The aim of this study was to identify in human cells common targets of histone H3 lysine 9 (H3-Lys9) methylation, a modification that is generally associated with gene silencing. After chromatin immunoprecipitation using an H3-Lys9 methylated antibody, we cloned the recovered DNA and sequenced 47 independent clones. Of these, 38 clones (81%) contained… CONTINUE READING
