Elucidating mechanisms controlling nuclear processes requires an understanding of the nucleoprotein structure of genes at endogenous chromosomal loci. Traditional approaches to measuring protein-DNA interactions in vitro have often failed to provide insights into physiological mechanisms. Given that most transcription factors interact with simple DNA sequence motifs, which are abundantly distributed throughout a genome, it is essential to pinpoint the small subset of sites bound by factors in… CONTINUE READING
