Chromatin structure of the chicken adult beta-globin gene: is gene activity associated with local or long-range perturbations in chromatin structure?

Abstract

We review our physical studies on the higher-order structure of bulk chromatin. Using the method of electric dichroism, we determine the arrangement of DNA in the 30-nm solenoid or thick chromatin fiber. With few assumptions, our results lead to a detailed model, in which the chromatosomes are arranged radially but tilted approximately 25 degrees from the… (More)
