Long tracts of CCG trinucleotide or CCGNN pentanucleotide repeats in DNA have previously been shown to resist assembly into nucleosomes. This may provide a molecular explanation for the nature of certain rare, folate-sensitive fragile sites in human chromosomes that contain expanded CCG triplet tracts. Further, it is known that methylation of CpG dinucleotides at or near these fragile sites enhances the fragile phenotype. Here DNAs containing 76 tandem CCG triplets or 48 CCGNN pentanucleotidedoi:10.1074/jbc.271.38.22937 fatcat:nfcinb2ijbhhviirzacqk5pfaa
