We mapped histone H3 lysine 4 di- and trimethylation and lysine 9/14 acetylation across the nonrepetitive portions of human chromosomes 21 and 22 and compared patterns of lysine 4 dimethylation for several orthologous human and mouse loci. Both chromosomes show punctate sites enriched for modified histones. Sites showing trimethylation correlate with transcription starts, while those showing mainly dimethylation occur elsewhere in the vicinity of active genes. Punctate methylation patterns are… Expand
DNA methylation-histone modification relationships across the desmin locus in human primary cells
TLDR
The results constitute the first study correlating patterns of histone modifications and underlying DNA methylation of a muscle-specific LCR and its associated downstream gene region whilst additionally placing this within a much broader genomic context. Expand
Profile of Histone Lysine Methylation across Transcribed Mammalian Chromatin
TLDR
A comparative assessment of all six known positions of histone lysine methylation indicates that H4K20 and H3K27 monomethylation are versatile and dynamic with respect to gene activity, suggesting the existence of novel site-specific methyltransferases and demethylases coupled to the transcription cycle. Expand
Evolutionary conservation of histone modifications in mammals.
TLDR
The results of this study support the view that in mammalian genomes a common mechanism maintains histone modifications against both genetic and environmental changes. Expand
Genome-wide prediction of conserved and nonconserved enhancers by histone acetylation patterns.
TLDR
This study exploits the highly conserved nature of epigenetic modifications to identify potential transcriptional enhancers and establishes a novel genome-wide method for identifying regulatory elements not discernable by comparative genomics alone. Expand
Distinct and predictive chromatin signatures of transcriptional promoters and enhancers in the human genome
TLDR
Insight is given into the connections between chromatin modifications and transcriptional regulatory activity and a novel functional enhancer for the carnitine transporter SLC22A5 (OCTN2) is uncovered, providing a new tool for the functional annotation of the human genome. Expand
Genome-wide patterns of histone modifications in fission yeast
TLDR
Mechanisms involving different HDACs modulate histone acetylation levels to maintain a 5′ to 3′ polarity within the coding regions of HDAC mutants and wild type. Expand
High-Resolution Profiling of Histone Methylations in the Human Genome
TLDR
High-resolution maps for the genome-wide distribution of 20 histone lysine and arginine methylations as well as histone variant H2A.Z, RNA polymerase II, and the insulator binding protein CTCF across the human genome using the Solexa 1G sequencing technology are generated. Expand
Natural variation of histone modification and its impact on gene expression in the rat genome.
TLDR
It is suggested that genetic variation has a widespread impact on histone trimethylation marks that may help to uncover novel genotype-phenotype relationships and that a joint analysis significantly enhanced the prediction of gene expression traits (eQTLs). Expand
Effector Proteins for Methylated Histones: An Expanding Family
TLDR
Recent data on the recognition specificity and biological significance of proteins that associate with methylated histone lysines are highlighted. Expand
Enhancer requirement for histone methylation linked with gene activation
TLDR
The results indicate that an enhancer has roles in establishing active histone methylation patterns linked with gene transcription rather than removing methylation linked with genes inactivation. Expand

Histone H3 lysine 4 methylation patterns in higher eukaryotic genes
TLDR
The results indicate that in metazoa, di- and tri-methylation of K4/H3 is linked to active transcription and that significant differences exist in the genome-wide methylation pattern as compared with S. cerevisiae. Expand
Distinct localization of histone H3 acetylation and H3-K4 methylation to the transcription start sites in the human genome.
TLDR
This work developed a chromatin scanning technique called ChAP, coupling the chromatin immunoprecipitation assay with arbitrarily primed PCR, which allows for the rapid and unbiased comparison of histone modification patterns within the eukaryotic nucleus, and suggests that the large transcribed regions of human genes are maintained in a deacetylated conformation in regions read by elongating polymerase. Expand
Methylation of histone H3 Lys 4 in coding regions of active genes
TLDR
It is concluded that Set1 facilitates transcription, in part, by protecting active coding regions from deacetylation, in the context of recent studies showing that Lys 4 methylation precludes histone de acetylase recruitment. Expand
High-resolution genome-wide mapping of histone modifications
TLDR
Using GMAT, it is found that the highest acetylation levels are detected in the 5′ end of a gene's coding region, but not in the promoter, which indicates that GMAT should find valuable applications in mapping target sites of chromatin-modifying enzymes. Expand
Active genes are tri-methylated at K4 of histone H3
TLDR
It is shown that the Saccharomyces cerevisiae Set1 protein can catalyse di- and tri-methylation of K4 and stimulate the activity of many genes, establishing the concept of methyl status as a determinant for gene activity and extending considerably the complexity of histone modifications. Expand
The histone modification pattern of active genes revealed through genome-wide chromatin analysis of a higher eukaryote.
TLDR
A genome-wide chromatin structure analysis in a higher eukaryote found a binary pattern of histone modifications among euchromatic genes, with active genes being hyperacetylated for H3 and H4 and hypermethylated at Lys 4 and Lys 79 of H3, and inactive genes being hypomethylated and deacetylation at the same residues.

A Complex Chromatin Landscape Revealed by Patterns of Nuclease Sensitivity and Histone Modification within the Mouse β-Globin Locus
TLDR
The extent of nuclease sensitivity and the pattern of histone modifications associated with the mouse β-globin genes in adult erythroid tissue are determined and the complexity of broad structural changes that accompany gene activation is illustrated. Expand
Histone H3.3 is enriched in covalent modifications associated with active chromatin.
TLDR
It is proposed that histone modifications are tied to the alternative nucleosome assembly pathways that use primarily H3 at replication forks and H3.3 at actively transcribed genes in a replication-independent manner. Expand
Correlation Between Histone Lysine Methylation and Developmental Changes at the Chicken β-Globin Locus
TLDR
A mechanism by which the insulator in the β-globin locus can protect the globin genes from being silenced by adjacent condensed chromatin is proposed. Expand
Methylation of histone H3 K4 mediates association of the Isw1p ATPase with chromatin.
TLDR
It is shown that on certain actively transcribed genes, the Isw1p chromatin remodeling ATPase requires K4 H3 methylation to associate with chromatin in vivo. Expand
