In this research paper they talk about the methylation of histone. They use mass spectrometry to identify which peptide position is methylated. Does the number yielded by the spectrometer calculate ...
I was viewing different methods for peak calling and came across two quite similar concepts but still different methods: MACS and SICER. The main difference is that SICER uses nonoverlapping sliding ...
Some years ago Hiroaki Kawasaki and Kazunari Taira published an article called "Induction of DNA methylation and gene silencing by short interfering RNAs in human cells" in Nature: In plants, ...
As far as I know, this is one of the biggest questions in the epigenetic field: how are the epigenetic marks like histone modifications propagated through cell division? A lot is already known about ...
I wanted to find out if anyone knows what stimulates histone methyltransferases to function? I know that it is a process still trying to be understood, but I can't find anything that seems to direct ...
What are the current models/ideas describing the mechanisms explaining inheritance of methylation on DNA resp. histone level? Is there evidance of this "setup" information being really ...
