AbstractChromatin-remodeling complexes such as SWI/SNF and RSC of yeast can perturb the structure of nucleosomes in an ATP-dependent manner. Experimental results prove that this chromatin remodeling process involves DNA bending. We simulate the effect of DNA bending, caused by chromatin-remodeling complexes, on directional sliding of histone octamers by Brownian dynamics simulation. The simulation results show that, after a DNA loop being generated at the side of a nucleosome, the histone octamer slides towards this DNA loop until the loop disappears. The DNA loop size is an important factor affecting the process of directional sliding of the histone octamer.
