Previous work has shown that human DEK, a protein of 375 amino acids, has two functional DNA-binding domains, of which one resides in a central part of the molecule and contains sequences corresponding to the scaffold attachment factor-box (SAF-box) domain as found in a growing number of nuclear proteins. Isolated SAF-box peptides (amino acids 137-187) bind weakly to DNA in solution, but when many SAF-box peptides are brought into close proximity on the surface of Sephadex beads, cooperative effects lead to a high affinity to DNA. Furthermore, a peptide (amino acids 87-187) that includes a sequence on the N-terminal side of the SAF-box binds efficiently to DNA. This peptide prefers four-way junction DNA over straight DNA and induces supercoils in relaxed circular DNA just like the full-length DEK. Interestingly, however, the 87-187 amino acid peptide introduces negative supercoils in contrast to the full-length DEK, which is known to introduce positive supercoils. We found that two adjacent regions (amino acids 68-87 and 187-250) are necessary for the formation of positive supercoils. Our data contribute to the ongoing characterization of the abundant and ubiquitous DEK chromatin protein.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Scholten, Ingo</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Kappes, Ferdinand</dc:creator> <dcterms:issued>2005</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>Waldmann, Tanja</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Scholten, Ingo</dc:creator> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:title>The SAF-box domain of chromatin protein DEK</dcterms:title> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2017-05-08T08:43:33Z</dcterms:available> <dc:contributor>Knippers, Rolf</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:contributor>Böhm, Friederike</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Böhm, Friederike</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Matsuo, Hiroshi</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Waldmann, Tanja</dc:contributor> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2017-05-08T08:43:33Z</dc:date> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
