High mobility group (HMG) proteins are a superfamily of abundant and ubiquitous nuclear proteins that bind DNA without sequence specificity and induce structural changes to the chromatin fiber to regulate access to the underlying DNA. The HMGN family of proteins, which includes five members (HMGN1-5), is characterized by the presence of several conserved protein domains: a positively charged domain, a nucleosome binding domain, and an acidic C-terminal chromatin-unfolding domain (1,2). HMGN proteins function in transcriptional regulation and are recruited to gene promoters by transcription factors, such as estrogen receptor α (ERα), serum responsive factor (SRF), and PITX2, where they can facilitate either gene activation or repression (3-5). HMGN proteins bind specifically to nucleosomal DNA and reduce the compaction of the chromatin fiber, in part by competing with linker histone H1 for nucleosome binding (6). In addition, HMGN proteins act to modulate local levels of post-translational histone modifications, decreasing phosphorylation of histone H3 at Ser10 and histone H2A at Ser1 and increasing acetylation of histone H3 at Lys14 (7-9). HMGN proteins can also modulate the activity of several chromatin-remodeling factors and restrict nucleosome mobility (10).

HMGN2 (also known as HMG17) expression is tightly linked to cellular differentiation. HMGN2 is ubiquitous and highly expressed in all embryonic tissues. During mouse embryogenesis, expression is down-regulated throughout the embryo, except in committed, continuously renewing cell types undergoing active differentiation, such as the basal layer of the epithelium and kidney cells undergoing mesenchyme to epithelium transition (11,12). In addition to its function in regulating chromatin structure in the nucleus, HMGN2 also plays a role in innate immunity against bacterial pathogens and tumor cells. Leukocytes, which play a central role in the innate immune defense in mammals by secreting an array of antimicrobial proteins and peptides, secrete HMGN2 upon stimulation with interleukin 2 (IL-2). Following stimulation, HMGN2 translocates from the nucleus to the cytoplasm and is released into the extracellular environment (13). HMGN2, more specifically the alpha-helical domain (residues 18 to 48), shows strong antimicrobial activity towards multiple bacterial pathogens (13). In addition, the amino-terminus of HMGN2 has been shown to contain tumor homing activity, while the carboxy-terminal region inhibits tumor invasion and metastasis (14,15).

High mobility group (HMG)蛋白是一个大量和广泛的细胞核蛋白超级家族,该家族在没有序列特异性的情况下结合DNA,并且诱导染色质纤维的结构性改变从而调节潜在的DNA通路。HMGN 蛋白家族包括五种成员(HMGN1-5),它是以数种保守蛋白结构域存在为特征:一个正电荷区域、一个核小体结合区域和一个酸性的C端染色质-非折叠区域(1,2)。HMGN蛋白具有转录调节的功能,并且通过转录因子被招募到基因启动子,例如 estrogen receptor alpha (ERα)、serum responsive factor (SRF)和PITX2蛋白,在启动子区域能有助于基因的激活或抑制(3-5)。HMGN蛋白特异性结合到核小体结构的DNA,并且减少染色质纤维的压缩,对于核小体的结合部分程度上通过竞争histone H1(6)。此外,HMGN蛋白可以调节翻译后组蛋白修饰的局部水平,这减少了histone H3蛋白Ser10位点和histone H2A蛋白Ser1位点的磷酸化,以及增加了histone H3蛋白Lys14位点的乙酰化(7-9)。HMGN蛋白也能调节数个染色质重塑因子的活性和限制核小体移动(10)。

HMGN2 (也称为HMG17)蛋白表达是与细胞内分化紧密联系。在所有胚胎组织中HMGN2蛋白是个广泛和高度表达。在小鼠胚胎发育过程中,蛋白表达在整个胚胎都是下调的,除了在已确定的持续经历积极分化的自我更新细胞形态中,例如上皮细胞和肾脏细胞的基底层经历上皮间质的转变(11,12)。除了在调节细胞核内染色质结构的功能外,HMGN2蛋白也在针对细菌性病原体和肿瘤细胞的自身免疫中起到重要作用。在哺乳动物天然免疫防御中通过分泌大量抗菌的蛋白和多肽而起到重要作用的白细胞,它在interleukin 2 (IL-2)的刺激下分泌HMGN2蛋白。在刺激下,HMGN2蛋白从从细胞核中转移到细胞质中,并被释放进入细胞外环境(13)。HMGN2蛋白含有明确的 alpha-helical 区域 (residues 18 to 48),它显示对于多种细胞病原体的强烈的抗菌活性(13)。因此,研究显示HMGN2蛋白的氨基端包含肿瘤导向活性,而它的羧基端区域抑制肿瘤入侵和转移(14,15)。
