We have examined the chromatin structure of the centromere regions of chromosomes III and XI in yeast by using cloned functional centromere DNAs (CEN3 and CEN11) as labeled probes. When chromatin from isolated nuclei is digested with micrococcal nuclease and the resulting DNA fragments separated electrophoretically and blotted to nitrocellulose filters, the… CONTINUE READING
