Functioni

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.

Post-translational modificationi

Monoubiquitinated by the rhp6/ubc2-bre1 complex to form H2BK123ub1. H2BK123ub1 gives a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional activation and is also prerequisite for H3K4me and H3K79me formation. H2BK123ub1 also modulates the formation of double-strand breaks during meiosis and is a prerequisite for DNA-damage checkpoint activation (By similarity).By similarity
Phosphorylated by shk1 to form H2BS10ph during progression through meiotic prophase. May be correlated with chromosome condensation (By similarity).By similarity
Acetylation of N-terminal lysines and particularly formation of H2BK11ac has a positive effect on transcription.By similarity
Sumoylation to form H2BK6su or H2BK7su occurs preferentially near the telomeres and represses gene transcription.By similarity

Interactioni

Subunit structurei

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. Interacts with rik1.1 Publication

Caution

To ensure consistency between histone entries, we follow the 'Brno' nomenclature for histone modifications, with positions referring to those used in the literature for the 'closest' model organism. Due to slight variations in histone sequences between organisms and to the presence of initiator methionine in UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot sequences, the actual positions of modified amino acids in the sequence generally differ. In this entry the following conventions are used: H2BK6ac = acetylated Lys-6; H2BK6su = sumoylated Lys-6; H2BK7ac = acetylated Lys-7; H2BK7su = sumoylated Lys-7; H2BS10ph = phosphorylated Ser-10; H2BK11ac = acetylated Lys-11; H2BK123ub1 = monoubiquitinated Lys-120.Curated
