27098497 CRL4(Wdr70) regulates H2B monoubiquitination and facilitates Exo1-dependent DNA repair resection.
26974126 The 2.7-A-resolution crystal structure of the human YL1-H2A.Z-H2B complex shows that YL1 binding, similarly to ANP32E binding, triggers an extension of the H2A.Z alphaC helix.
26904685 All cases with ARID1A expression are overlapped with H2B high expression. Among 15 cases with ARID1A and H2B coexpression, 13 are invasive ductal carcinoma and 2 are mucinous carcinoma. Our results indicate that ARID1A gene may be involved in carcinogenesis of some subtypes of breast cancer.
26852132 Gene expression analysis identified deregulation of histone H2A and H2B genes in all four cell lines ;histone pathways are associated with epirubicin resistance
26424599 Study provides the first observation of the proteolytic processing of histones H2B and H3 in human hepatocytes where four different clipping sites were localized in H3 and one in H2B.
26240340 analysis of a functional hotspot on ubiquitin that is required for the stimulation of human Dot1
25049226 Results show that the cotranscriptional ubiquitylation of histone H2B suggests that it may be more intimately involved in ongoing nucleosome turnover in the wake of Pol II.
24837678 H2B K34 ubiquitylation by the MOF-MSL complex is part of the protein networks involved in early steps of transcription elongation.
24339737 Knockdown of EZH2 increased the ubiquitination level of H2BK120.
22967069 Autoimmunity to isoAsp histone H2B suggests that this form of the autoantigen may be critical in the induction of anti-histone autoantibodies in human SLE.
