Project context and summary :

The three HP1 proteins (Heterochromatin Protein 1 alpha, -beta, -gamma) are epigenetic markers of heterochromatin, the condensed, repressed form of chromatin. They are typically known to associate to the di-/tri-methylated lysine 9 of histone H3 (H3-K9me2/3), a repressive histone mark, HP1s are therefore linked to chromatin silencing. But on the other hand, HP1g has been shown to localize within the body of coding genes in correlation with their transcriptional activity. We have identified functional links between HP1g and chromatin-associated RNA on gene models, but we are now dissecting these links on a genome-wide basis.
