    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.

    Epigenetic memory independent of symmetric histone inheritance

    Daniel S Saxton, Jasper Rine
    Reduced fidelity of histone inheritance has minimal effects on inheritance of epigenetic states of heterochromatin in Saccharomyces..

    Epigenetic inheritance of circadian period in clonal cells

    Yan Li et al.
    Global changes in gene expression associated with differential DNA methylation underlie epigenetic inheritance of circadian periodicity in cells.

    A conserved RNA degradation complex required for spreading and epigenetic inheritance of heterochromatin

    Gergana Shipkovenska et al.
    Genetic and biochemical studies show that a conserved ribosome biogenesis complex also localizes to heterochromatin, where it triggers RNA degradation and promotes the spreading and epigenetic inheritance of histone methylation.

    An H3K9 methylation-dependent protein interaction regulates the non-enzymatic functions of a putative histone demethylase

    Gulzhan Raiymbek et al.
    A putative histone demethylase in fission yeast has non-enzymatic properties that regulates heterochromatin assembly and epigenetic inheritance.

    Local chromatin environment of a Polycomb target gene instructs its own epigenetic inheritance

    Scott Berry et al.
    Two copies of a Polycomb target gene in the same cell can be maintained in independently heritable expression states, demonstrating that long-term memory of gene expression is stored locally.

    Epigenetics: A memory of longevity

    Felicity Emerson et al.
    Worms with increased levels of the epigenetic mark H3K9me2 have a longer lifespan that can be passed down to future generations.

    2018 Gairdner Awards: The discovery and importance of genomic imprinting

    Anne C Ferguson-Smith, Deborah Bourc'his
    Research into genomic imprinting has provided a foundation for the study of epigenetic mechanisms, especially during development, and has also shed light on a range of rare genetic disorders and common diseases.

    Repressive H3K9me2 protects lifespan against the transgenerational burden of COMPASS activity in C. elegans

    Teresa Wei-sy Lee et al.
    The transgenerational inheritance of lifespan is facilitated by the accumulation of repressive chromatin across generations.

    Noncoding RNA-nucleated heterochromatin spreading is intrinsically labile and requires accessory elements for epigenetic stability

    R A Greenstein et al.
    Heterochromatin spreading in fission yeast predominantly produces intergenerationally unstable outcomes, requiring an accessory element that represses histone turnover.
