Epigenetic regulation of the honey bee transcriptome: unravelling the nature of methylated genes

Foret, Sylvain; Kucharski, Robert; Pittelkow, Yvonne; Lockett, Gabrielle; Maleszka, Ryszard


BACKGROUND: Epigenetic modification of DNA via methylation is one of the key inventions in eukaryotic evolution. It provides a source for the switching of gene activities, the maintenance of stable phenotypes and the integration of environmental and genomic signals. Although this process is widespread among eukaryotes, both the patterns of methylation and their relevant biological roles not only vary noticeably in different lineages, but often are poorly understood. In addition, the...[Show more]
