abstract

  • Gene families in malaria parasites that encode hypervariable surface antigens display mutually exclusive expression that is controlled epigenetically. In this issue, Lopez-Rubio et al. (2009) show that the histone mark H3K9me3 is specifically associated with regulation of expression of these gene families within repressive centers located at the nuclear periphery.
