There are several members of the high-mobility-group (HMG) of DNA-binding proteins, including HMG-1, HMG-2, HMG-14 and HMG-17 [Johns: The HMG Chromosomal Proteins. Academic Press, London, 1982]. We report here sequences encoding the chicken HMG-2 protein of 207 amino acids (aa). This assignment is made on the basis of available data which indicate 89% homology of the chicken aa sequence to porcine HMG-2. This compares with 78-81% homology to the HMG-1 proteins of rat, hamster, human, porcine, and bovine origin.
