Summaries for H2AFZ Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for H2AFZ Gene

  • 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 encodes a replication-independent member of the histone H2A family that is distinct from other members of the family. Studies in mice have shown that this particular histone is required for embryonic development and indicate that lack of functional histone H2A leads to embryonic lethality.

GeneCards Summary for H2AFZ Gene

H2AFZ (H2A Histone Family Member Z) is a Protein Coding gene, and is affiliated with the lncRNA class. Diseases associated with H2AFZ include Testicular Spermatocytic Seminoma and Testis Seminoma. Among its related pathways are Activated PKN1 stimulates transcription of AR (androgen receptor) regulated genes KLK2 and KLK3 and Meiosis. GO annotations related to this gene include protein heterodimerization activity and RNA polymerase II distal enhancer sequence-specific DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is H2AFV.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for H2AFZ Gene

  • Variant histone H2A which replaces conventional H2A in a subset of nucleosomes. 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. May be involved in the formation of constitutive heterochromatin. May be required for chromosome segregation during cell division.

    Molecular mass:
    13553 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • The nucleosome is a histone octamer containing two molecules each of H2A, H2B, H3 and H4 assembled in one H3-H4 heterotetramer and two H2A-H2B heterodimers. The octamer wraps approximately 147 bp of DNA. H2A or its variant H2AFZ forms a heterodimer with H2B. H2AFZ interacts with INCENP (By similarity). Interacts (via M6 cassette) with ANP32E; leading to removal of H2A.Z/H2AFZ from the nucleosome.
