Easy Stress Relief by EZH2

Research output: Contribution to journalShort survey

Abstract

While we are beginning to appreciate the cellular roles played by long noncoding RNAs, the function of transcripts emerging from repetitive genomic regions remains enigmatic. In this issue, Zovoilis et al. report that the polycomb protein EZH2, upon heat shock, facilitates transcription of stress-responsive genes by inducing the degradation of the transcriptional repressor B2 repeat RNA.
