    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.

    DDM1 and Lsh remodelers allow methylation of DNA wrapped in nucleosomes

    David B Lyons, Daniel Zilberman
    Nucleosomes and linker histones block eukaryotic cytosine methylation.

    Differential methylation between ethnic sub-groups reflects the effect of genetic ancestry and environmental exposures

    Joshua M Galanter et al.
    An epigenome-wide study shows that ethnic self-identification and genetically determined ancestry both make important independent contributions to DNA methylation levels.

    Stress induced gene expression drives transient DNA methylation changes at adjacent repetitive elements

    David Secco et al.
    Phosphate starvation in rice induces widespread, but transient, modulation of DNA methylation near stress responsive genes that is independent from the RNA-directed DNA methylation pathway.

    An epigenetic switch ensures transposon repression upon dynamic loss of DNA methylation in embryonic stem cells

    Marius Walter et al.
    The various transposon families of the mammalian genome can adopt different types of repressive chromatin responses upon DNA methylation loss.

    DNA methylation in Arabidopsis has a genetic basis and shows evidence of local adaptation

    Manu J Dubin et al.
    The adaptation of Arabidopsis plants to the local environment is linked to DNA methylation.

    ASH1-catalyzed H3K36 methylation drives gene repression and marks H3K27me2/3-competent chromatin

    Vincent T Bicocca et al.
    While SET-2 methylates histone H3K36 during transcription, ASH1 methylates this residue in repressed regions, is important for silencing, and can both positively and negatively influence methylation of histone H3K27.

    Genome-wide quantification of the effects of DNA methylation on human gene regulation

    Amanda J Lea et al.
    mSTARR-seq identifies regions of the genome where DNA methylation causally impacts gene expression, providing a map of which epigenetic marks may influence trait variation.

    The MBD7 complex promotes expression of methylated transgenes without significantly altering their methylation status

    Dongming Li et al.
    The METHYL-CpG-BINDING DOMAIN 7 (MBD7) complex promotes the activation (rather than repression) of transgenes that undergo DNA methylation and it does so without significantly altering their methylation status, placing this complex downstream of DNA methylation.

    The Arabidopsis active demethylase ROS1 cis-regulates defence genes by erasing DNA methylation at promoter-regulatory regions

    Thierry Halter et al.
    Active DNA demethylation at some defence gene promoters is causal for DNA binding of WRKY transcription factors as well as for transcriptional activation of these genes during plant immune response.
