Structures of transcription preinitiation complex engaged with the +1 nucleosome

Authors Wang H, Schilbach S, Ninov M, Urlaub H, Cramer P Journal Nature Structural & Molecular Biology Citation Nat Struct Mol Biol. 2022 Nov 21. Abstract The preinitiation complex (PIC) assembles on promoters of protein-coding genes to position RNA polymerase II (Pol II) for transcription initiation. Previous structural studies revealed

Histone H1 binding to nucleosome arrays depends on linker DNA length and trajectory

Authors Dombrowski M, Engeholm M, Dienemann C, Dodonova, S. Cramer P Journal Nature Structural & Molecular Biology Citation Nat Struct Mol Biol 29, 493–501 (2022). Abstract Throughout the genome, nucleosomes often form regular arrays that differ in nucleosome repeat length (NRL), occupancy of linker histone H1 and transcriptional activity. Here,

Structural basis of RNA processing by human mitochondrial RNase P

Authors Bhatta A, Dienemann C, Cramer P, Hillen HS Journal Nature Structural and Molecular Biology Citation Nat Struct Mol Biol (2021). Abstract Human mitochondrial transcripts contain messenger and ribosomal RNAs flanked by transfer RNAs (tRNAs), which are excised by mitochondrial RNase (mtRNase) P and Z to liberate all RNA species.

Structure of H3K36-methylated nucleosome-PWWP complex reveals multivalent cross-gyre binding

Authors Wang H, Farnung L, Dienemann C, Cramer P Journal Nature Structural & Molecular Biology Citation Nat Struct Mol Biol. 2020 Jan;27(1):8-13. Abstract Recognition of histone-modified nucleosomes by specific reader domains underlies the regulation of chromatin-associated processes. Whereas structural studies revealed how reader domains bind modified histone peptides, it is
