|Function||DNA binding proteins that associates with chromatin and has the ability to bend DNA. Binds preferentially single-stranded DNA. Involved in V(D)J recombination by acting as a cofactor of the RAG complex. Acts by stimulating cleavage and RAG protein binding at the 23 bp spacer of conserved recombination signal sequences (RSS). Heparin-binding protein that has a role in the extension of neurite-type cytoplasmic processes in developing cells (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus. Chromosome.|

High-mobility group box 1 protein (HMGB1) is a nuclear DNA-binding protein, which also functions as a pleiotropic cytokine, implicated in the pathology of several different immune-mediated diseases (1). As a nuclear protein, HMGB1 stabilizes nucleosomes and allows bending of DNA that facilitates gene transcription. Recent studies identified extracellular HMGB1 as a potent macrophage-activating factor, signaling via the receptor for advanced glycation end-products to induce inflammatory responses. HMGB1 mediates endotoxin lethality, acute lung injury, arthritis induction, activation of macrophages, smooth muscle cell chemotaxis, and epithelial cell barrier dysfunction (2).
