Cation-induced folding of 10 nm chromatin filament to 30 nm fiber was studied with hyperacetylated chromatin using light scattering at 90° and flow linear dichroism. Acetylated chromatin folded in a way indistinguishable from that of the control chromatin: both the compactness of chromatin and the orientation of nucleosomes relative to the fiber axis were identical at a given salt concentration.
