The chicken histone gene family.


1. Most of the chicken 43 core and H1 histone genes belong to two major histone gene clusters. 2. Each of six H1 genes encodes a different H1 protein sequence. 3. The known core histone genes, four H2A, seven H2B, and seven H3 genes, respectively, encode two, three and three different protein variants, whereas the four known H4 genes encode the same amino… (More)
