Ribosomes are large complexes comprising RNA and proteins, which are primarily dedicated to protein synthesis. Interestingly, mammalian ribosomes also associate with various accessory proteins, forming the ribosome–protein interactome. However, the ...

ACSS2 boosts local histone acetylation - Nature.com


Nature.com
Acetyl coenzyme A (acetyl-CoA) is the acetyl donor for Lys acetylation reactions in mammalian cells. Histone Lys acetylation promotes transcription and is regulated by the metabolic state of the cell, but it is unclear how it is maintained during ...
