Histone-based self-assembly into DNA-wrapped meso-clusters.


The recent discovery of meso-cluster phase includes not only colloidal molecules of synthetic polymer particles but also equilibrium protein clusters. Here we report self-assembly of histone protein into stable submicron clusters that can be generated even in centrifuged supernatants containing no initial aggregates. Furthermore, dark-field microscopy of… (More)
