Abstract

Aspects pertaining to linker histone structure and function are discussed, including the extent to which these proteins are essential, their ability to regulate specific gene expression, and recent structural data that provides a potential molecular basis for understanding how linker histones can have both repressive and stimulatory effects on genomic functions in vivo.
