During S phase in eukaryotes, assembly of chromatin on daughter strands is thought to be coupled to DNA replication. However, conflicting evidence exists concerning the role of the highly conserved core histone tail domains in this process. Here we present a novel in vivo labeling technique that was used to examine the role of the amino-terminal tails of the H2A/H2B dimer in replication-coupled assembly in live cells. Our results show that these domains are dispensable for nuclear import but at… CONTINUE READING
