Hippocampal memory formation requires neuroplasticity, which is produced by the orchestrated expression of neuronal genes through chromatin modification1,2. Histone acetylation is a post-translational modification of histone proteins that helps to restructure chromatin and regulate the ability to store and recall previously acquired information3. Histone acetyltransferases (HATs) transfer acetyl groups (-COCH3) to the lysine residues of histone tails, thus neutralizing the positive charges and decreasing their affinity for negatively charged DNA that is wound around the nucleosome. This process allows the condensed chromatin structure to relax and local g...

The Cell and Molecular Biology (CAMB) program spans a daunting breadth of biological inquiry, with students and investigators participating across six dynamic and complementary programs. This diversity is exemplified by the research of Ellen Elliott, recent alumna of the Developmental, Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology (DSRB) program and the Kaestner laboratory. Her work integrates the methods and concepts of regenerative biology, organismal development, physiology, and epigenetic regulation to investigate the role of DNA methylation in mammalian intestinal epithelia. In the January 2016 issue of eLife, Ellen and colleagues present that the DNA methyltra...
