A recombinant clone containing human histone genes has been isolated. The clone, λHH-01, was selected from a genomal library using chicken histone cDNA and a cloned fragment containing chicken histone genes as probes. Sub-clones from λHH-01 have been mapped and coding regions located with cDNA. The human H3 gene has been identified by DNA sequence analysis.
