HIST2H2BC (Histone Cluster 2, H2bc (Pseudogene)) is a Pseudogene.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for HIST2H2BC 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
