The local structure of chromatin during interphase depends on the genes present on the DNA: DNA coding genes that are actively transcribed (“turned on”) are more loosely packaged and are found associated with RNA polymerases (referred to as euchromatin) while DNA coding inactive genes (“turned off”) are found associated with structural proteins and are more tightly packaged … The structure of chromatin during inter-phase is optimized to allow easy access of transcription and DNA repair factors to the DNA while compacting the DNA into the nucleus. previously there has been insufficient data on chro mosome structure to inve stigate this rigorously. 0000004470 00000 n PDF Container .
