Histone H1 in Arabidopsis thaliana
MetadataShow full item record
Histone H1, or linker histone, are unique histones that bind to the nucleosome to facilitate higher order chromatin structure. The linker histones, when compared to the core histones that make up the nucleosome, are poorly understood especially in plants. Linker histones are vital for plant development as well as for cell cycle regulation, sharing many qualities with animal linker histones. In this report, the first two parts introduce the current literature of H1, including result from non-plant systems, and the third section is a research proposal describing a research project to elucidate the roles of linker histones on the regulation of FLOWERING LOCUS C (FLC) in Arabidopsis thaliana.
