Abstract (English)

DNA methylation and histone modifications are epigenetic mechanisms that affect the chromatin structure and thus the readout of the underlying DNA sequence. Hence, variations in the DNA methylation profiles of individuals may contribute to phenotypic differences and disease susceptibility. However, the extent of such epigenetic variations is unclear. With regard to DNA methylation, little is ...


Translation of the abstract (German)

Epigenetische Mechanismen, wie DNA-Methylierung und die post-translationale Modifikation von Histonen, beeinflussen die Chromatinstruktur und damit die Zugänglichkeit und Expression der assoziierten DNA-Sequenz. Individuelle Variationen im DNA-Methylierungsprofil haben damit das Potenzial zu unterschiedlichen Phänotypen und der Anfälligkeit für bestimmte Krankheiten beizutragen. Dennoch ist ...
