Shadow play: Heterochromatin protein 1a (HP1a) homodimerizes via its chromo shadow domain (CSD; black curve). HP2 is a non-histone chromosomal protein that binds to HP1a CSD dimers with two orders of magnitude tighter affinity (red curve) than the piRNA-interacting protein PIWI (blue curve). Such HP2 affinity can drive the dimerization of the HP1a CSD.
