Fuzzy Sequences, Specific Attachments? Chromosome Dynamics

Curr Biol. 1996 May 1;6(5):544-7. doi: 10.1016/s0960-9822(02)00538-9.


The assembly of condensed chromosomes in a cell-free system is inhibited by the addition of proteins that bind AT-rich DNA. Does this implicate the AT-rich scaffold attachment regions (SARs) in the formation of chromosomes?
