Abstract

The structural characteristics of the three nuclear phosphoproteins of the high mobility group A family are outlined and related to their participation in chromatin structure alteration in many biological processes such as gene expression, neoplastic transformation, differentiation, and apoptosis. The elevated expression of these proteins in tumor cells and their post-translational modifications, such as phosphorylation, acetylation and methylation, are discussed and suggested as suitable targets for cancer chemotherapy.
