Role of transposable elements in heterochromatin and epigenetic control

Nature

Jul 23, 2004

Zachary LippmanR A Martienssen

Abstract

Heterochromatin has been defined as deeply staining chromosomal material that remains condensed in interphase, whereas euchromatin undergoes de-condensation. Heterochromatin is found near centromeres and telomeres, but interstitial sites of heterochromatin (knobs) are common in plant ge...read more

Epigenetics is the study of heritable changes in gene expression that do not involve alteration of the DNA sequence. Here is the latest research.

Genomic Imprinting

Genomic imprinting is an epigenetically regulated process whereby genes are selectively silenced based on their parent-of-origin, leading to monoallelic expression. Discover the latest research on genomic imprinting here.

RNAi & Gene Silencing

RNA Interference (RNAi) pathway is involved in post-transcriptional gene silencing, transcriptional silencing and epigenetic silencing as well as its use as a tool for forward genetics and therapeutics. Discover the latest research here.

Phase-Separation and Heterochromatin(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. This feed looks specifically at the role of phase-separation in heterochromatin; follow this feed to stay up to date on this topic.

Chromatin Remodeling

Chromatin remodeling is essential for regulation of gene expression, DNA replication, as well as DNA repair. Here is the latest research on chromatin remodeling complexes and mechanisms underlying chromatin remodeling.

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.
