Mi-2/NuRD complex function is required for normal S phase progression and assembly of pericentric heterochromatin

During chromosome duplication, it is essential to replicate not only the DNA sequence, but also the complex nucleoprotein structures of chromatin. Pericentric heterochromatin is critical for silencing repetitive elements and plays an essential structural role during mitosis. However, relatively little is understood about its assembly and maintenance during… CONTINUE READING
