Scanning force microscopy reveals ellipsoid shape of chicken erythrocyte nucleosomes.

Abstract

Scanning force microscopy was used to investigate the conformation of hypotonic spread chicken erythrocyte nucleosomes. Nucleosomal chains were prepared in low-salt conditions and fixed before centrifugation onto glass coverslips and air drying. The images of single nucleosomes were isolated by image processing, and the height and geometry of the resulting… (More)
