Eukaryotic DNA is organized into a structural polymer called chromatin which ultimately controls important DNA processing functions such as transcription, DNA repair and DNA replication. The fundamental unit of chromatin is the nucleosome which is made up of about 146 base pairs wrapped around a histone core. The histone core contains 2 copies each of the histones H2A, H2B, H3 and H4. Long strings of nucleosomes compact into higher order structures which are not well known, but play a pivotal… CONTINUE READING
