How do H-NS proteins bind bacterial DNA?

The binding of H-NS to the bacterial DNA is initiated by electrostatic interactions between the positive residues on the H-NS linker and the negatively charged DNA. The initial contacts established by the linker then promotes engagement by the C-terminal DNA-binding domain of H-NS proteins.

These findings were published […]
