This nucleosome is 10 million times real life. Like thread wrapped around a spool, DNA is wrapped around proteins called histones in eukaryotes to help pack a large amount of DNA into a small nucleus. Even though it's bundled up, there's still room to access the DNA for transcription. DNA shown in orange and red; histones shown in blue, green, yellow. PDB: 3AFA
