CHD3 Proteins and Polycomb Group Proteins Antagonistically Determine Cell Identity in Arabidopsis
Dynamic regulation of chromatin structure is of fundamental importance for modulating genomic activities in higher eukaryotes. The opposing activities of Polycomb group (PcG) and trithorax groupExpand

The CHD3 Chromatin Remodeler PICKLE and Polycomb Group Proteins Antagonistically Regulate Meristem Activity in the Arabidopsis Root[C][W]
We report that the chromatin remodeling factor PICKLE and Polycomb group proteins antagonistically determine cell identity. Our study highlights an important role of PICKLE and Polycomb groupExpand

CHITINASE-LIKE1/POM-POM1 and Its Homolog CTL2 Are Glucan-Interacting Proteins Important for Cellulose Biosynthesis in Arabidopsis[W][OA]
Cell wall and cellulose structure is imperative for proper cell elongation and, consequently, the architecture of plants, but components regulating cellulose structure are still elusive. This articleExpand

The Chromodomain of LIKE HETEROCHROMATIN PROTEIN 1 Is Essential for H3K27me3 Binding and Function during Arabidopsis Development
Polycomb group (PcG) proteins are essential to maintain gene expression patterns during development. Transcriptional repression by PcG proteins involves trimethylation of H3K27 (H3K27me3) by PolycombExpand

Whole genome sequencing as a tool to investigate a cluster of seven cases of listeriosis in Austria and Germany, 2011–2013
A cluster of seven human cases of listeriosis occurred in Austria and in Germany between April 2011 and July 2013. The Listeria monocytogenes serovar (SV) 1/2b isolates shared pulsed-field gelExpand

Bisulphite sequencing of plant genomic DNA.
DNA methylation is a prominent epigenetic mark and extensively found within plant genomes. It has two major roles- first, defending the genome against invasive DNA and second, regulation of geneExpand
