Chromatin: Structure and Function provides the reader with a concise and coherent account of the nature, structure, and assembly of chromatin and its active involvement in the processes of DNA transcription, replication and repair.

In the context of chromatin, “higher-order structure” may be defined as any assemblage of nucleosomes that assumes a reproducible conformation in 3D space. The most obvious chromatin higher-order structure is the mitotic/meiotic chromosome in which the DNA is compacted s to 20,fold.

In eukaryotes, the genetic material is packaged into a higher-order structure called chromatin. Chromatin is composed of DNA, histone, and nonhistone proteins as well as noncoding RNAs and organizes the genetic material into district chromosomes. The higher-order structure of chromatin partitions the eukaryotic genome into distinct functional domains, which affect gene expression and chromosome stability.

Specific interactions between individual nucleosomes drive the folding of a nucleosomal array (the primary structure of chromatin) into the 30 nm fiber (a secondary structure) Cited by: ), to the outer surface of the nucleosome, and various non-histone proteins to the “linker” region of the DNA.

The latter is not shown in the diagram below. The “beads on a string” chromatin “fiber” is about. 10 nm in diameter. (2) This compacted “beads on a string” structure is now twisted to form a thicker “fiber” that is. hand, these marks may directly affect chromatin structure.

Core histone acetylation [7] for instance helps to relax the higher-order chromatin structure and transiently allows DNA accessibility. This code may then be passed on from one cell generation to the next as an epigenetic ‘‘memory’’ of transcriptional programs, the epigenome [8].

Higher order chromatin structure. The 10 nm fiber composed of nucleosomal cores and spacers is folded into higher order structures for much of the DNA in chromatin. In fact, the 10 nm fiber with the beads-on-a-string appearance in the electron microscope was prepared at very low salt concentrations and is free of histone H1.
