Homology-dependent methylation in primate repetitive DNA

Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America

Mar 31, 2005

Julien MeunierLaurent Duret

Abstract

In mammals, several studies have suggested that levels of methylation are higher in repetitive DNA than in nonrepetitive DNA, possibly reflecting a genome-wide defense mechanism against deleterious effects associated with transposable elements (TEs). To analyze the determinants of methy...read more

DNA Methylation

DNA methylation is an epigenetic mechanism of gene regulation, and dysregulation of DNA methylation has been associated with tumorigenesis. Discover the latest research on DNA methylation here.

Transposons for Gene Editing

Transposons can replicate and spread through the host’s genome and therefore be used as a genetic tool for analysis of gene function. Discover the latest research on the use of transposons for gene editing here.

DNA Methylation (Keystone)

DNA methylation is an epigenetic mechanism of gene regulation, and dysregulation of DNA methylation has been associated with tumorigenesis. Discover the latest research on DNA methylation here.

Transposable Elements

Transposable elements (tes) have profound effects on the structure, function and evolution of their host genomes.
