Cheryl Arrowsmith, Ph.D. – VARI Seminar Series

March 15 @ 12:00 pm

Probing the epigenome for therapeutic opportunities Regulation of gene expression via chromatin associated factors and alterations of the cellular epigenome are fundamental to most biological processes, and many disease mechanisms. We are taking a protein family approach to understand how chromatin regulatory proteins recognize specific histone tail sequences and their posttranslational modifications.  Proteins such as histone methyltransferases, demethylases, acetyltransferases and bromodomains and chromodomains mediate nuclear signaling networks that regulate epigenetic cellular states and gene expression programs. Systematic structural and biochemical…
