  Title Roles of H3K27me2 and H3K27me3 Examined during Fate Specification of Embryonic Stem Cells Type Journal Article
  Year 2016 Publication Cell Reports Abbreviated Journal Cell Rep  
  Volume 17 Issue 5 Pages 1369-1382  
  Keywords H3K27 methylation; embryonic stem cells; polycomb proteins  
  Abstract The polycomb repressive complex 2 (PRC2) methylates lysine 27 of histone H3 (H3K27) through its catalytic subunit Ezh2. PRC2-mediated di- and tri-methylation (H3K27me2/H3K27me3) have been interchangeably associated with gene repression. However, it remains unclear whether these two degrees of H3K27 methylation have different functions. In this study, we have generated isogenic mouse embryonic stem cells (ESCs) with a modified H3K27me2/H3K27me3 ratio. Our findings document dynamic developmental control in the genomic distribution of H3K27me2 and H3K27me3 at regulatory regions in ESCs. They also reveal that modifying the ratio of H3K27me2 and H3K27me3 is sufficient for the acquisition and repression of defined cell lineage transcriptional programs and phenotypes and influences induction of the ESC ground state.
