A new link for a linker histone

Mol Cell. 2003 Jun;11(6):1421-3. doi: 10.1016/s1097-2765(03)00238-7.

Abstract

Classically, the functions of linker histones (histones H1 and variants) have been related mainly to chromatin organization and the ensuing consequences on transcription. Remarkably, yeast histone H1 may not comply, as it appears to regulate homologous recombination specifically.
