Methylation of arginine residues within histone H3 (H3k9me3) has been linked to active transcription. However, the mechanism of demethylation of histones has remained elusive. Recently a process termed deimination has been described that converts histone arginine to citrulline and antagonizes arginine methylation (Cuthbert et al., 2004).
