In addition, we are interested in chromatin modifications, which affect genetic recombination as well as gene expression. In particular, we are studying the role of histone variant H2A.Z in plants. We recently found that H2A.Z may adopt both promoting and repressing roles in regulating gene expression, dependently on its location.
The role of H2A.Z in the regulation of gene activity in Arabidopsis. See Sura et al. Plant Cell 2017 for details.
Another extensive research in our group focuses on histone acetylation, especially by acetyltransferase complex NuA4. We recently identified key components of this complex in Arabidopsis and are currently studying its role both in gene expression and meiotic recombination. We hope you will be able to read more on this topic pretty soon ;-)
