Gene: MACROH2A1 (macroH2A.1 histone) Homo sapiens
Symbol: MACROH2A1
Name: macroH2A.1 histone
CRRD ID: 731902
Description: Exhibits DNA binding activity; protein kinase binding activity; and protein serine/threonine kinase inhibitor activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of macromolecule metabolic process; regulation of gene expression, epigenetic; and regulation of response to oxidative stress. Localizes to nuclear lumen and pericentric heterochromatin.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
