Genetic polymorphism of erythrocyte histone H1 in Japanese quail

  title={Genetic polymorphism of erythrocyte histone H1 in Japanese quail},
  author={Jan Pałyga},
  journal={Biochemical Genetics},
Histone H1 from erythrocytes of Japanese quail was resolved in a sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS)-polyacrylamide gel into five fractions differing in apparent molecular weights. A polymorphism of histone H1.1, H1.2, and H1.3 bands was detected among quail individuals. While some birds possessed either a high (phenotype .3+) or a low (phenotype .3+/.3−) level of H1.3, at least half of the quail population lacked this H1 band (phenotype .3−). Appropriate genetic crosses demonstrated that H1.3 behaved… CONTINUE READING
