Lua error in Module:Infobox_gene at line 43: attempt to index field 'wikibase' (a nil value). Histone H2A.V is a protein that in humans is encoded by the H2AFV gene.[1]

Histones are basic nuclear proteins that are responsible for the nucleosome structure of the chromosomal fiber in eukaryotes. Nucleosomes consist of approximately 146 bp of DNA wrapped around a histone octamer composed of pairs of each of the four core histones (H2A, H2B, H3, and H4). The chromatin fiber is further compacted through the interaction of a linker histone, H1, with the DNA between the nucleosomes to form higher order chromatin structures. This gene encodes a member of the histone H2A family. Several transcripts have been identified for this gene.[1]
