Current Issue Highlights

Epigenetic regulation is mediated by changes to a gene, such as DNA methylation and histone modification, that do not change the genetic sequence, but nevertheless alter the expression or function of the gene. A common family of molecules involved in epigenetic gene alteration are the bromo and extra-terminal (BET) proteins. Notable among these are the bromodomain (BRD) proteins, which influence numerous pathways known to be involved in alloimmunity. This month, Suarez-Alvarez et al present a minireview on BET proteins, highlighting their role in immunity and potential as targets for antirejection therapies. Also, two papers (Mathews et al and Cortes-Cerisuelo et al) provide new information relevant to the etiology of belatacept-resistant rejection.
