The histone chaperone Asf1 increases the rate of histone eviction at the yeast PHO5 and PHO8 promoters.


Eukaryotic gene expression starts off from a largely obstructive chromatin substrate that has to be rendered accessible by regulated mechanisms of chromatin remodeling. The yeast PHO5 promoter is a well known example for the contribution of positioned nucleosomes to gene repression and for extensive chromatin remodeling in the course of gene induction… (More)
