The BAH domain (bromo-associated homology domain) was first identified from a repeated motif found in the nuclear protein polybromo--a large (187 kDa) modular protein comprising six bromodomains, two BAH domains and an HMG box. To date, the BAH domain has no ascribed function, although it is found in a wide range of proteins that contain additional domains involved in either transcriptional regulation (e.g. SET, PHD and bromodomain) and/or DNA binding (HMG box and AT hook). The molecular function of polybromo itself also remains unclear, but it has been identified as a key component of an SWI/SNF (switching/sucrose non-fermenting)-related, ATP-dependent chromatin-remodelling complex PBAF (polybromo, BRG1-associated factors; also known as SWI/SNF-B or SWI/SNFbeta). We present in this paper the crystal structure of the proximal BAH domain from chicken polybromo (BAH1), at a resolution of 1.6 A (1 A=0.1 nm). Structure-based sequence analysis reveals several features that may be involved in mediating protein-protein interactions.
