Studies in Drosophila melanogaster have revealed paradigms for regulating gene expression through chromatin structure, including mechanisms of gene activation and silencing. Regulation occurs at the level of individual genes, chromosomal domains, and entire chromosomes. The chromatin state is dynamic, allowing for changes in gene expression in response to cellular signals and/or environmental cues. Changes in chromatin result from the action of ATP-dependent chromatin-remodeling complexes… CONTINUE READING
