1996). This is a simple and important result that suggests that charge neutralization probably underlies most of the folding of nucleosomes into higher order structures. Nevertheless between different types of linker histone there is considerable specificity in their interaction with DNA in the nucleosome and important consequences for the folding of nucleosomal arrays. It is also probable that mechanisms will exist for interactions between nucleosomal arrays that exist on distinct DNA molecules (Fletcher and Hansen, 1996).

10. DNase I and hydroxyl radical cleavage of DNA in the nucleosome. DNA is made radioactive at one end, by the introduction of a phosphate group containing 32p. Hydroxyl radical cleavage of naked DNA is shown (DNA). Control lanes are nucleosome core particles that do not have a cleavage reagent added to them. In the DNase I and OHo lanes the indicated cleavage reagent is added. The DNA fragments are denatured to singlestrands and are then resolved on a denaturing polyacrylamide gel on the basis of size.

1996). The N-terminal tail and N-terminal a-helix of H3 are also dispensible for chromatin assembly. However the remainder of the H3 and H4 histone folds are essential for the incorporation of these proteins in chromatin. The shape of the histone octamer is that of a wedge in which a central V-shaped tetramer ((H3, H4)2) is bordered by two flattened spheres of (H2A, H2B) dimers. The octamer structure has several grooves and ridges on its surface. These make a left-handed helical ramp on to which DNA will wrap.
