Adenovirus Small e1a Alters Global Patterns of Histone Modification

A research team from the University of California recently showed that adenovirus small early region 1a (e1a) protein interaction with and result in a threefold reduction of total cellular histone H3 lysine 18 acetylation (H3K18). and seem to be essential for the reaction at this position because a specific hypoacetylation occurs at H3K18 upon knockdown of their genes. was also observed to trigger H3K18 hypoacetylation.

The binding of proteins and the histone acetyl transferases and by e1a drives cells into the S phase of the . interaction removes e1a from its DNA-bound E2F transcription factors, resulting in the release of the genes. The role of and may be clarified by the observation that global hypoacetylation at H3K18 occurs in prostate carcinomas with poor prognosis. Thus, the processes responsible for global H3K18 hypoacetylation could play a role .
