Structural insights into histone lysine demethylation.

Posttranslational modifications of histone tails are crucial epigenetic marks that regulate diverse cellular processes. Histone lysine methylation activates or represses transcription, depending on the site and degree of these modifications. Two classes of histone lysine demethylases remove histone methylation. Lysine demethylase 1 (KDM1, also known as LSD1… CONTINUE READING
