Lampbrush chromosomes as a model system for transcriptionally active chromatin
Project management at the University of Würzburg:
Lampbrush chromosomes of amphibian oocytes present a valuable model system since they allow the direct light microscopic visualization of transcriptionally active genes in the form of lateral loops. Our studies are aimed at the identification of the protein compositon of these highly active genes as compared to that of the inactive chromosome axis. Furthermore, we want to gain some more insight into the structural organization and function of the RNA transcripts of the lampbrush chromosomes.
