The HMG Chromosomal Proteins focuses on various research on HMG proteins, particularly their association with active genes.
Composed of literature of authors that are divided into 10 chapters, the book starts with the discussions on the history and problems in the study of chromosomal proteins. The text proceeds with the discussions on the occurrence of HMG proteins in eukaryotes; tissue specificity of HMG proteins; and species specificity and evolution of HMG proteins.
The book presents techniques that are used to analyze HMG proteins and provides information on the primary structures of different proteins, such as HMG 14 and HMG 17, and the methods for cleaving these proteins. The processes involved in isolating proteins and postsynthetic modifications of their structures are noted, clarified with the study done on the HMG proteins of rainbow trout. The text ends with discussions on the association of HMG proteins with chromatin and nucleosomes and a tabulation of accumulated data.
This selection is valuable for readers interested in studying HMG proteins.
