Mammalian somatic type histone variants are replaced or supplemented in early primary spermatocytes and possibly spermatogonia by testis specific and testis enriched histone variants. The testis complement of histones is replaced entirely by transition basic proteins in mid-spermatids. This transition is accompanied by a dramatic reduction of thermal… CONTINUE READING
