Call for Manuscript on Frontier Research Topic "The Direct Mechanisms of Epigenetic Gene Regulation"

See link for details

This Research Topic solicits novel "direct" relationship between Epigenetics factors and gene regulations. We welcome contributions in the form of Original Research Articles, Reviews, and Mini-Reviews that cover but are not limited to the following topics:

•Direct transcription targets of Epigenetics factors (include but not limited to : methyltransferase/ demethylase/ acetyltransferases/ deacetylases/ kinase/ phosphatases/ decrotonylase/ ubiquitinase/ sumoylase/ ribosylase/ biotinidase/ O-GlcNAcylase).
•Recruitment/Competent relationship between Transcription factor and Epigenetic factors.
•Post-Translational Modifications to Transcription factors by Epigenetic factors that could regulate their ability to form dimer or nuclear import and export .
•Methods measuring nascent RNA (such as SLAM-seq, TT-Seq, TimeLapse-Seq).
•Methods using acute perturbation of the genome (such as drug inhibitors, AID, PROTAC, vfCRISPR).
•Novel methods or approaches in the investigation of direct epigenetic regulation of gene expression.
