Bridging water molecules have a dual role in promoting histone-DNA association not only by providing further stability to direct protein-DNA interactions. Water bonds at the interface of the histones and DNA accommodate intrinsic DNA conformational variation while enhancing mobility.
3D printed Biologic Model of Nucleosome 1KX5 and printed in full-color sandstone. Protein model visualizes coiled DNA strands as light grey and multi-colored histones inside.
