Supplementary Material

Supplementary Figures 1 to 5 entail EMSAs showing restriction digestion analysis to assess histone octamer saturation of 12-array, the HMGN binding-induced S2 transition is fully reversible, HMGN binding-induced transitions are not influenced by HMGN presence or introduction during nucleosome assembly and off-centered NCP undergoes a transition in the presence of divalent metal and associates with HMGN1 and HMGN1t to form an S2-like state.
