Elucidating how the metazoan genome is organised into distinct functional domains is fundamental to understanding all aspects of normal cellular growth and development. The "histone code" hypothesis predicts that post-translational modifications of specific histone residues regulate genomic function by selectively recruiting nuclear factors that modify chromatin structure. A paradigm supporting this hypothesis is the preferential binding of the silencing protein heterochromatin protein 1 (HP1)...[Show more]
