Domain

Histone H2A, C-terminal domain (IPR032454)

Short name: Histone_H2A_C

Domain relationships

None.

Description

Histone H2A is a small, highly conserved nuclear protein that, together with two molecules each of histones H2B, H3 and H4, forms the eukaryotic nucleosome core [PMID: 8121801]; the nucleosome octamer winds ~146 DNA base-pairs. In the mouse, histone H2A can be replaced by histone H2A-like 1 [PMID: 17261847].

This entry represents the C-terminal domain of Histone H2A.
