Histone lysine methylation is a critical marker for controlling gene expression. The position and extent of methylation (mono-, di-, or tri-) controls the binding of effector proteins that determine whether the associated DNA is expressed or not. Dysregulation of histone protein methylation has been associated with a number of types of cancer, and development of inhibitors for the effector proteins is becoming an active area of research. For this reason, understanding the mechanism by which… CONTINUE READING
