Chun Ruan, Bing Li

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Histone posttranslational modifications (PTM) constitute one of the most important signaling pathways in the eukaryotic nucleus. In this chapter, we will discuss the molecular mechanisms by which histone PTM are deciphered by chromatin regulators and the functional outcomes of reading this signaling system.
