      Background InformationHistone H2B type 3-B (UniProt: Q8N257; also known as H2B type 12) is encoded by the HIST3H2BB gene (Gene ID: 128312) in human. Histones are basic nuclear proteins that are responsible for the nucleosome structure of chromatin in eukaryotes. Two molecules of each of the four core histones (H2A, H2B, H3, and H4) form an octamer, around which DNA is wrapped in repeating units, called nucleosomes, which limits DNA accessibility to the cellular machineries, which require DNA as a template. Histones thereby play a central role in transcription regulation, DNA repair, DNA replication and chromosomal stability. DNA accessibility is regulated via a complex set of post-translational modifications of histones, also called histone code, and nucleosome remodeling. Histone H2B is one of the main histone proteins involved in the structure of chromatin in eukaryotic cells. Featuring a main globular domain and a long N terminal tail, H2B is involved with the structure of the nucleosomes of the 'beads on a string' structure. Histone H2B can be monoubiquitinated on Lysine123 by RAD6/UBC2-BRE1 complex to form H2BK123Ub1 complex that gives a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional activation and is also a prerequisite for H3K4me and H3K79me formation. H2BK123ub1 is reported to modulates the formation of double-strand breaks during meiosis and is a required for DNA-damage checkpoint activation. Histone H2B is phosphorylated by STE20 to form H2BS10ph during progression through meiotic prophase and may be correlated with chromosome condensation. Histone H2B can undergo acetylation by GCN5, a component of the SAGA complex, to form H2BK11ac and H2BK16ac. Acetylation of N-terminal lysines and particularly formation of H2BK11acK16ac has a positive effect on transcription.

      Entrez Gene Number
      Entrez Gene SummaryHistones are basic nuclear proteins that are responsible for the nucleosome structure of the chromosomal fiber in eukaryotes. Nucleosomes consist of approximately 146 bp of DNA wrapped around a histone octamer composed of pairs of each of the four core histones (H2A, H2B, H3, and H4). The chromatin fiber is further compacted through the interaction of a linker histone, H1, with the DNA between the nucleosomes to form higher order chromatin structures. This gene is intronless and encodes a member of the histone H2B family. Transcripts from this gene contain a palindromic termination element.

      UniProt Number
      UniProt SummaryFUNCTION: SwissProt: Q8N257 # Core component of nucleosome. Nucleosomes wrap and compact DNA into chromatin, limiting DNA accessibility to the cellular machineries which require DNA as a template. Histones thereby play a central role in transcription regulation, DNA repair, DNA replication and chromosomal stability. DNA accessibility is regulated via a complex set of post-translational modifications of histones, also called histone code, and nucleosome remodeling.
      SIZE: 126 amino acids; 13908 Da
      SUBUNIT: The nucleosome is a histone octamer containing two molecules each of H2A, H2B, H3 and H4 assembled in one H3-H4 heterotetramer and two H2A-H2B heterodimers. The octamer wraps approximately 147 bp of DNA.
      PTM: Monoubiquitination of Lys-121 by the RNF20/40 complex gives a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional activation and is also prerequisite for histone H3 'Lys-4' and 'Lys-79' methylation. It also functions cooperatively with the FACT dimer to stimulate elongation by RNA polymerase II. & Phosphorylated on Ser-15 by STK4/MST1 during apoptosis; which facilitates apoptotic chromatin condensation. Also phosphorylated on Ser-15 in response to DNA double strand breaks (DSBs), and in correlation with somatic hypermutation and immunoglobulin class- switch recombination.
      SIMILARITY: SwissProt: Q8N257 ## Belongs to the histone H2B family.
      Molecular Weight~17 kDa observed; 13.91 kDa calculated. Uncharacterized bands may be observed in some lysate(s).
