Latest Histone Stories
Like a child awaiting the arrival of Christmas, embryonic stem cells exist in a state of permanent anticipation.
Researchers at Emory University School of Medicine have determined the structures of two enzymes that customize histones, the spool-like proteins around which DNA coils inside the cell.
A team led by Penn State's Ross Hardison, T. Ming Chu Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, has taken a large step toward unraveling how regulatory proteins control the production of gene products during development and growth.
A team of Princeton biologists and engineers has dramatically improved the speed and accuracy of measuring an enigmatic set of proteins that influences almost every aspect of how cells and tissues function.
The search for the holy grail of regenerative medicineâ€”the ability to "grow back" a perfect body part when one is lost to injury or diseaseâ€”has been under way for years, yet the steps involved in this seemingly magic process are still poorly understood.
A study from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has identified a key player in a molecular process essential for DNA replication within cells.
Despite the fact that the human genome sequence lists nearly every single DNA base of the roughly 3 billion bases that make up a human genome, it has remained a biological mystery as to how its function is regulated.
A Florida State University College of Medicine researcher has solved a century-old mystery about proteins that play a vital role in the transfer of the human genetic code from one cell to another. The discovery could lead to finding new ways to help the body fight a variety of diseases, including cancer.
EMBL scientists discover a new way to read the histone code by studying streamlined sperm.
The Stowers Institute's Gerton Lab has provided new evidence to clarify the structure of nucleosomes containing Cse4, a centromere-specific histone protein required for proper kinetochore function, which plays a critical role in the process of mitosis.
