    Conducting Chromatin Motion

    Actin Dynamizes Contents of the Oocyte Nucleus


    Mogessie, B, 2019, ‘Conducting Chromatin Motion: Actin Dynamizes Contents of the Oocyte Nucleus’. Developmental Cell, vol 51., pp. 133-134


    Architecture of the nucleus is intimately linked to fundamental cellular processes carried out within it, such as maintenance of genome stability and gene expression. In this issue of Developmental Cell, Almonacid et al. (2019) show that actin-dependent shape fluctuations of the oocyte nucleus promote the movement of chromatin inside the nucleoplasm.
