Band-shift assays and electron microscopy revealed that DEK induces both intra- and intermolecular interactions between DNA molecules. Binding of the DEK protein introduces constrained positive supercoils both into protein-free DNA and into DNA in chromatin. The induced change in topology is reversible after removal of the DEK protein. As shown by sedimentation analysis and electron microscopy, the DEK-induced positive supercoiling causes distinct structural changes of DNA and chromatin. The observed direct effects of DEK on chromatin folding help to understand the function that this major chromatin protein performs in the nucleus.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2017-04-21T12:12:54Z</dc:date> <dc:creator>Gruss, Claudia</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Eckerich, Carmen</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Waldmann, Tanja</dc:creator> <dcterms:issued>2002-07-12</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2017-04-21T12:12:54Z</dcterms:available> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dc:contributor>Waldmann, Tanja</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Baack, Martina</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Gruss, Claudia</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/38555"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
