H1 histone as a trans-acting factor involved in protecting genomic DNA from full methylation.

This review aims to explain why H1 histone can be considered as a protein involved in protecting genomic DNA from full methylation. Some of our results indicated that, to explain the multiple roles in which H1 histone seems to be involved, it is important to consider that it is not a unique protein but a family of genetic somatic variants and that every one… CONTINUE READING
