Gene Symbol: h2axl

Gene Name: H2A.X variant histone-like

Synonyms: h2a/x , h2a.x , h2afxl ( Add synonyms , Nomenclature history )

Gene Function: chromatin structure

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...[+]
