The genes for the histone proteins are very highly conserved across eukaryotes, reflecting their importance in DNA packaging. The histone family consists of five groups of proteins, histones H1, H2A, H2B, H3 and H4. An examination of their amino acid content gives us clues as to how the histones fulfil their role in DNA packaging. Rather like the polyamines in bacteria, these proteins are highly positively charged, with up to 20% of their amino acids being lysine or arginine, the charged side
