Chromatin is by its very nature a repressive environment which restricts the recruitment of transcription factors and acts as a barrier to polymerases. Therefore, the complex process of gene activation must operate at two levels. In the first instance, localised chromatin decondensation and nucleosome displacement is required to make DNA accessible. Secondly, sequence-specific transcription factors need to recruit chromatin modifiers and remodelers to create a chromatin environment that permits the passage of polymerases. In this review I will discuss the chromatin structural changes that occur at active gene loci, and at regulatory elements that exist as DNase I Hypersensitive Sites.
