    ..These findings, together with those reported previously on the H2A-V/H2B-II pair, suggest distinct manners of transcription regulation of different members of the chicken histone gene families, H2A and H2B. ..

    ..Deletion or point mutagenesis of the H2B-specific element decreased the levels of H2B and the H2A transcripts indicating that this sequence is a common regulatory element of both genes in the divergent-pair configeration. ..

    ..Results of our sequence analyses, together with those reported previously, generated a set of the core histone amino acid sequences as follows: three H2A variants, four H2B variants, two H3 variants and an H4 protein. ..
