  • Earlier studies on the H4 autonomously replicating sequence (ARS) identified a DNA unwinding element (DUE), a required sequence that is hypersensitive to single-strand-specific nucleases and serves to facilitate origin unwinding. Here we demonstrate that a DUE can be identified in the C2G1 ARS, a chromosomal replication origin, by using a computer program that calculates DNA helical stability from the base sequence. The helical stability minima correctly predict the location and hierarchy of… CONTINUE READING
