Hist2h2aa1

Gene
Hist2h2aa1
Protein
Histone H2A type 2-A
Organism
Mus musculus
Length
130 amino acids
Function
Core component of nucleosome. Nucleosomes wrap and compact DNA into chromatin, limiting DNA accessibility to the cellular machineries which require DNA as a template. Histones thereby play a central role in transcription regulation, DNA repair, DNA replication and chromosomal stability. DNA accessibility is regulated via a complex set of post-translational modifications of histones, also called histone code, and nucleosome remodeling.
Similarity
Belongs to the histone H2A family.
