    When DNA is compacted by histones into 10 nm and 30 nm fibers, the DNA is unable to interact with proteins required for gene expression. Therefore, to allow for these proteins to act, the chromatin must constantly alter its structure. Which processes contribute to this dynamic activity?



    A. DNA supercoiling at or around H1 B. hydrolysis of DNA molecules where they are wrapped around the nucleosome core C. methylation and phosphorylation of histone tails
    D. accessibility of heterochromatin to phosphorylating enzymes E. nucleotide excision and reconstruction
    C. methylation and phosphorylation of histone tails

    Which of the following statements describes histones?



    A. The carboxyl end of each histone extends outward from the nucleosome and is called a "histone tail." B. The mass of histone in chromatin is approximately nine times the mass of DNA. C. Histone H1 is not present in the nucleosome bead; instead it is involved in the formation of higher-level chromatin structures.
    D. Histones are found in mammals, but not in other animals or in plants. E. Each nucleosome consists of two molecules of histone H1.
