Chromatin methylation: who's on first?

Curr Biol. 2002 Oct 15;12(20):R694-5. doi: 10.1016/s0960-9822(02)01208-3.

Abstract

Two recent studies have exploited Arabidopsis mutants and chromatin immunoprecipitation to reveal the complexity of the interaction between histone H3 methyl K9 and cytosine methylation, two epigenetic marks that characterize silent chromatin.
