H2A.Z contributes to the unique 3D structure of the centromere
Mammalian centromere function depends upon a specialized chromatin organization where distinct domains of CENP-A and dimethyl K4 histone H3, forming centric chromatin, are uniquely positioned on or near the surface of the chromosome. These distinct domains are embedded in pericentric heterochromatin (characterized by H3 methylated at K9). The mechanisms that underpin this complex spatial organization are unknown. Here, we identify the essential histone variant H2A.Z as a new structural...[Show more]
