Protein Information
Synonyms TSH2B
Function Variant histone specifically required to direct the transformation of dissociating nucleosomes to protamine in male germ cells. Entirely replaces classical histone H2B prior nucleosome to protamine transition and probably acts as a nucleosome dissociating factor that creates a more dynamic chromatin, facilitating the large-scale exchange of histones. Also expressed maternally and is present in the female pronucleus, suggesting a similar role in protamine replacement by nucleosomes at fertilization (By similarity). Also found in fat cells, its function and the presence of post-translational modifications specific to such cells are still unclear. 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 role in transcription regulation, DNA repair, DNA replication and chromosomal stability. DNA accessibility is regulated via a complex set of post-translational modifications of histones, also called histone code, and nucleosome remodeling.
Cellular Location Nucleus. Chromosome.
Tissue Location Mainly expressed in testis, and the corresponding protein is also present in mature sperm (at protein level). Also found in some fat cells

Histones are basic nuclear proteins that are responsiblefor the nucleosome structure of the chromosomal fiber ineukaryotes. Nucleosomes consist of approximately 146 bp of DNAwrapped around a histone octamer composed of pairs of each of thefour core histones (H2A, H2B, H3, and H4). The chromatin fiber isfurther compacted through the interaction of a linker histone, H1,with the DNA between the nucleosomes to form higher order chromatinstructures. This gene is intronless and encodes atestis/sperm-specific member of the histone H2B family. Transcriptsfrom this gene contain a palindromic termination element. [providedby RefSeq].
