Kazuhiro Maeshima, Sachiko Tamura and Yuta Shimamoto “Chromatin as a nuclear spring”

【Significance】
Chromatin as a nuclear spring

The nucleus in eukaryotic cells is the site for genomic functions such as RNA transcription, DNA replication, and DNA repair/recombination. However, the nucleus is continually subjected to various mechanical forces. How can the nucleus cope with such forces? Recent studies including ours have suggested that chromatin functions not only as a “memory device” to store, replicate, and express the genetic information for various cellular functions but also as a “nuclear spring” to resist and respond to mechanical forces.
