Comments [?]

Function Binds double-stranded DNA tightly but without sequence specificity. It is distributed uniformly and abundantly on the chromosome, suggesting a role in chromatin architecture. However, it does not significantly compact DNA. Binds rRNA and mRNA in vivo. May play a role in maintaining the structural and functional stability of RNA, and, perhaps, ribosomes.
Subunit Homotetramer.
Subcellular location Cytoplasm. Chromosome.
Ptm Acetylated. Deacetylation by the SIR2-homolog deacetylase may regulate its activity.
Similarity Belongs to the histone-like Alba family.
