Gene: NAP1L2 (nucleosome assembly protein 1 like 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: NAP1L2
Name: nucleosome assembly protein 1 like 2
Description: Predicted to have chromatin binding activity and histone binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including nucleosome assembly; positive regulation of histone acetylation; and regulation of stem cell division. Predicted to localize to the nucleus.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: BPX; brain specific gene BPX; brain-specific protein, X-linked; MGC26243; nucleosome assembly protein 1-like 2
