    Generation of GTP-bound Ran on chromatin by its guanine nucleotide-exchange factor RCC1 provides a spatial signal that controls nuclear-envelope formation, nucleo-cytoplasmic transport and mitotic spindle assembly. A study now identifies an unusual post-translational modification,...

    We introduce a new polymer model for mitotic chromosomes. The key assumption of the model is the ability of the chromatin fibre to cross-link to itself due to binding proteins. These protein-chromatin interactions are included by a probabilistic and dynamic mechanism. The hypothesis is motivated...

    Predicting the chromosomal location of mapped markers has been difficult because linkage maps do not reveal differences in crossover frequencies along the physical structure of chromosomes. Here we combine a physical crossover map based on the distribution of recombination nodules (RNs) on...

    Recent years are marked by a notable increase in interest in the role of chromatin in the regulation of gene activity. In the 1970s, numerous studies were undertaken in order to identify different forms of histones involved in selective transcription activation. The results of these studies were...

    How are short exonic sequences recognized within the vast intronic oceans in which they reside? Despite decades of research, this remains one of the most fundamental, yet enigmatic, questions in the field of pre-mRNA splicing research. For many years, studies aiming to shed light on this process...

To date, an intriguing number of genes have been identified that are essential for development of extraembryonic...
