Epigenetic control of the immune system: histone demethylation as a target for drug discovery

Download Type: Adobe PDF

In recent years significant progress has been made in ourunderstanding of epigenetic control of a wide range of cellular processes. This has come about both through the concerted effort of the research community and through the development of technologies essential to the area. The importance of the epigenetic control of the immune system is becoming increasingly clear, and therefore epigenetics presents itself as an attractive, and potentially ground-breaking, entry point to tackle immune-mediated conditions. The advances in our understanding are in part due to the development of next generation sequencing technologies and chromatin immunoprecipitation. When combined, these approaches have allowed studies at the chromatin level
