Transcriptionally active chromatin has properties different from those of inactive chromatin, which have been exploited to separate these two fractions of the genome (1,2). The most widely used fractionation procedures are based on the selective sensitivity of transcriptionally active chromatin towards nucleases (1,2). By these fractionation procedures, preparations enriched in transcriptionally active chromatin have been obtained and their properties and macromolecular constituents analysed (1,2,9,10).
