Summary : In a simplified form, epigenetics refers to heritable changes in phenotype that are not due to changes in the underlying DNA sequence. In this book, epigenetic mechanisms of regulation and dysregulation in health and disease are explored in great depth. Detailed chapters on epigenetic processes including DNA methylation and chromatin ...

Summary : Epigenetic mechanisms are of paramount importance in cancer. Historically, epigenetic studies of cancer have focused on aberrant DNA methylation events. Far less is known about the role of histone modifications in epigenetic mechanisms of human cancers, and of disease in general. There are a number of reasons why histone modifications ...

Summary : In multicellular organisms the establishment, maintenance, and programmed alterations of cell-type specific gene expression patterns are regulated by epigenetic mechanisms. Thus, epigenetic alterations (DNA methylation, DNA associated Polycomb-Trithorax protein complexes, histone modifications) ensure the unique transcriptional activity and phenotypic diversity of diploid cells that carry identical or nearly identical DNA ...

Summary : Epigenetics is the field that studies the changes that regulate gene expression without affecting the coding sequence of DNA, such as changes in DNA methylation and postranslational modifications at the histone tails. Using chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) scientists are able to study which proteins (histones or transcription factors) bind to DNA ...

Summary : Epigenetic mechanisms including DNA methylation and histone modifications are essential in many cellular processes including gene expression, chromatin compaction, genetic imprinting, cell differentiation, and X-chromosome and retrotransposon inactivation. Disruption of epigenetic mechanisms through genetic or environmental factors results in development of many diseases, including cancer. Benzo(a)pyrene (BaP) is ...
