The discovery of a new nucleotide in the mouse brain opens the door to a new domain of epigenetic DNA modificationAnyone who studied a little genetics in high school has heard of adenine, thymine, guanine and cytosine "“ the A,T,G and C that make up the DNA code. But those are not the whole story. The rise of epigenetics in the past decade has drawn attention to a fifth nucleotide, 5-methylcytosine (5-mC), that sometimes replaces cytosine in the famous DNA double helix to regulate which...
