Frederic PontvianneJulio Sáez-Vásquez

Abstract

The nucleolus is the site of rRNA gene transcription, rRNA processing, and ribosome biogenesis. However, the nucleolus also plays additional roles in the cell. We isolated nucleoli using fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS) and identified nucleolus-associated chromatin domains (NA...read more

Structure of Centromere Chromatin (Keystone)

Centromeres specify the kinetochore formation sites on individual chromosomes, and are epigenetically marked by the assembly of nucleosomes containing the centromere-specific histone h3 variant, CENPA. Discover the latest research on the structure of centromere chromatin in this feed.

Centromere in DNA replication

Centromere identity must be maintained through multiple generations. A new study reveals a Constitutive Centromere-Associated Network (CCAN)-dependent retention of CENP-A, a key epigenetic mark for centromeres, in centromeres during DNA replication and a replication-dependent error correction to eliminate ectopic CENP-A in chromosome arms. Discover the latest research on centromere in DNA replication here.

Telomere Elongation

Telomere elongation by telomerase counteracts the telomere shortening due to the incomplete replication of chromosome ends by dna polymerase.

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.

Structure of Centromere Chromatin

Centromeres specify the kinetochore formation sites on individual chromosomes, and are epigenetically marked by the assembly of nucleosomes containing the centromere-specific histone h3 variant, CENPA. Discover the latest research on Structure of Centromere Chromatin here.

Transposable Elements

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

Heterochromatin Function (Keystone)

Heterochromatin is condensed chromatin that was previously believed to be inaccessible for transcription, although this has been disproven. Heterochromatin plays a role in gene expression. Find the latest research on heterochromatin here.

Nuclear Bodies: Biogenesis & Function

Nuclear bodies are membrane-less subnuclear organelles capable of affecting numerous nuclear functions from gene expression to rRNA biogenesis. They consist of the nucleoli, Cajal bodies, nuclear speckles, polycomb bodies, and paraspeckles. Discover the latest research on Biogenesis and Function of Nuclear Bodies 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 and Cancer (Keystone)

DNA methylation in cancer plays a variety of roles, helping to change the healthy regulation of gene expression to a disease pattern. Discover the latest research on DNA methylation and cancer by following this feed.

Centromeres & Kinetochores

The centromere is a specialized DNA sequence of a chromosome that links a pair of sister chromatids. During prophase, specialized regions of the centromeres known as kinetochores attach chromosomes to spindle fibers. Here is the latest research on centromeres and the kinetochore.
