Previous GeneCards Identifiers for HILS1 Gene
This locus is the ortholog of a mouse protein-coding gene that displays characteristics of a linker histone and is expressed in nuclei of late maturing spermatids. The human locus is expressed; however, the open reading frame has been disrupted by a frameshift so it is unlikely to encode a functional protein. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2008]
