Regulation of Replication Fork Progression Through Histone Supply and Demand

Groth, Anja; Corpet, Armelle; Cook, Adam; Roche, Daniele; Bartek, Jiri; Lukas, Jiri; Almouzni, Genevieve


DNA replication in eukaryotes requires nucleosome disruption ahead of the replication fork and reassembly behind. An unresolved issue concerns how histone dynamics are coordinated with fork progression to maintain chromosomal stability. Here, we characterize a complex in which the human histone chaperone Asf1 and MCM2-7, the putative replicative helicase, are connected through a histone H3-H4 bridge. Depletion of Asf1 by RNA interference impedes DNA unwinding at replication sites, and similar...[Show more]
