Genome function is dynamically regulated in part by chromatin, which consists of the histones, non-histone proteins and RNA molecules that package DNA. Studies in Caenorhabditis elegans and Drosophila melanogaster have contributed substantially to our understanding of molecular mechanisms of genome function in humans, and have revealed conservation of(More)

To date, the pathogenesis of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is only partially understood. A characteristic feature of this disease is the occurrence of antibodies against nuclear antigens. Further, SLE is characterized by a type-I interferon gene signature. A dysregulation of apoptosis and phagocytosis of apoptotic cells is discussed as a central(More)
