Tail bridging vs. patchiness : models for the interaction of nucleosomes

Frank Mühlbacher
The subject of this thesis are the interactions between nucleosome core particles (NCPs). NCPs are the primary storage units of DNA in eucaryotic cells. Each NCP consists of a core of eight histone proteins and a strand of DNA, which is wrapped around about two times. Each histone protein has a terminal tail passing over and between the superhelix of the wrapped DNA. Special emphasis was placed on the role of the histone tails, since...
