    KDM2B links the Polycomb Repressive Complex 1 (PRC1) to recognition of CpG islands

    Anca M Farcas et al.
    A protein that can recognize regions of DNA with a high proportion of unmethylated CpG dinucleotides, and then recruit polycomb group proteins to these CpG islands, has been identified.

    FBXL19 recruits CDK-Mediator to CpG islands of developmental genes priming them for activation during lineage commitment

    Emilia Dimitrova et al.
    The ZF-CxxC protein FBXL19 recruits kinase-associated Mediator to CpG islands of silent developmental genes in embryonic stem cells, which primes these genes for activation during differentiation and is required for embryonic development.

    High-throughput engineering of a mammalian genome reveals building principles of methylation states at CG rich regions

    Arnaud R Krebs et al.
    Large numbers of DNA sequence variants comprehensively define how transcription factor binding sites and CG density preserve mammalian promoters from repression by DNA methylation.

    RNA virus attenuation by codon pair deoptimisation is an artefact of increases in CpG/UpA dinucleotide frequencies

    Fiona Tulloch et al.
    Attenuating candidate live virus vaccines by incorporating unfavoured codon pairs to reduce translation efficiency is actually mediated though changes in frequencies of CpG and UpA dinucleotides, which make viruses more visible to the innate immune system.

    Synthetic CpG islands reveal DNA sequence determinants of chromatin structure

    Elisabeth Wachter et al.
    Genomic landmarks, known generically as ‘CpG islands’, program chromatin structure via their richness in the dinucleotide CG and their skewed composition of DNA bases.

    KHNYN is essential for the zinc finger antiviral protein (ZAP) to restrict HIV-1 containing clustered CpG dinucleotides

    Mattia Ficarelli et al.
    KHNYN, a putative endoribonuclease, interacts with the zinc-finger antiviral protein (ZAP) and is required for the inhibition of HIV replication and RNA abundance by CpG dinucleotides.

    COVID-19 CG enables SARS-CoV-2 mutation and lineage tracking by locations and dates of interest

    Albert Tian Chen et al.
    COVID-19 CG is an open source web resource that allows vaccine, therapeutics, and diagnostics developers to track SARS-CoV-2 mutations and lineages by location and time.

    Noroviruses subvert the core stress granule component G3BP1 to promote viral VPg-dependent translation

    Myra Hosmillo et al.
    A key cellular stress granule protein, G3BP1, is critical for efficient norovirus infection, representing the first pan-norovirus, pro-viral factor identified to date.

    CMG helicase disassembly is controlled by replication fork DNA, replisome components and a ubiquitin threshold

    Tom D Deegan et al.
    Ubiquitylation of the CMG helicase is inhibited throughout the initiation and elongation phases of chromosome replication by the DNA structure of a replication fork.

    Elevation of CpG frequencies in influenza A genome attenuates pathogenicity but enhances host response to infection

    Eleanor Gaunt et al.
    Mutants of influenza A virus with increased CpG dinucleotide frequencies show restricted replication and reduced or absent pathogenicity, and powerful host innate and adaptive responses to infection that confer immunity to re-infection.
