Neural and eye-specific defects associated with loss of the Imitation Switch (ISWI) chromatin remodeler in Xenopus laevis


Imitation Switch (ISWI) is a member of the SWI2/SNF2 superfamily of ATP-dependent chromatin remodelers, which regulate transcription and maintain chromatin structure by mobilizing nucleosomes using the energy of ATP. Four distinct ISWI complexes have been identified in Xenopus oocytes. The developmental role of Xenopus ISWI, however, has not previously been… (More)
