It is also important to note, however, that the specific enzymes catalyzing these histone modifications may also possess dual or multi-modal functionality and regulate other non-histone systems. Sotos syndrome is characterized by excessive pre- and post-natal growth, advanced bone age, distinct facial features, macrocephaly, neurodevelopmental and intellectual delay, and in some instances seizures (Sotos et al., 1964; Kurotaki et al., 2002). Key residues in the KAT domain have been identified as E680 and C646, wherein the former actively interacts with the acetyl CoA cofactor (Klein et al., 2014).

Histone modification levels are predictive for gene expression. Histone methylation in higher plants. Members of the family of arginine methyltransferase (PRMT1) enzymes carry out these modifications; their effects on chromatin structure can lead to either transcriptional activating or repressing consequences depending on context and code (Chen, 1999; Wang, 2001; Klose and Zhang, 2007).

The mutations associated with GPS and SBBYSS largely occur at distinct positions on the KAT6B gene, and for classification purposes the KAT6B mutations can be divided into four groups (Campeau et al., 2012; Sheikh and Akhtar, 2019).

Class IIa HDACs (4, 5, 7, and 9) are shuttled between the nucleus and cytoplasm, but possess no intrinsic deacetylase activity and are thought to act as scaffolds for other co-repressor systems (Mielcarek et al., 2015; Bonnaud et al., 2016).

For a number of these cases, similar or overlapping clinical features can be observed even though the specific gene mutated may encode a factor that seemingly regulates opposite aspects of epigenetic control. De novo nonsense mutations in KAT6A, a lysine acetyl-transferase gene, cause a syndrome including microcephaly and global developmental delay. Genet. While KAT6A and KAT6B acetylate residues with high specificity, CBP and HDAC4/HDAC3 complexes have a broader range of targets. Further research into these post-translational histone modification diseases, and developing additional model systems to complement those currently available, will be important to delineate a clearer understanding of the molecular, cellular and pathological mechanisms underlying these conditions, and ultimately the development of translationally relevant therapeutics. J. Med. 85,86 Additionally, histone modification variations have been shown in human monocytes cultured under high glucose at a genome-wide level. J. Hum. Nature 376, 348–351.

For example, acetylation of K9 and K27 on histone H3 (H3K9ac and H3K27ac) is usually associated … If the mutation is proximal, the transcript undergoes nonsense-mediated decay, and symptoms arise through haploinsufficiency (Kennedy et al., 2019). Epigenetic processes are critical for governing the complex spatiotemporal patterns of gene expression in neurodevelopment. Histone acetylation is the most well-defined histone modification and is linked with the lysine residues on the N-terminal tails of histones H3 (Lys 9, Lys 14, Lys 18, Lys 23) and H4 (Lys 5, Lys 8, Lys 12, Lys 16).

These charges form an electrostatic interaction with the negative charge of DNA, which tightens the association of the DNA with the histone protein and encourages chromatin compaction.

While histone modifications affect chromatin structure and enable/restrict transcriptional responsiveness, the actions of specific transcription factors and transcriptional complexes dictate the dynamics of the response. Hat1) acetylate histones prior to nuclear localization and chromatin assembly, whereas the nuclear HATs acetylate histones in a manner associated with transcription and other DNAdependent processes. Clinical features are variable between patients, however, hypotonia, microcephaly, craniofacial dysmorphisms, congenital cardiac defects, gastrointestinal problems, feeding difficulties, strabismus, and sleep disturbances have been reported (Arboleda et al., 2015; Millan et al., 2016; Kennedy et al., 2019). doi: 10.7554/eLife.01503.027, Lee, M.

Lysine methylation is carried out by the enzymes belonging to the disruptor of telomeric silencing 1-like (DOT1L) family, or to the family of SET domain containing proteins (Martin and Zhang, 2005; Klose and Zhang, 2007). Deletion mutations can occur along the entire length of the gene or affect specific parts, although mutations in reading frame exons, that encode the histone acetyltransferase domain, are most common (Barco, 2007; Korzus, 2017). The cortex and olfactory bulb of these mice were smaller than normal, possessing fewer cells overall, GAD67-positive interneurons and large pyramidal neurons in the cortex (Thomas et al., 2000). Histone acetylation and methylation are the two major modifications that function as a specific transcription regulator in response to various cellular signals. Nature 449, 689–694.

Originally reported by Shi and colleagues, lysine specific demethylase 1 (LSD1) was the first histone demethylase described (Shi et al., 2003, 2004). This mouse expresses a truncated protein that lacks methyltransferase activity but should retain its more proximal amino terminal domains (Bjornsson et al., 2014).
