...Cecilia Lövkvist; Martin Howard The Polycomb system is essential for stable gene silencing in many organisms. This regulation is achieved in part through addition of the histone modifications H3K27me2/me3 by Polycomb Repressive Complex 2 (PRC2). These modifications are believed to be the causative...
