Ribosomal protein gene promoter architecture

modelized nucleosomeDavid Shore’s group published in Genes & Development on August 1st, 2014 a detailed study of the promoter architecture of a large group of co-regulated genes, the ribosomal protein genes, which drive cell growth in yeast. In particular, this study reveals an unusual class of dynamic nucleosomes that may help to promote the high transcription level of these genes.
