Increased nuclear factor 1 binding to its nucleosomal site mediated by sequence-dependent DNA structure.

The organization of DNA into chromatin is important in the regulation of transcription, by influencing the access of transcription factors to their DNA binding sites. Nuclear factor 1 (NF-1) is a transcription factor which binds to DNA constitutively and which interacts with its cognate DNA site with high affinity. However, this affinity is drastically… (More)
