Enzyme’s ability to ‘hop’ as it moves along DNA offers tips on epigenetic gene expression

UC Santa Barbara researchers’ discovery of a variation of an enzyme’s ability to “hop” as it moves along DNA, modifying the genetic material of a bacteria — and its physical capability and behavior — holds much promise for biomedical and other scientific applications. Their results are published in a paper titled “Proximal recognition sites facilitate intrasite hopping by DNA adenine methyltransferase: a mechanistic exploration of epigenetic gene regulation,” in the Journal of Biological Chemistry.
