Previous HGNC Symbols for H3-2 Gene
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 a member of the H3 family, but is found outside of the histone cluster. There is evidence that it is transcribed and has an intact CDS, but residue changes in the protein suggest that it may be on its way to becoming a psuedogene. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2019]
