Roles of chromatin factors in C. elegans development.
It is now well established that cells modify chromatin to establish transcriptionally active or inactive chromosomal regions. Such regulation of the chromatin structure is essential for the proper development of organisms. C. elegans is a powerful organism for exploring the developmental role of chromatin factors and their regulation. This chapter presents an overview of recent studies on chromatin factors in C. elegans with a description of their key roles in a variety of cellular and developmental processes.
