The yeast SWI/SNF ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling complex was first identified and characterized over 10 years ago (F. Winston and M. Carlson. 1992. Trends Genet. 8: 387-391.) Since then, the number of distinct ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling complexes and the variety of roles they play in nuclear processes have become dizzying (J.A. Martens and F. Winston. 2003. Curr. Opin. Genet. Dev. 13: 136-142; A. Vacquero et al. 2003. Sci. Aging Knowledge Environ. 2003: RE4)--and that does not even… CONTINUE READING
