Observations on the structure of mechanically stretched chromatin fibrils.

Abstract

During the spreading of human chromosomes prepared from cultured human lymphocytes, the peripheral fibers attaching the chromosome to the support film are mechanically stretched. The stretching reveals structural elements of the fibers; some of these features have been described earlier, for extracted chromatin. The molecule of DNA is bared through… (More)
