Chicken embryonic stem cells and primordial germ cells display different heterochromatic histone marks than their mammalian counterparts

Abstract

Chromatin epigenetics participate in control of gene expression during metazoan development. DNA methylation and post-translational modifications (PTMs) of histones have been extensively characterised in cell types present in, or derived from, mouse embryos. In embryonic stem cells (ESCs) derived from blastocysts, factors involved in deposition of… (More)
