The role of the histone variant H2A.Z in early Xenopus laevis development
The genome of eukaryotes is packaged into the small volume of the nucleus in an organised manner. This structure of DNA and associated proteins is called chromatin. The basic unit of chromatin is the nucleosome; an octomer of core histone proteins and associated DNA. Other proteins such as linker histones can also associate with the DNA or the core histones. The modular structure of chromatin allows for structural variation with functional consequences including activation or repression of...[Show more]
