Emerging role of epigenetics in the actions of alcohol.
TLDR
These epigenetic studies have opened up a new avenue of investigation in the alcohol field and are beginning to offer novel insight towards defining the molecular actions of ethanol and may contribute to potential therapeutic targets at the nucleosomal level.
Histone H3 phosphorylation and phosphoacetylation in the liver of rats treated in vivo with acute ethanol
TLDR
Ethanol binge induction of histone H3 phosphorylation and phosphoacetylation in vivo in liver are associated with the promoters of genes for the first time, relevant to the identification of “early” molecular processes involved in the binge induced liver injury.
Alcohol-induced epigenetic alterations to developmentally crucial genes regulating neural stemness and differentiation.
TLDR
Results indicate that primary neurospheres maintained as stem cells in vitro are susceptible to alcohol-induced perturbation of the histone code and errors in the epigenetic program and indicate that alterations to chromatin structure may represent a crucial component of alcohol teratogenesis and progress toward a better understanding of the developmental origins of fetal alcohol spectrum disorders.
Binge alcohol-induced microvesicular liver steatosis and injury are associated with down-regulation of hepatic Hdac 1, 7, 9, 10, 11 and up-regulation of Hdac 3.
TLDR
Deregulation of hepatic Hdac expression likely plays a major role in the binge alcohol-induced hepatic steatosis and liver injury by affecting lipogenesis and fatty acid β-oxidation.
Ethanol and acetaldehyde exposure induces specific epigenetic modifications in the prodynorphin gene promoter in a human neuroblastoma cell line
TLDR
A link has been observed between gene expression alterations and selective epigenetic modulation in the prodynorphin promoter region, demonstrating a specificity of the changes induced by ethanol and acetaldehyde.
Epigenetics of proteasome inhibition in the liver of rats fed ethanol chronically.
TLDR
The role of proteasome inhibition in regulating epigenetic mechanisms, and its link to liver injury in alcoholic liver disease, is thus a promising approach to study liver injury due to chronic ethanol consumption.
Epigenetic regulation in alcoholic liver disease
TLDR
Key epigenetic mechanisms that are dysregulated by alcohol in the liver are summarized and the role of alcohol-mediated oxidative stress in epigenetic regulation in ALD is described.

Epigenetic regulation in alcoholic liver disease.
TLDR
Key epigenetic mechanisms that are dysregulated by alcohol in the liver are summarized and a better understanding of these mechanisms is crucial for designing novel epigenetic based therapies to ameliorate ALD.

TLDR
First evidence that ethanol increases acetylation of H3-Lys9 through modulation of HAT(s) is provided and that histone acetylations may underlie the mechanism for ethanol-induced ADH I gene expression is provided.
Differentially methylated forms of histone H3 show unique association patterns with inactive human X chromosomes
Studies of histone methylation have shown that H3 can be methylated at lysine 4 (Lys4) or lysine 9 (Lys9). Whereas H3–Lys4 methylation has been correlated with active gene expression, H3–Lys9

Histone H3 lysine 9 methylation is an epigenetic imprint of facultative heterochromatin
TLDR
It is shown that H3–Lys9 methylation is retained through mitosis, indicating that it might provide an epigenetic imprint for the maintenance of the inactive state, and suggest the existence of an Suv39h-HP1-independent pathway regulating H3-Lys 9 methylation of facultative heterochromatin.
A Chromosomal Memory Triggered by Xist Regulates Histone Methylation in X Inactivation
TLDR
The data show that Xist expression early in ES cell differentiation establishes a chromosomal memory, which is maintained in the absence of silencing, and one consequence of this memory is the ability to introduce H3K27m3 efficiently after the restrictive time point on the chromosome that has expressed Xist early.
Cascade of Distinct Histone Modifications during Collagenase Gene Activation
TLDR
The results suggest that collagenase gene activation involves a dynamic recruitment of different factors and that in addition to acetylation, histone H3 lysine 4 di- and trimethylation and hist one H3 serine 10 phosphorylation are important steps in the activation of this gene.
