  • The conformation of DNA bound in nucleosomes depends on the DNA sequence. Questions such as how nucleosomes are positioned and how they potentially bind sequence-dependent nuclear factors require near-atomic resolution structures of the nucleosome core containing different DNA sequences; despite this, only the DNA for two similar α-satellite sequences and a sequence (601) selected in vitro have been visualized bound in the nucleosome core ...

    The conformation of DNA bound in nucleosomes depends on the DNA sequence. Questions such as how nucleosomes are positioned and how they potentially bind sequence-dependent nuclear factors require near-atomic resolution structures of the nucleosome core containing different DNA sequences; despite this, only the DNA for two similar α-satellite sequences and a sequence (601) selected in vitro have been visualized bound in the nucleosome core. Here we report the 2.6-Å resolution X-ray structure of a nucleosome core particle containing the DNA sequence of nucleosome A of the 3'-LTR of the mouse mammary tumor virus (147 bp MMTV-A). To our knowledge, this is the first nucleosome core particle structure containing a promoter sequence and crystallized from Mg(2+) ions. It reveals sequence-dependent DNA conformations not seen previously, including kinking into the DNA major groove.
