The epigenetic phospho-serine 10 modification of histone H3 has been a puzzle due to its association with two apparently opposed chromatin states. It is found at elevated levels on the highly condensed, transcriptionally inactive mitotic chromosomes yet is also correlated with the more extended chromatin configuration of active genes, euchromatic interband regions, and activated heat shock puffs of Drosophila polytene chromosomes. In addition, phosphorylation of histone H3S10 is up-regulated on…

Phosphorylation of histone H3 in plants--a dynamic affair.
Covalent modifications of histones during mitosis and meiosis
TLDR
The combination of these distinct covalent modifications of histones constitutes “the histone code” that regulates various cellular processes, including mitotic and meiotic progression.
Epigenetic Control of Cell Division
TLDR
The function of plant Aurora and Haspin kinases which have the capacity to phosphorylate H3 are described and the cross talk between phosphorylation and other PTMs are discussed.
H3 phosphorylation: dual role in mitosis and interphase.
TLDR
H3 phosphorylation is a mark present in mitosis, where chromatin condensation is necessary, and in transcriptional activation of genes, when chromatin needs to be decondensed, and has been observed on genomic regions of transcriptionally active genes.
The MUT9p kinase phosphorylates histone H3 threonine 3 and is necessary for heritable epigenetic silencing in Chlamydomonas
TLDR
This work reports that a Chlamydomonas reinhardtii mutant defective in a Ser/Thr protein kinase (MUT9p), which phosphorylates histones H3 and H2A, shows deficiencies in the heritable repression of transgenes and transposons.
Histone H3 phosphorylation: Universal code or lineage specific dialects?
TLDR
A detailed understanding of the influence of histone H3 phosphorylation on biological processes may require learning organismal dialects of the histone code.
Quantitative proteomic analysis of histone modifications.
TLDR
Dysregulation of these processes has been intimately associated with the development of diseases such as cancer and is thought to regulate chromatin structure and function by two mechanisms.
Characterisation of the (H3-H4)2-tetramer and its interaction with histone chaperones
TLDR
Novel biochemical and biophysical techniques are employed to address two key questions in the field: the structure of the soluble (H3-H4)2-tetramer, and the conformation of H3 and H4 in complex with histone chaperones.
Study of mitotic chromatin supports a model of bookmarking by histone modifications and reveals nucleosome deposition patterns
TLDR
This study provides evidence to support a model where mitotic bookmarking is achieved by histone modifications, and uncovers new insights into the deposition of nucleosomes during mitosis.

Phosphorylation of histone H3 correlates with transcriptionally active loci.
TLDR
The experiments presented here suggest that H3 phosphorylation has an important role in the induction of transcription during the heat shock response.
Regulation of HP1–chromatin binding by histone H3 methylation and phosphorylation
TLDR
It is shown that HP1α, -β, and -γ are released from chromatin during the M phase of the cell cycle, even though tri-methylation levels of histone H3 lysine 9 remain unchanged, and a regulatory mechanism of protein–protein interactions is established through a combinatorial readout of two adjacent post-translational modifications: a stable methylation and a dynamic phosphorylation mark.
Phosphorylation of serine 10 in histone H3, what for?
TLDR
Phosphorylation of Ser10 in the tails of histone H3 has been extensively studied in many organisms and this modification is involved in both transcription and cell division, two events requiring opposite alterations in the degree of chromatin compaction.
Histone H3 phosphorylation and cell division
TLDR
A novel hypothesis, termed the ‘ready production label’ model, explains the results in the literature and suggests that phosphorylation of histone H3 is a part of a complex signaling mechanism.
Histone H3 serine 10 phosphorylation by Aurora B causes HP1 dissociation from heterochromatin
TLDR
It is shown that antibodies against mitotic chromosomal antigens that are associated with human autoimmune diseases specifically recognize H3 molecules that are modified by both tri-methylation of lysine’9 and phosphorylation of serine 10 (H3K9me3S10ph).
Methylation of histone H3 lysine 9 creates a binding site for HP1 proteins
TLDR
It is shown that mammalian methyltransferases that selectively methylate histone H3 on lysine 9 (Suv39h HMTases) generate a binding site for HP1 proteins—a family of heterochromatic adaptor molecules implicated in both gene silencing and supra-nucleosomal chromatin structure.
Phosphorylation of histone H3 during transcriptional activation depends on promoter structure.
TLDR
The data suggest that transcription occurs without acetylated H4 and H3 in both transgenes in Drosophila polytene chromosomes, and phosphorylation of H3 is linked to transcription and can be modulated by the structure of the promoter.
The language of covalent histone modifications
TLDR
It is proposed that distinct histone modifications, on one or more tails, act sequentially or in combination to form a ‘histone code’ that is, read by other proteins to bring about distinct downstream events.
Role of Histone H3 Lysine 9 Methylation in Epigenetic Control of Heterochromatin Assembly
TLDR
In vivo evidence is provided that lysine 9 of histone H3 (H3 Lys9) is preferentially methylated by the Clr4 protein at heterochromatin-associated regions in fission yeast, defining a conserved pathway wherein sequential histone modifications establish a “histone code” essential for the epigenetic inheritance of heterochROMatin assembly.
