Finding a Balance: How Diverse Dosage Compensation Strategies Modify Histone H4 to Regulate Transcription
H4K16ac is reduced, and H4K20me1 is enriched, on the X chromosomes in WT hermaphrodite C. elegans. Shown are representative immunofluorescence projection images. (a) H4K16ac (green) is markedly reduced on the WT hermaphrodite X chromosomes (red, marked with anti-SDC-3 (DCC) antibodies). (b) H4K20me1 (green) is prominently enriched on the WT hermaphrodite X chromosomes (red, marked by anti-CAPG-1 (DCC) antibodies). DNA (DAPI) is shown in blue. Scale bars are 5 microns in length.
