  • Chromosome Condensation The forces that shape the structure of the highly condensed metaphase chromosomes seen during cell division in eukaryotes are still largely unknown. In vitro evidence suggests that the amino-terminal tails of the histones—such as interaction of the histone H4 tail with H2A-H2B—play an important role in chromosome hypercondensation. Wilkins et al. (p. 77) used ultraviolet cross-linker amino acids in the histones of bakers' yeast to show that during early mitosis… CONTINUE READING
