Histone Methyl Transferases

Share this article with:

DNA in the nuclear environment is tightly packed in structures known as nucleosomes, which consist of DNA wound around histone protein cores. These complexes are important for the regulation of gene expression. Histone methyl transferases, or HMTs, modify histone proteins in order to increase or decrease the accessibility of certain genes. Some cancers may be caused by the overexpression or overactivity of HMTs, which results in the altered expression of genes responsible for cell growth and division.

The best things about working with XVIVO is probably the final product, that is never disappointing but, on the contrary, always beyond expectation. Our clients are happy and so are we. The second best thing is a very good production and revision process thru the web with a reliable schedule. It’s good not to be anxious because you know things will be done in due time (and well done).
