Centromere sliding on a mammalian chromosome.
Bologna, Italy. In Chromosoma, 21 Dec 2014
It is a distinct genetic locus whose identity is established through epigenetic mechanisms that depend on the deposition of centromere-specific centromere protein A (CENP-A) nucleosomes.
Kif7 keeps cilia tips in shape.
Copenhagen, Denmark. In Nat Cell Biol, Jul 2014
The kinesin-4 motor protein Kif7 regulates Hedgehog signalling at cilia in mammals by controlling the activity of Gli transcription factors.
Epigenetic targeting of Hedgehog pathway transcriptional output through BET bromodomain inhibition.
Stanford, United States. In Nat Med, Jul 2014
We show that BRD4 and other BET bromodomain proteins regulate GLI transcription downstream of SMO and suppressor of fused (SUFU), and chromatin immunoprecipitation studies reveal that BRD4 directly occupies GLI1 and GLI2 promoters, with a substantial decrease in engagement of these sites after treatment with JQ1, a small-molecule inhibitor targeting BRD4.

Edinburgh, United Kingdom. In Curr Opin Cell Biol, Feb 2014
Specialised chromatin in which canonical histone H3 is replaced by CENP-A, an H3 related protein, is a signature of active centromeres and provides the foundation for kinetochore assembly.
