Gene: H2BU2P (H2B.U histone 2, pseudogene) Homo sapiens
Symbol: H2BU2P
Name: H2B.U histone 2, pseudogene
Description: 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 histone pseudogene found on chromosome 1. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2015]
