Abstract (English)

In the eukaryotic cell nucleus DNA needs to be highly condensed. The initial level of DNA compaction is mediated by the wrapping of DNA around histone octamers to form nucleosomes. For efficient DNA metabolism, including DNA replication, transcription, repair and recombination, access to the required sequences must be granted. Hence, nucleosomes need to be highly dynamic. This is mediated by ...


Translation of the abstract (German)

Im eukaryotischen Zellkern liegt die DNA in stark kondensierter Form vor. Die erste Ebene der Chromatin-Kompaktierung wird durch die Windung der DNA um ein Histonoktamer erreicht, wobei ein sogenanntes Nukleosom gebildet wird. Zur Gewährleistung eines effizienten DNA-Metabolismus, wie DNA-Replikation, -Transkription, -Reparatur und -Rekombination müssen die entsprechenden Sequenzen zugänglich ...
