Study: Molecular motors shape chromosome structure

Study: Molecular motors shape chromosome structure | DNA & RNA Research | Scoop.it

An MIT-led team has developed models explaining how cells handle the difficult task of condensing and separating their chromosomes before cell division. The model, based on dynamic loop formation by molecular motors, also helps to explain how cells keep certain regions of chromosomes distinct from neighboring regions.
