Trans-chromosomal methylation

Greaves, Ian; Groszmann, Michael; Dennis, Elizabeth S.; Peacock, W. James

Description

The epigenome plays a vital role in helping to maintain and regulate cell functions in all organisms. Alleles with differing epigenetic marks in the same nucleus do not function in isolation but can interact in trans to modify the epigenetic state of one or both alleles. This is particularly evident when two divergent epigenomes come together in a hybrid resulting in thousands of alterations to the methylome. These changes mainly involve the methylation patterns at one allele being changed to...[Show more]
