Furthermore, the relationship between the increased histone acetylation/methylation and the increased developmental competence in SN oocytes is particularly worth exploring by using a system where the SN configuration can be uncoupled (dissociated) from increased histone modifications.

Histone proteins are decorated by a variety of protein posttranslational modifications called histone marks that modulate chromatin structure and function, contributing to the cellular gene expression program.

Here we show that histone H2A.Z, a variant of histone H2A, is actively exchanged in response to fear conditioning in the hippocampus and the cortex, where it mediates gene expression and restrains the formation of recent and remote memory.
Histone modifications indeed change similarly in the vicinity of cell-autonomous genes and their corresponding tRNAs, and in multicellularity genes and their tRNAs, suggesting the existence of transcriptional programs coordinating tRNA supply and demand.

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
