  • The major force driving the degeneration of Y chromosomes are retrotransposons in remodelling former euchromatic chromosome structures into heterochromatic ones. Stories / Popular

  • Our molecular maps demonstrate that heterochromatin can invade a normally euchromatic region, yet the strength of HP1 binding and effects on gene expression are highly dependent on local context.

  • These findings suggest that DNA demethylating interventions alone are not able to restore a complete euchromatic status and a full transcriptional reactivation of the epigenetically silenced tumor suppressor genes, and reinforce the necessity of targeting multiple elements of the epigenetics machinery for a successful treatment of malignancies.

  • Knock-down and transfection experiments for DOT1L show that this enzyme has a direct role in maintaining the euchromatic and active status of these genes when unmethylated.
