    The activity-dependent histone variant H2BE modulates the life span of olfactory neurons

    Stephen W Santoro, Catherine Dulac
    A genome-organizing protein that is present only in the olfactory system of mice has been found to orchestrate changes in the relative numbers of different odor-sensing neurons on the basis of how active these neurons are.

    Live-cell single particle imaging reveals the role of RNA polymerase II in histone H2A.Z eviction

    Anand Ranjan et al.
    Histone variant H2A.Z is deposited near transcription start sites by the chromatin remodeler SWR1 and seems to be removed by RNA polymerase II at an early stage of transcription elongation.

    Constitutive turnover of histone H2A.Z at yeast promoters requires the preinitiation complex

    Michael Tramantano et al.
    The transcription machinery is required for the disassembly of the promoter-proximal H2A.Z nucleosome, contributing to the constitutive histone turnover at yeast promoters.

    Imaging the fate of histone Cse4 reveals de novo replacement in S phase and subsequent stable residence at centromeres

    Jan Wisniewski et al.
    Internally tagged, functional Cse4/CENP-A/CenH3 histone variant is exclusively centromeric and stable through the budding yeast cell cycle after replacement in S phase.

    Integrated analysis of H2A.Z isoforms function reveals a complex interplay in gene regulation

    Assala Lamaa et al.
    The two H2A.Z isoforms have specific interactors which mediate their differential effects on gene expression.

    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.

    Drosophila SWR1 and NuA4 complexes are defined by DOMINO isoforms

    Alessandro Scacchetti et al.
    Alternative splicing of a single gene generates functional diversity amongst chromatin regulators.

    Histone deposition pathways determine the chromatin landscapes of H3.1 and H3.3 K27M oncohistones

    Jay F Sarthy et al.
    Deposition of mutant oncohistones by alternative nucleosome assembly pathways results in dramatic local differences in histone methylation in pediatric diffuse midline gliomas.

    CDK-regulated dimerization of M18BP1 on a Mis18 hexamer is necessary for CENP-A loading

    Dongqing Pan et al.
    The stoichiometry and mechanism of interactions of the Mis18 complex with M18BP1 was analysed to unveil the molecular basis of new CENP-A deposition during the G1 phase of the cell cycle.

    A long non-coding RNA is required for targeting centromeric protein A to the human centromere

    Delphine Quénet, Yamini Dalal
    A non-coding RNA-based targeting mechanism could potentially epigenetically maintain specialized chromatin structures, such as the centromere, in vivo.
