The L1 loops of H2A.Z.1 and H2A.Z.2 are flexible in nucleosomes. (a-c) The B factors for each C[alpha] atom of H2A.Z.1 (a), H2A.Z.2 (b) and H2A (c) in the nucleosomes are plotted. The secondary structures of H2A.Z.1, H2A.Z.2 and H2A in the nucleosomes are shown at the top of each panel. (d) Close-up views of the L1 loop regions of H2A.Z.1 (left panel), H2A.Z.2 (centre panel) and H2A (right panel). The 2mFo - DFc maps of the L1 loop regions of H2A.Z.1, H2A.Z.2 and H2A were calculated and contoured at the 1.5[sigma] level. (e) Close-up views of the [alpha]2 region of H2A.Z.1 (left panel) and H2A.Z.2 (right panel). The 2mFo - DFc maps of the [alpha]2 regions of H2A.Z.1 and H2A.Z.2 are presented (1.5[sigma] level).  [article HTML]
