The number of chromatin modifying and remodeling complexes implicated in genome control is growing faster than our understanding of the functional roles they play. We discuss recent in vitro experiments with biochemically defined chromatin templates that illuminate new aspects of action by histone acetyltransferases and ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling engines in facilitating transcription. We review a number of studies that present an ‘ordered recruitment’ view of transcriptional activation… CONTINUE READING
