25065453 Glycated-H2A histone is better bound by serum anti-DNA autoantibodies in systemic lupus erythematosus patients, and could be a likely trigger for the disease.
22334663 Our results provide mechanistic insight into how post-translational modification of H2A at the site of a photolesion initiates the repair process and directly affects the stability of the human genome.
21633354 Aurora-B-dependent phosphorylation of condensin promotes its association with histone H2A and H2A.Z, which we identify as conserved chromatin 'receptors' of condensin
21596310 L3MBTL2-specific RNAi resulted in increased expression of target genes that exhibited a significant reduction in H2A lysine 119 monoubiquitination.
20838438 AT1R modify the composition of histone H2A and post-translational modifications.
20599239 HIV-1 Tat activated transcription facilitates removal of histones H2A and H2B at the LTR, and the FACT complex, at least consisting of SPT16 and SSRP1, may be responsible for their removal
19667409 Results demonstrate the potential of C-terminal truncated H2A to contribute to the process of carcinogenesis through epigenetic mechanisms.
19500350 Study demonstrated that RNF168 is endowed with ubiquitin ligase activity both in vitro and in vivo, which targets histones H2A and H2AX, but not H2B, forming K63 polyubiquitin chains.
19385636 The change in nucleosome core particle conformation induced by global histone acetylation is dependent on H2A/H2A.Z acetylation.
18593899 DDB1-CUL4B(DDB2) is more efficient than DDB1-CUL4A(DDB2) in monoubiquitinating histone H2A in vitro.
