    Live-cell single-molecule tracking reveals co-recognition of H3K27me3 and DNA targets polycomb Cbx7-PRC1 to chromatin

    Chao Yu Zhen et al.
    Live-cell single-molecule tracking reveals that hierarchical cooperation within the Polycomb Cbx7 protein between the low-affinity H3K27me3-binding module and the high-affinity DNA-binding cassette targets Polycomb repressive complex 1 to chromatin.

    Structural basis for histone variant H3tK27me3 recognition by PHF1 and PHF19

    Cheng Dong et al.
    Complex structures of Tudor domains of PHF1/19 with H3tK27me3 provide structural basis for preferential recognition of H3tK27me3 over canonical H3K27me3, implicating that H3tK27me3 might be a physiological ligand of PHF1/19.

    H3.3K27M mutant proteins reprogram epigenome by sequestering the PRC2 complex to poised enhancers

    Dong Fang et al.
    Redistribution of the PRC2 complex in H3.3K27M mutant cells to poised enhancers contributes to the global reduction of H3K27me3 in cells expressing the mutant proteins.

    In vivo targeting of de novo DNA methylation by histone modifications in yeast and mouse

    Marco Morselli et al.
    DNA methylation deposition is dependent on the presence of H3K4me3 and H3K36me3 histone marks.

    Controlling gene activation by enhancers through a drug-inducible topological insulator

    Taro Tsujimura et al.
    A novel synthetic DNA cassette of CTCF-binding sites combined with the drug-controllable induction system of heterochromatin enabled switchable blocking of chromatin conformation and gene-enhancer interaction.

    Histone gene replacement reveals a post-transcriptional role for H3K36 in maintaining metazoan transcriptome fidelity

    Michael P Meers et al.
    Post-translational modification of histone H3K36 is not required to suppress cryptic transcription initiation or to include alternative exons in Drosophila; instead it promotes expression of active genes by stimulating polyadenylation.

    Chromatin signature of widespread monoallelic expression

    Anwesha Nag et al.
    Active and repressive chromatin marks, asymmetrically distributed between alleles, distinguish gene bodies subject to epigenetically controlled monoallelic expression on autosomes in human cells.

    Intergenerational epigenetic inheritance of cancer susceptibility in mammals

    Bluma J Lesch et al.
    Genetic knockout of the histone demethylase Kdm6a in the mouse germ line leads to elevated cancer incidence in genetically wild type offspring.

    ZCWPW1 is recruited to recombination hotspots by PRDM9 and is essential for meiotic double strand break repair

    Daniel Wells et al.
    ZCWPW1 has co-evolved with PRDM9, in particular the PRDM9-SET domain, and although not involved in PRDM9's role in positioning recombination events, it is required for PRDM9's role in pairing chromosomes.
