The researchers applied dual-PWS by studying the nanoscale structural and dynamic changes of chromatin in eukaryotic cells in vitro.
Sperm DNA integrity can be assayed in methods such as single cell electrophoresis or terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase mediated dUTP nick end labeling (TUNEL) directly (13) and techniques such as sperm chromatin structural assay (SCSA) and chromomycine A3 (CMA3) indirectly.
These tools leverage unique aspects of Arima-HiC data, such as greater coverage uniformity and higher long-range signal-to-noise ratio, for improved chromatin conformation and genome assembly analysis.

In undamaged cells, Chk1 is associated with chromatin and Chk1 dissociates from chromatin following its phosphorylation in response to DNA damage accompanied by loss of histone H[3.sup.T11] phosphorylation [20, 23].
pRB inhibits E2F transcriptional activity via a direct interaction with E2F; however, pRB also blocks cell cycle progression by repressing the target gene transcription through the recruitment of transcriptional corepressors and/or chromatin remodeling protein factors at promoter regions [9] (Figure 1).
