Histone H2A is one of the 5 main histone proteins involved in the structure of chromatin in eukaryotic cells. Featuring a main globular domain and a long N terminal tail H2A is involved with the structure of the nucleosomes of the 'beads on a string' structure.
H2A is coded by many genes in the human genome, including:
|General||Karyotype - Ploidy - Meiosis|
|Classification||Autosome - Sex chromosome|
|Evolution||Chromosomal inversion - Chromosomal translocation - Polyploidy - Paleopolyploidy|
|Structure||Chromatin (Euchromatin, Heterochromatin) Nucleosome - Telomere - Chromatid|
