Abstract

We recently identified that methylation of lysine 4 of histone H3 (H3K4) by SETD1A (SET domain containing 1A) maintains genome stability by protecting newly-replicated DNA from degradation. Mechanistically, SETD1A-dependent histone methylation regulates nucleosome mobilisation by FANCD2 (FA complementation group D2), a crucial step in maintaining genome stability with important implications in chemosensitivity.
