  • Active turnover of DNA methylation during cell fate decisions
    Nat. Rev. Genet. (IF 33.133) Pub Date : 2020-10-06
    Aled Parry; Steffen Rulands; Wolf Reik

    DNA methylation is a key layer of epigenetic regulation. The deposition of methylation marks relies on the catalytic activity of DNA methyltransferases (DNMTs), and their active removal relies on the activity of ten–eleven translocation (TET) enzymes. Paradoxically, in important biological contexts these antagonistic factors are co-expressed and target overlapping genomic regions. The ensuing cyclic

  • African cattle adaptations
    Nat. Rev. Genet. (IF 33.133) Pub Date : 2020-10-05

    Nat. Rev. Genet. (IF 33.133) Pub Date : 2020-09-28
    James B. Stewart; Patrick F. Chinnery

    Contrary to the long-held view that most humans harbour only identical mitochondrial genomes, deep resequencing has uncovered unanticipated extreme genetic variation within mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA). Most, if not all, humans contain multiple mtDNA genotypes (heteroplasmy); specific patterns of variants accumulate in different tissues, including cancers, over time; and some variants are preferentially

    Nat. Rev. Genet. (IF 33.133) Pub Date : 2020-08-17
    Anna S Nam,Ronan Chaligne,Dan A Landau

    Cancer represents an evolutionary process through which growing malignant populations genetically diversify, leading to tumour progression, relapse and resistance to therapy. In addition to genetic diversity, the cell-to-cell variation that fuels evolutionary selection also manifests in cellular states, epigenetic profiles, spatial distributions and interactions with the microenvironment. Therefore

  • Killer queens and supergenes.
    Nat. Rev. Genet. (IF 33.133) Pub Date : 2020-08-14
    Dorothy Clyde

    A study in PNAS describes a maternal-effect killer supergene that regulates social behaviour in Alpine silver ants. Queens carrying the ‘killer’ haplotype fail to produce live progeny homozygous for the alternative haplotype, ensuring all colonies adopt a multiple-queen, rather than single-queen, social structure.

    Nat. Rev. Genet. (IF 33.133) Pub Date : 2020-06-08
    Zhiyuan Chen,Yi Zhang

    Genomic imprinting and X-chromosome inactivation (XCI) are classic epigenetic phenomena that involve transcriptional silencing of one parental allele. Germline-derived differential DNA methylation is the best-studied epigenetic mark that initiates imprinting, but evidence indicates that other mechanisms exist. Recent studies have revealed that maternal trimethylation of H3 on lysine 27 (H3K27me3) mediates

  • Gene regulatory programmes of tissue regeneration.
    Nat. Rev. Genet. (IF 33.133) Pub Date : 2020-06-05
    Joseph A Goldman,Kenneth D Poss

    Regeneration is the process by which organisms replace lost or damaged tissue, and regenerative capacity can vary greatly among species, tissues and life stages. Tissue regeneration shares certain hallmarks of embryonic development, in that lineage-specific factors can be repurposed upon injury to initiate morphogenesis; however, many differences exist between regeneration and embryogenesis. Recent
