Low-force DNA condensation and discontinuous high-force decondensation reveal a loop-stabilizing function of the protein Fis
(American Physical Society, 2005-11-11)
We report single-DNA-stretching experiments showing that the protein Fis, an abundant bacterial chromosome protein of E. coli, mediates a dramatic DNA condensation to zero length. This condensation occurs abruptly when DNA ...
