Characterization of Gcn5 histone acetyltransferase in Schizosaccharomyces pombe

The organisation of eukaryotic DNA into chromatin provides a natural barrier that prevents full access to the DNA thereby inhibiting events such as transcription, replication and repair. In order f

Pin1 promotes histone H1 dephosphorylation and stabilizes its binding to chromatin

The prolyl isomerase Pin1 stimulates the dephosphorylation of histone H1, stabilizing its binding to chromatin at transcriptionally active chromatin.

The decline of induced transcription: a case of enzymatic symbiosis

New findings indicate that CREB can recruit histone deacetylase HDAC1 and protein phosphatase 1 in a concerted action, thus leading to attenuated transcription.

Role of ASF1 in histone deposition during replication

The bromodomain: a chromatin-targeting module?

This finding suggests that the regulatory effects of histone acetylation may be exerted by bromodomain-containing proteins.

Promoter targeting and chromatin remodeling by the SWI/SNF complex.

Rad6-dependent ubiquitination of histone H2B in yeast.

UH2B was not detected in rad6 mutants, which are defective for the ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme Ubc2, thus identifying Rad6 as the major cellular activity that ubiquitinates H2B in yeast.

Kinase Activity and Phosphorylation of the Largest Subunit of TFIIF Transcription Factor*

Mutation analysis strongly suggests that autophosphorylation of both residues at position serine 385 and threonine 389 regulates the transcription elongation process.

Mitotic chromosome condensation.

The structure and composition of interphase and mitotic chromosomes are reviewed and the role of cis sites, histones, topoisomerase II, and SMC proteins in condensation is presented to explore the relevance of this process to other processes such as gene expression.

Patterns of histone acetylation.

Study of the specificity of site utilisation in the monoacetyl, diacetyl and triacetyl forms of histones H3, H4 and H2B reinforces the view that lysine acetylation in core histones is a very specific phenomenon that plays several functionally distinct roles.

Signaling—2000 and Beyond

ATP-dependent remodeling and acetylation as regulators of chromatin fluidity.

This review focuses on ATP-dependent remodeling complexes and how these complexes interact with acetylation complexes to regulate gene expression.
