Gene Symbol:

Gene Name:
H2A.Z variant histone 1

H2Az , H2A.z , H2A.Z1 , h2afz ( Add synonyms , Nomenclature history )

Gene Function:
chromatin structure

Protein Function :
Variant histone H2A which replaces conventional H2A in a subset of nucleosomes. Nucleosomes wrap and compact DNA into chromatin, limiting DNA accessibility to the cellular machineries which require DNA...[+]
