Abstract
INtegrase Interactor 1 protein (INI1/hSNF5) or BRG1-associated factor 47 (BAF47) is a SWI/SNF-related matrix associated actin dependent regulator of chromatin subfamily B member. DNA binding domain of INI1/ hSNF5 is cloned into E.coli expression vectors, pET32a and purified as a monomer using size exclusion chromatography. NMR data show that INI1DBD has folded state with high population of α-helices. By fluorescence-quenching experiments, binding affinities between INI1DBD and two double stranded DNA fragments were determined as 29.9 ± 2.6 μM (GAL4_1) and 258.7 ± 5.8 (GAL4_2) μM, respectively. Our data revealed that DNA binding domain of INI1/hSNF5 binds to transcriptional DNA sequences, and it could play an important role as a transcriptional regulator.
