H2BFM (H2B Histone Family, Member M) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are RNA Polymerase I Promoter Opening and RNA Polymerase I Promoter Opening. GO annotations related to this gene include protein heterodimerization activity. An important paralog of this gene is H2BFWT.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for H2BFM Gene
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
