    In vivo Firre and Dxz4 deletion elucidates roles for autosomal gene regulation

    Daniel Andergassen et al.
    The X-linked loci Firre and Dxz4 are involved in autosomal gene regulation rather than XCI biology.

    IFI16, a nuclear innate immune DNA sensor, mediates epigenetic silencing of herpesvirus genomes by its association with H3K9 methyltransferases SUV39H1 and GLP

    Arunava Roy et al.
    The innate immune DNA sensor IFI16 is in association with H3K9 methyltransferases SUV39H1 and GLP under physiological conditions in the nucleus which facilitates the epigenetic silencing of foreign viral DNA.

    Chromosome territory formation attenuates the translocation potential of cells

    Leah F Rosin et al.
    The translocation potential of cells can be modulated by Condensin II activity during interphase.

    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..

    CTCF confers local nucleosome resiliency after DNA replication and during mitosis

    Nick Owens et al.
    In contrast to other transcription factors, CTCF and Esrrb rapidly regain binding after replication and remain bound to their targets during mitosis, preserving local nucleosome organization throughout the cell cycle.

    Phage integration alters the respiratory strategy of its host

    Jeffrey N Carey et al.
    A temperate bacteriophage reprograms the oxygen response of a bacterial signaling system by replacing a host-encoded promoter with a phage-encoded promoter.

    Cis-regulatory basis of sister cell type divergence in the vertebrate retina

    Daniel P Murphy et al.
    While photoreceptor and bipolar cells exhibit very similar cis-regulatory grammars, subtle differences in homeodomain motif enrichment represent a key distinction driving the divergence in their transcriptomes.

    Dynamic turnover of centromeres drives karyotype evolution in Drosophila

    Ryan Bracewell et al.
    De novo formation of centromeres creates diverse karyotypes in flies and is accompanied by rapid turnover of centromere-associated satellite repeats.

    H3K9me2 orchestrates inheritance of spatial positioning of peripheral heterochromatin through mitosis

    Andrey Poleshko et al.
    The histone modification H3K9me2 marks peripheral heterochromatin and ensures positional information is safeguarded through cell division such that individual lamina-associated domains are re-established at the nuclear periphery in daughter nuclei.

    Androgen-regulated transcription of ESRP2 drives alternative splicing patterns in prostate cancer

    Jennifer Munkley et al.
    The male steroid hormone testosterone regulates splicing patterns by controlling the expression of a key splicing regulator protein.
