Shilatifard A (2008) Molecular implementation and physiological roles for histone H3 lysine 4 (H3K4) methylation. Curr Opin Cell Biol 20(3):341-8
Abstract: Chromosomal surfaces are ornamented with a variety of post-translational modifications of histones, which are required for the regulation of many of the DNA-templated processes. Such histone modifications include acetylation, sumoylation, phosphorylation, ubiquitination, and methylation. Histone modifications can either function by disrupting chromosomal contacts or by regulating non-histone protein interactions with chromatin. In this review, recent findings will be discussed regarding the regulation of the implementation and physiological significance for one such histone modification, histone H3 lysine 4 (H3K4) methylation by the yeast COMPASS and mammalian COMPASS-like complexes.
