On 7/3/2019, this gene was changed from h2afx to h2afxl to designate that it is a like gene.
Human symbol has changed for gene page ID: 855943 From h2afxl to h2aX
Human symbol has changed for Entrez Gene: 3014. From H2AFX to H2AX
Human name has changed for Entrez Gene: 3014. From H2A histone family member X to H2A.X variant histone
08.26.19 As Xenopus follows human nomenclature, XB kept the 'like' designation, so new name is H2A.X variant histone-like, and new symbol for Xenopus gene is h2axl
Morpholinos have been designed for this gene with sequences
