Poster Information
Abstract: DNA methylation, one of the most studied epigenetic modifications, refers to the addition of a methyl group to the fifth carbon of cytosine (C) catalyzed by DNA methyltransferases (Dnmts), forming 5-methylcytosine (5mC). DNA methylation predominantly occurs in CpGs but is also found in non-CpG contexts. DNA methylation is heritable and has been associated with multiple cellular processes, including transcriptional repression, transposon inactivation, X chromosome inactivation, embryonic development, genomic imprinting, and the alteration of chromatin structure.Summary: DNA methylation is heritable and has been associated with multiple cellular processes, including transcriptional repression, transposon inactivation, X chromosome inactivation, embryonic development, genomic imprinting, and the alteration of chromatin structure.References: https://www.cd-genomics.com/Epigenomics.htmlReport abuse »
