Unspinning chromatin: molecular mechanisms of chromatin remodeling
How do you fit two meters of DNA in a tiny compartment and at the same time are able to access the right parts of it at the right times?
DNA folded in compliant helix
In an Advance Online Publication biophysicist John van Noort and others show using magnetic tweezers that DNA is folded in compliant helices of chromatin. This allows enzymes access to the DNA needed for gene expression. Van Noort's research group made the discovery in close partnership with researchers…
