The silence of the clones: new link between DNA replication and 'silent' chromosome architecture

...t are generally more accessible to transcriptional activators . Now, Bruce Stillman and his colleagues at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory have demonstrated how a set of proteins work in concert to duplicate both the basic sequence of DNA as well as silenced states of chromatin structure. The findings, published ...
