Guiding DNA methylation.

AbstractHow DNA methyltransferases, with their limited target specificity, establish cell-type-specific epigenetic patterns is poorly understood. Schübeler and colleagues (Lienert et al., 2011) now show that methylation-determining regions (MDRs) within promoter regions are sufficient to recapitulate endogenous patterns and dynamics of DNA methylation.
