The functional gene coding for nonhistone chromosomal protein HMG-17, a nucleosomal binding protein that may confer unique properties to the chromatin structure of active genes, has been mapped to band 1p36.1. The multiple, nonfunctional, HMG-17 retropseudogenes are scattered over several chromosomes.
