  1. Enzymes of epigenetic regulation

    Epigenetic control of genes can alter phenotype without altering genotype and the underlying DNA sequence. Epigenetic modifications such as acetylation, methylation, phosphorylation, and ubiquitination, alter the accessibility of DNA to transcription machinery and therefore influence gene expression. Specific epigenetic processes include imprinting, gene silencing, X chromosome inactivation and maternal effects. Epigenetic processes are responsible for many effects of teratogens, and are often associated with the development of cancer.
