KRT27

A gene on chromosome 17q21.2 that encodes a type-I keratin, an intermediate filament protein that with actin microfilaments and microtubules composes the cytoskeleton of epithelial cells. KRT27 is specific for the inner root sheath of the hair follicle.

Por el contrario, la ausencia de acetilacion en las colas de las histonas H3, H4 y la metilacion de H3 en la lisina (K) en la posicion 9 o K27 y en H4K20, es indicativo de heterocromatina (55).

Interestingly, NANOG upregulates histone deacetylases 1 (HDAC1) via binding to the promoter region and decreasing K14 and K27 histone H3 acetylation; as a result, it induces not only the stem-like features through epigenetic repression of cell cycle inhibitor CDKN2D and CDKN1B but also the immune resistance and chemoresistance through MCL-1 upregulation by epigenetic silencing of E3 ubiquitin-ligase TRIM17 and NOXA [148].
The K9, K14, K18, K23, K27, and K36 regions of histone H3 are acetylated, and acetylation at K9 and K14 of histone H3 enhances transcription [67, 68].
(21) Subsequent work on a set of GBMs from all age groups and incorporating methylation data demonstrated similar clusters, designated as "IDH," "mesenchymal," "RTK-I (PDGFRA)," and "RTK-II (Classic)," in addition to 2 clusters, "K27" and "G34," enriched in pediatric and young adult patients and corresponding to tumors with mutations in histone genes such as H3F3A.
In yeast, acetylation of five lysine residues on H3 (K9, K14, K18, K23, and K27) facilitates chromatin assembly (Burgess et al.

By modifying the departure time at station A, the improved train paths (expressed with dashed lines) improved the performances; for example, K17 has a better stop equilibrium because of the shorter average stop distance and K27 has less total travel time because some unnecessary stops are avoided.

Furthermore, the acetylation of histone H3 sites K9, K14, and K27 and of histone H4 sites K5, K8, and K12 are correlated with active enhancers and promoters [66].
