Post-translational modifications of the histone tails and other chromatin binding proteins affect the stability of chromatin structure. In this study, we have purified chromatin from live cell nuclei using a fluorescence activated cell sorter (FACS) and studied the structural stability of this self-assembled structure. Using total internal reflection fluorescence (TIRF) microscopy, we map the effect of covalent modifications on the interaction of histone-DNA complex, by measuring the… CONTINUE READING
