Gene Symbol: h4c4

Gene Name: H4 clustered histone 4

Synonyms: hist1h4l , histone H4 , hist1h4d ( Add synonyms , Nomenclature history )

Gene Function: Histone H4

Protein Function :
Core component of nucleosome. Nucleosomes wrap and compact DNA into chromatin, limiting DNA accessibility to the cellular machineries which require DNA as a template. Histones thereby play a central ro...[+]
