Interconnection of hierarchical compactization levels as the basis for functional organization of chromatin. Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Recent data on chromatin structural organization are presented. In the light of present concept of chromatin structure the problem of hierarchical levels of DNA packaging within chromatin is discussed. Particular emphasis has been placed on the correlation between the changes occurring at different DNA compactization levels within topological domains and chromatin functional activity.
