Why some genes are highly expressed

Featured

DNA packagingDavid Shore’s team discovered that all promoters could be classified into two distinct types differing by their state of nucleosome stability. One type, characterized by the presence of dynamic nucleosomes, is found at highly expressed genes, such as those involved in the control of cell growth and division. The results are described in the November 5th 2015 edition of Molecular Cell.
