Chromatin is the arrangement of DNA and proteins in which chromosomes are formed. Correspondingly, chromatin is formed from nucleosomes, which are comprised of a set of four histone proteins (H2A, H2B, H3, H4) wrapped with DNA. Chromatin is a very dynamic structure in which numerous post-translational modifications work together to activate or repress the availability of DNA to be copied, transcribed, or repaired. These marks decide which DNA will be open and commonly active (euchromatin) or tightly wound to prevent access and activation (heterochromatin). Common histone modifications include methylation of lysine and arginine, acetylation of lysine, phosphorylation of threonine and serine, and sumoylation, biotinylation, and ubiquitylation of lysine. In particular, acetylation of H4 Lys16 (H4 K16Ac) plays a role in transcriptional activation and DNA repair. The protein MOF (MYST1) is the primary enzyme to acetylate K16, along with Gcn5, Esal, ATF2, and Sas2. Depletion of MOF reduces K16 acetylation, causing cell cycle arrests, chromosomal aberrations, and a poor DNA damage response.
