This review presents a new conceptual model for the involvement of low molecular flavanols in chromatin remodelling and genome organization. The experiments are based on the property of flavanols to associate with nuclei as revealed by blue staining after treatment with the p-dimethylaminocinnamaldehyde reagent. From a critical standpoint, this puzzling finding is nearly incompatible with current views about nuclear organization. Therefore, it was necessary to collect a whole host of data to… Expand
