Combined Action of PHD and Chromo Domains Directs the Rpd3S HDAC to Transcribed Chromatin
TLDR
In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, it is found that methyl H3K36 nucleosome recognition by Rpd3S also requires the plant homeobox domain (PHD) of its Rco1 subunit, demonstrating the first combinatorial domain requirement within a protein complex to read a specific histone code.
Histone H3 Lysine 36 Dimethylation (H3K36me2) Is Sufficient to Recruit the Rpd3s Histone Deacetylase Complex and to Repress Spurious Transcription*
TLDR
Using methyl-lysine analog technology, it is demonstrated that the histone deacetylase complex, Rpd3S, can distinguish the nucleosomes methylated to different extents and that K36me2 is sufficient to target RPD3S in vitro.
Two Saccharomyces cerevisiae JmjC Domain Proteins Demethylate Histone H3 Lys36 in Transcribed Regions to Promote Elongation*♦
TLDR
It is shown that overexpression of either Jhd1 or Rph1, two JmjC-domain proteins, bypasses the requirement for the positive elongation factor gene BUR1, and this indicates that a general function of histone demethylases for H3 Lys36 is to promote transcription elongation by antagonizing repressive Lys36 methylation by Set2.
Histone Deacetylases RPD3 and HOS2 Regulate the Transcriptional Activation of DNA Damage-Inducible Genes
TLDR
Using mutants specific for the Rpd3L complex, it is shown that the complex is responsible for regulating RNR3 and unlike what was described for the GAL genes, RPD3L regulates the activation of R NR3 by deacetylating nucleosomes at the promoter, not at the open reading frame.
Histone Deacetylases RPD3 and HOS2 Regulate the Transcriptional Activation of DNA Damage-Inducible Genes
TLDR
Reduced or unregulated constitutive histone H4 acetyltransferase Esa1 is detrimental to promoter activity, suggesting that HDAC-dependent mechanisms are in place to reset promoters to allow high levels of transcription.
The Mi-2 Homolog Mit1 Actively Positions Nucleosomes within Heterochromatin To Suppress Transcription
TLDR
It is reported that Mit1 mobilizes histone octamers in vitro and requires ATP hydrolysis and conserved chromatin tethering domains, including a previously unrecognized chromodomain, to remodel nucleosomes and silence transcription.
Histone H3 Lysine 36 Methylation Antagonizes Silencing in Saccharomyces cerevisiae Independently of the Rpd3S Histone Deacetylase Complex
TLDR
In yeast, methylation of histone H3 on lysine 36 (H3-K36) is catalyzed by the NSD1 leukemia oncoprotein homolog Set2, and antagonism of silencing is independent of the only known effector of this conserved histone modification.
Caractérisation de la fonction des complexes histone déacétylases Rpd3S et Set3C
TLDR
This thesis focuses on the characterization of the function and of the recruitment mechanism of HDAC complexes Rpd3S and Set3C, and on the results obtained through chromatin immunoprecipitation coupled to tiling microarrays (ChIP-chip).

Targeted Recruitment of the Sin3-Rpd3 Histone Deacetylase Complex Generates a Highly Localized Domain of Repressed Chromatin In Vivo
TLDR
By directly analyzing the chromatin structure of a repressed promoter in yeast cells, it is demonstrated that transcriptional repression is associated with localized histone deacetylation, defining a novel mechanism of transcriptional repressive which involves targeted recruitment of a histone-modifying activity and localized perturbation of Chromatin structure.
Methylation of Histone H3 by Set2 in Saccharomyces cerevisiae Is Linked to Transcriptional Elongation by RNA Polymerase II
TLDR
It is shown here that yeast Set2 copurifies with RNA polymerase II (RNAPII), and Chromatin immunoprecipitation analyses demonstrated that Set2 and histone H3 Lys36 methylation are associated with the coding regions of several genes that were tested and correlate with active transcription.
Phosphorylation of RNA polymerase II CTD regulates H3 methylation in yeast.
Histone methylation is now realized to be a pivotal regulator of gene transcription. Although recent studies have shed light on a trans-histone regulatory pathway that controls H3 Lys 4 and H3 Lys 79
Transcriptional repression by UME6 involves deacetylation of lysine 5 of histone H4 by RPD3
TLDR
The mechanism by which RPD3 represses gene activity is studied by examining the acetylation state of histone proteins at UME6-regulated genes by using antibodies specific for individual acetylated sites in H4 to immunoprecipitate chromatin fragments.
A Novel Domain in Set2 Mediates RNA Polymerase II Interaction and Couples Histone H3 K36 Methylation with Transcript Elongation
TLDR
It is determined that deletion of SET2, its SRI domain, or amino acid substitutions at K36 result in an alteration of RNAPII occupancy levels over transcribing genes, which indicates K36 methylation, established by the Sri domain-mediated association of Set2 with RNAP II, plays an important role in the transcription elongation process.
Histone H2B Ubiquitylation Is Associated with Elongating RNA Polymerase II
TLDR
A role for Rad6 and H2B ubiquitylation during the elongation cycle of transcription is indicated and a mechanism by which H3 methylation may be regulated is suggested.
The Set2 Histone Methyltransferase Functions through the Phosphorylated Carboxyl-terminal Domain of RNA Polymerase II*
TLDR
Results suggest that Set2 is involved in regulating transcription elongation through its direct contact with pol II, and that deletions in the CTD reduce in vivo levels of H3 lysine 36 methylation.
