    ..Using a reconstituted system containing genomic DNA and purified proteins from yeast, Krietenstein et al. uncover the direct contributions of key factors in nucleosome positioning and conceptualize the process into four distinct stages. ..

    ..Furthermore, we provide how this framework could be applied to investigations of nuclear actin in other actin-containing chromatin-modifying complexes. ..

    ..Together, these findings identify a novel regulator of Mec1 kinase activity and suggest that ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling complexes can regulate nonchromatin substrates such as a checkpoint kinase. ..

    ..In vivo, Ies4 and Rad9 function synergistically to activate Rad53. These findings establish a direct connection between ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling complexes and checkpoint regulation. ..
