Histones are basic nuclear proteins responsible for nucleosome structure of the chromosomal fiber in eukaryotes. Two;molecules of each of the four core histones (H2A, H2B, H3, and H4) form an octamer, around which approximately 146 bp;of DNA is wrapped in repeating units, called nucleosomes. The linker histone, H1, interacts with linker DNA between;nucleosomes and functions in the compaction of chromatin into higher order structures. This gene is intronless and;encodes a member of the histone H1 family. Transcripts from this gene lack polyA tails but instead contain a;palindromic termination element. This gene is found in the large histone gene cluster on chromosome 6.
