  Domain Name: H15
linker histone 1 and histone 5 domains; the basic subunit of chromatin is the nucleosome, consisting of an octamer of core histones, two full turns of DNA, a linker histone (H1 or H5) and a variable length of linker DNA; H1/H5 are chromatin-associated proteins that bind to the exterior of nucleosomes and dramatically stabilize the highly condensed states of chromatin fibers; stabilization of higher order folding occurs through electrostatic neutralization of the linker DNA segments, through a highly positively charged carboxy- terminal domain known as the AKP helix (Ala, Lys, Pro); thought to be involved in specific protein-protein and protein-DNA interactions and play a role in suppressing core histone tail domain acetylation in the chromatin fiber
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.

Total Mutations Found: 2
Total Disease Mutations Found: 0
This domain occurred 8 times on human genes (8 proteins).

 If you've navigated here from a protein, hovering over a position on the weblogo will display the corresponding protein position for that domain position.

 The histograms below the weblogo indicate mutations found on the domain. Red is for disease (OMIM) and blue is for SNPs.

 Functional Features are displayed as orange boxes under the histograms. You can choose which features are displayed in the box below.
