Variation in DNA methylation patterns is more common among maize inbreds than among tissues

Eichten, Steven; Vaughn, Matthew W; Hermanson, Peter J; Springer, Nathan M

Description

Chromatin modifications, such as DNA methylation, can provide heritable, epigenetic regulation of gene expression in the absence of genetic changes. A role for DNA methylation in meiotically stable marking of repetitive elements and other sequences has been demonstrated in plants. Methylation of DNA is also proposed to play a role in development through providing a mitotic memory of gene expression states established during cellular differentiation. We sought to clarify the relative levels of...[Show more]
