Gene Symbol:

Gene Name:
H2A.Z variant histone 2

h2av , h2AZ.2 , h2afv ( 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...[+]
