dc.description.abstractProtein-protein interactions between the human linker histone protein hH1, which plays a key role in controlling chromatin dynamics in human cells, and other core histone proteins hH2A, hH2B, hH3 and hH4, have been analyzed using the two-component split-ubiquitin system. hH1 has been shown to interact specifically with hH3 and hH4. These interactions have been confirmed by co-immunoprecipitation inside HEK293 cells as well. Molecular modeling has helped us to visualize these interactions in the context of the nucleosomal core particle. Moreover a high throughput method for screening of interacting partners for human linker histone inside human cells has been developed. This has been achieved by adapting the split-ubiquitin system in human HT1080HPRT- cells using Adeno-Associated Viral particles for delivery and expression of a potential human cDNA library.
