Chromatin structure and gene regulation

Chromatin Structure and function.

The genomes of eukaryotes associate with histone proteins to form chromatin. Chromatin is the substrate for all genetic processes and as a result of fundamental importance to a diverse range of biological processes including development and disease. Indeed chromatin is currently of significant interest both in the development of biomarkers for diseases and as a source of new therapeutic targets. Eukaryotes use a range of strategies to alter chromatin structure. These include the use of histone modifications, histone chaperones and ATP dependent remodelling enzymes. We are generally interested in how these different strategies are coordinated to ensure appropriate gene regulation.
