Gene: Hist2h4a (histone cluster 2 H4 family member A) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Hist2h4a
Name: histone cluster 2 H4 family member A
Description: Predicted to have protein domain specific binding activity. Predicted to be involved in DNA replication-dependent nucleosome assembly; DNA replication-independent nucleosome assembly; and negative regulation of megakaryocyte differentiation. Predicted to localize to nuclear nucleosome. Orthologous to human H4C4 (H4 clustered histone 4); INTERACTS WITH ammonium chloride; 2,3',4,4',5-Pentachlorobiphenyl (ortholog); 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine (ortholog).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: MODEL
Also known as: histone cluster 2, H4; histone H4; LOC502913; RGD1565073; similar to germinal histone H4 gene
