    Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Southern California Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center, Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA 90033, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 99:3740-5. 2002
    ..This finding is compatible with the recent detection of 5-methylcytosine in Drosophila, and might suggest that S. cerevisiae has, or once had, CpG methylation...

    Gangning Liang
    Department of Urology, Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center, Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California, 1441 Eastlake Avenue, MS 8302L, Los Angeles, CA 90089 9181
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 101:7357-62. 2004
    ..Common models depicting widespread histone acetylation and K4 methylation throughout the transcribed unit do not therefore apply to the majority of human genes...

    Cancer Cell 12:432-44. 2007
    ..Activation of the promoter by demethylation with 5-aza-2'-deoxycytidine involves nucleosome eviction. Epigenetic silencing of tumor suppressor genes may involve heritable changes in nucleosome occupancy enabled by cytosine methylation...

    Cryobiology 52:251-60. 2006
    ..However, the biological ramifications of cryopreservation are still unclear; therefore, using animal experiments we assessed how 'cryopreservation' influences graft allogenicity and cell viability...

    Keiki Sugimoto
    Department of Respiratory Medicine, The University of Tokyo Hospital, Tokyo, Japan
    Biochem Biophys Res Commun 359:497-502. 2007
    ..The elevated level of histone methylation resulted in the downregulation of the p16(Ink4a) gene. These results suggest PIWIL4 plays important roles in the chromatin-modifying pathway in human somatic cells...
