding domain-containing proteins are relatively low molecular weight non-histone components in chromatin. The proteins bind to the inner side of the nucleosomal DNA, altering the interaction between the DNA and the histone octamer. It is thought that they may be involved in the process that confers specific chromatin conformations to transcribable regions in the genome [(PUBMED:3754870)].

GO component:chromatin (GO:0000785), nucleus (GO:0005634)
GO function:nucleosomal DNA binding (GO:0031492)
