The association of DNA with histones results in a nucleoprotein complex called chromatin that consists of repetitive nucleosomal subunits. Nucleosomes are joined together in the chromatin fiber by short stretches of linker DNA that interact with a wide diversity of linker H1 histones involved in chromatin compaction and dynamics. Although the long-term evolution of the H1 family has been the subject of different studies during the last 5 years, the lack of molecular data on replication… CONTINUE READING
