Several media, including Quo Magazine, have echoed the research headed by Ferran Azorín, CSIC research professor and group leader of the Chromatin Structure and Function laboratory at IRB Barcelona. The study reveals why histone 1 is a major protection factor against genomic instability and a vital protein for the organism.
Published in Nature Communications, this work explains for the first time that the suppression of histone 1 causes cell damage and genomic instability (DNA damage).
