Structures of Epigenetic Machinery

Epigenetic modifications are carried out by proteins and protein complexes, many of which become dysregulated during diseases including cancer. Identifying structures of epigenetic machinery will shed light on proteins that govern various epigenetic processes and may aid in advancing therapeutics for certain diseases. Here is the latest research.

Angelman Syndrome

Angelman syndrome is a neurogenetic imprinting disorder caused by loss of the maternally inherited UBE3A gene and is characterized by generalized epilepsy, limited expressive speech, sleep dysfunction, and movement disorders. Here is the latest research.

Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome

Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome is an imprinting disorder characterized by overgrowth, congenital malformations and predisposition to tumors. Discover the latest research on Beckwith-Wiedemann Syndrome here.

Cajal Bodies & Gems

Cajal bodies or coiled bodies are dense foci of coilin protein. Gemini of Cajal bodies, or gems, are microscopically similar to Cajal bodies. It is believed that Cajal bodies play important roles in RNA processing while gems assist the Cajal bodies. Find the latest research on Cajal bodies and gems here.
