Gene: H2bc6 (H2B clustered histone 6) Mus musculus
Symbol: H2bc6
Name: H2B clustered histone 6
Description: Histones are basic nuclear proteins that are responsible for the 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 encodes a replication-dependent histone that is a member of the histone H2B family and generates multiple transcripts through alternative splicing, the use of the conserved stem-loop termination motif, and the polyA addition motif.
