    HP1g recombinant protein

    Other names

    CBX3, HECH, HP1 gamma

    Target description

    HP1 gamma (UniProt/Swiss-Prot entry Q13185) is a component of heterochromatin. It recognizes and binds to histone H3 tails methylated at 'Lys-9', leading to epigenetic repression of transcription. HP1g may also interact with lamin B receptor (LBR), thereby contributing to the association of the heterochromatin with the inner nuclear membrane. HP1g is recruited to sites of ultraviolet-induced DNA damage and double-strand breaks and may be associated with microtubules and mitotic poles during mitosis.
