Correlated and Decorrelated Positional and Orientational Order in the Nucleosomal Core Particle Mesophases

Abstract : We investigate the orientational order of transverse polarization vectors of long columns of nucleosomal core particles and their coupling to positional order in high density mesophases discovered recently. Inhomogeneous polar ordering of these columns precipitates crystalization of the 2D sections with different orientations of the transverse polarization vector on each column in the unit cell. We propose possible scenarios for going from the 2D hexagonal phase into distorted lamellar and related phases observed experimentally.
