From nucleotide sequences of more than 70 histones genes in 15 species of eucaryotes the probable frequency was determined for CpG----TpG + CpA substitutions, occurring as a result of deamination of 5-methylcytosine residues in DNA. It was found that histone genes differ in the character of CpG methylation with respect to the species studied and may be… CONTINUE READING
