Example text

38 Abstract Epigenetic regulation of gene transcription relies on molecular marks like DNA methylation or histone modifications. Here we review recent advances in our understanding of epigenetic regulation in the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster. In the past, DNA methylation research has primarily utilized mammalian model systems. However, several recent landmark discoveries have been made in other organisms. For example, the interaction between DNA methylation and histone methylation was first described in the filamentous fungus Neurospora crassa.

Until recently, the ability of the protein to bind methylated DNA has only been analyzed in a very restricted experimental context. All in vitro assays were performed with probes that were methylated at CpGs, which does not reflect the endogenous pattern of DNA methylation in the fly. In addition, the binding of MBD2/3 to Drosophila DNA had not been investigated in vivo. Recent results demonstrate that MBD2/3 binds specifically to CpT/A-methylated probes in vitro and that the protein becomes mislocalized in embryos with reduced DNA methylation (Marhold et al.

2002; Saurin et al. 2001; Shao et al. 1999), although the Drosophila complex seems to contain additional accessory proteins (see below). Consistent with the hypothesis that PcG complexes repress genes by affecting chromatin structure, purified PRC1 inhibited chromatin remodeling of in vitro assembled nucleosomal arrays by the human SWI/SNF (hSWI/SNF) complex. The hSWI/SNF complex is the homolog of the Drosophila Brahma (BRM) complex, a large ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling machine that contains the TrxG proteins BRM, Moira (MOR), OSA, and SNR1 (Crosby et al.
