    PRDM9 activity depends on HELLS and promotes local 5-hydroxymethylcytosine enrichment

    Yukiko Imai et al.
    Biochemical and genetic approaches uncover a chromatin remodeler for PRDM9 binding and the parallel local epigenetic modification of cytosines in mouse spermatocytes.

    Exploring chromosomal structural heterogeneity across multiple cell lines

    Ryan R Cheng et al.
    Chromosomal structural ensembles are fluid yet are cell-type-specific, despite apparent disorder, appropriate collective variables uncover evidence of structural transitions associated with gene activity and cell differentiation.

    Caenorhabditis elegans methionine/S-adenosylmethionine cycle activity is sensed and adjusted by a nuclear hormone receptor

    Gabrielle E Giese et al.
    Metabolic activity of the methionine/S-adenosylmethionine cycle is sensed and transcriptionally regulated by a nuclear hormone receptor in Caenorhabditis elegans in order to maintain metabolic homeostasis in a tightly controlled regime.

    Characterization of the mechanism by which the RB/E2F pathway controls expression of the cancer genomic DNA deaminase APOBEC3B

    Pieter A Roelofs et al.
    The antiviral and genomic DNA deaminase APOBEC3B is repressed in normal cells by PRC1.6/E2F6 and DREAM/E2F4 complexes and deregulation of this axis provides a unifying mechanism for overexpression in cancer.
