Global nucleosome distribution and the regulation of transcription in yeast

Sevinc Ercan, Michael J. Carrozza, Jerry L. Workman

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Recent studies show that active regulatory regions of the yeast genome have a lower density of nucleosomes than other regions, and that there is an inverse correlation between nucleosome density and the transcription rate of a gene. This may be the result of transcription factors displacing nucleosomes.
