PDF The Mirage Factory: Illusion, Imagination, and the Invention of L…The question as to how the strands of chromatin are packed into the eukaryotic nucleus has intrigued biologists and biochemists for many years. Although there is ample space in the nucleus for the eukaryotic genome, the enormous length of the DNA molecules requires that they be extensively folded. In addition, the folding must be such as to allow regulated access to certain regions of the genome. The discovery of the nucleosome as a basic organizing unit cast the problem in more defined focus see Refs. Even so, it was realized that the condensation afforded to the DNA by nucleosomes about a compaction ratio could not account for the many thousand-fold compaction that must exist in vivo. Some kind of higher order folding of the nucleosomal fiber must therefore exist.
