A Histone Methylation Network Regulates Transgenerational Epigenetic Memory in C. elegans
How epigenetic information is transmitted from generation to generation remains largely unknown. Deletion of the C. elegans Histone H3 lysine 4 dimethyl (H3K4me2) demethylase spr-5 leads to inherited accumulation of the euchromatic H3K4me2 mark and progressive decline in fertility. Here we identified multiple chromatin-modifying factors, including novel H3K4me1/me2 and H3K9me3 methyltransferases, an H3K9me3 demethylase and an H3K9me reader, which either suppress or accelerate the progressivedoi:10.17615/b828-sz25 fatcat:2ngptpmcyraaveccmhiaesd7ai
