Immunohistochemical staining (Formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded sections) of human lung (A), human liver (B) and human heart (C) with HMGB2 polyclonal antibody (Cat # PAB30132) at 4-8 ug/mL working concentration.
This gene encodes a member of the non-histone chromosomal high mobility group protein family. The proteins of this family are chromatin-associated and ubiquitously distributed in the nucleus of higher eukaryotic cells. In vitro studies have demonstrated that this protein is able to efficiently bend DNA and form DNA circles. These studies suggest a role in facilitating cooperative interactions between cis-acting proteins by promoting DNA flexibility. This protein was also reported to be involved in the final ligation step in DNA end-joining processes of DNA double-strand breaks repair and V(D)J recombination. [provided by RefSeq
