Researcher at Fundacion Ciencia & Vida publishes in Nature Reviews Genetics
January 26, 2021
The Director of the Epigenetics and Chromatin Laboratory of Fundacion Ciencia & Vida, Dr. Alejandra Loyola, participated in Nature Reviews Genetics with a publication entitled “Parental nucleosome segregation and the inheritance of cellular identity”.
The article is a review of recent findings detailing local segregation of parental nucleosomes during DNA replication. It is here that important advances are highlighted regarding how histone methyltransferases associated with the establishment of repressive chromatin domains facilitate epigenetic inheritance.
