Study of Nucleosomal Organization of Chromatin in EBV Producer and Non-Producer Cells
The chromatin of higher and lower eukaryotes consists of nucleoprotein units, the nucleosomes (Felsenfeld, 1978). Investigations of the chromatin structure with nucleases have revealed that the DNA length per nucleosome varies between different organisms, different tissues, cells of the same tissue, and is correlated with the transcriptional activity of the cells and their state of differentiation (Noll, 1976; Lohr et al., 1977; Ord and Stocken, 1979).
