Heterochromatin and Euchromatin

Heterochromatin and Euchromatin Heterochromatin and euchromatin are two types of chromatin structure. Heterochromatin is defined as densely packed chromatin and euchromatin is defined as loosely packed chromatin. The condensed chromatin structure indicates inactive transcription. This is heterochromatin structure. Methylation stop the gene expression as it blocks the promoter site from binding to transcription factors. Therefore, […]
