A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

About

DNA of the human genome is 2m long and is folded into chromosomes that fit in 10-micron cellular nucleus. How are these long polymers of DNA folded and organized in 3D inside the nucleus? How can proteins that are much smaller than chromosomes drive chromosome compaction, segregation or control functional interactions at much larger scales?

Recently developed Chromosome Conformation Capture technique (Hi-C) provides comprehensive information about frequencies of spatial interactions between genomic loci. Inferring principles and mechanisms of 3D organization of chromosomes from these and imaging data is a challenging biophysical problem. Recently we proposed that chromosomes are organized by an active, motor-driven process of loop extrusion. Loop extrusion can be a universal mechanism responsible for formation of domains and facilitation on enhancer-promoter interaction during interphase [1], and chromosome compaction and segregation in metaphase [2]. I will review recent experimental studies [3-5] that provide strong support to loop extrusion as a universal mechanism of chromosome folding.
