Histone 3 lysine 4 methylation (H3K4 methylation) catalyzed by H3K4 specific histone methyltransferases is one of the more critical chromatin modifications that is generally associated with gene activation.
Fierke et al., Ann Arbor, United States. In Anal Biochem, 24 Apr 2014
UNLABELLED: Histone deacetylases catalyze the hydrolysis of an acetyl group from post-translationally modified acetyl-lysine residues in a wide variety of essential cellular proteins, including histones.
Nijnik et al., Canada. In Int J Biochem Cell Biol, 16 Apr 2014
UNLABELLED: Posttranslational modifications of histone H2A through the attachment of ubiquitin or poly-ubiquitin conjugates are common in mammalian genomes and play an important role in the regulation of chromatin structure, gene expression, and DNA repair.
Kook et al., Kwangju, South Korea. In Pharmacol Ther, 01 Apr 2014
Histone deacetylases (HDACs), which are known as transcriptional regulators, are one example of posttranslational modifiers with diverse roles in human pathophysiology, including cardiovascular diseases.
Tyagi et al., Louisville, United States. In Int J Cardiol, 20 Mar 2014
UNLABELLED: Epigenetic modifications which are defined by DNA methylation, histone modifications and microRNA mediated gene regulation, have been found to be associated with cardiac dysfunction and cardiac regeneration but the mechanisms are unclear.
Ishii et al., Tsukuba, Japan. In Cell Stem Cell, 06 Mar 2014
Here, we report that two histone variants, TH2A and TH2B, which are highly expressed in oocytes and contribute to activation of the paternal genome after fertilization, enhance OSKM-dependent generation of iPSCs and can induce reprogramming with Klf4 and Oct3/4 alone.

Here we demonstrate that mice with an intestinal epithelial cell (IEC)-specific deletion of the epigenome-modifying enzyme histone deacetylase 3 (HDAC3(ΔIEC) mice) exhibited extensive dysregulation of IEC-intrinsic gene expression, including decreased basal expression of genes associated with antimicrobial defence.
Workman et al., Kansas City, United States. In Science, 2005
demonstrated that the dTip60 chromatin-remodeling complex acetylates nucleosomal phospho-H2Av and exchanges it with an unmodified H2Av; both the histone acetyltransferase dTip60 and the atpase Domino/p400 catalyze the exchange of phospho-H2Av
