Despite the existence of certain differences between yeast and higher eukaryotic cells a considerable part of our knowledge on chromatin structure and function has been obtained by experimenting on Saccharomyces cerevisiae. One of the peculiarities of S. cerevisiae cells is the unusual and less abundant linker histone, Hho1p. Sparse is the information about Hho1p involvement in yeast higher-order chromatin organization. In an attempt to search for possible effects of Hho1p on the global… CONTINUE READING
