Epigenetics: mechanism of environmental influence on gene expression
Expression pattern of the H3K27-specific methyltransferase, EZH2, in the PO/AH of 3-day-old chicks
Colocalization of EZH2 and H3K27me2 in PO/AH cells by double immunohistochemical staining. Representative pictures of the same field of the PO/AH of 12-h heat-treated chicks. The brain section was photographed at 200X magnification under different filters, enabling the visualization of fluorescent signals from FITC (upper left panel), Cy3 (upper right panel) and DAPI (lower right panel). The merging of H3K27me2 and EZH2 pictures (lower left panel)
