Official Full Name
Homo sapiens histone cluster 1, H2aa DNA.
Histones are basic nuclear proteins that are responsible for the nucleosome structure of the chromosomal fiber in;eukaryotes. Nucleosomes consist of approximately 146 bp of DNA wrapped around a histone octamer composed of pairs of;each of the four core histones (H2A, H2B, H3, and H4). The chromatin fiber is further compacted through the;interaction of a linker histone, H1, with the DNA between the nucleosomes to form higher order chromatin structures.;This gene is intronless and encodes a member of the histone H2A family. Transcripts from this gene contain a;palindromic termination element.
