Global inhibition of transcription causes an increase in histone H2A.Z incorporation within gene bodies

H2A.Z histone variant is an important regulator of gene transcription, which is enriched at regulatory regions but is also found within gene bodies. Recent evidence suggests that active recruitment of H2A.Z within gene bodies is required to induce gene repression. In contrast to this view, we show that global inhibition of transcription results in H2A.Z… CONTINUE READING
