11-24-21. Congratulations to Sathyan on his co-author publication in The EMBO Journal, UBR7 acts as a histone chaperone for post-nucleosomal histone H3 . In the paper they identified UBR7 as a histone chaperone specifically for pre-existing histone H3. The result suggests that UBR7 may be acting as a chaperone that maintains epigenetic memory during transcription and replication.
09-09-2021 Les Loew is co-author on a paper with collaborators from the Pollard lab at Yale, just published online in Biophysical Journal (PMID 34509503). The work was started by Les some time ago to computationally explore molecular details of actin assembly and was recently revived by a graduate student in the Pollard lab. Congrats to Les!
