(13) Based on these results we propose that the linearization of the DNA elution dose-response curve observed after chromatin decondensation reflects a reduction in the degree of chromatin compactness in the nuclear complexes that leads to a relatively uniform distribution of the DNA on the filter and reduces trapping of elutable material in the compact nuclear structures otherwise present.

(15) These observations strongly suggest that (i) GCN4 specifically recognizes the central base pair, (ii) the optimal half-site for GCN4 binding is ATGAC, not ATGAG, and (iii) GCN4 is a surprisingly flexible protein that can accommodate the insertion of a single base pair in the center of its compact binding site.

(18) At rostral levels, one third of the tracts are loosely built forming a king of curtain, while they become more compact at caudal levels.
(19) This shows that the compaction of chromatin associated with transcriptional inactivation does not require phosphorylation of H3 and suggests that the level of basal phosphorylation of H1 is not correlated with the intensity of transcription or DNA replication.

(13) The 68-kDa protein of B. bronchiseptica appeared to be the major protective antigen in B. bronchiseptica infection; however, isolated protein alone did not induce such a solid protection, as observed in a previous study after the application of an effective whole cell vaccine.
