BIOCHIMICA ET BIOPHYSICA ACTA. GENE REGULATORY MECHANISMS
In the post-genomic era, and with the advent of proteomic tools for the identification of protein-protein interactions, the number of HMGA molecular partners has increased rapidly. This has led to the extension of our knowledge of the functional involvement of HMGA from the transcriptional regulation field to RNA processing, DNA repair, and chromatin remodeling and dynamics. This review focuses mainly on the protein-protein interaction network of HMGA and its functional outcome. HMGA molecular partners have been functionally classified and all the information collected in a freely available database (http://www.bbcm.units.it/∼manfiol/INDEX.HTM).
