Embryo-specific epigenetic mechanisms reconstitute the CHH methylation landscape during Arabidopsis embryogenesis

Hsieh, P.-H., Frost, J. M., Choi, Y., Hsieh, T.-F., Zilberman, D., & Fischer, R. L. (2023, April 8).

TL;DR: It is revealed that embryos are more methylated than leaves at shared CMT2 and RdDM targeting loci, accounting for most embryonic CHH hypermethylation, and similar overlap with vegetative cell DEMETER targets indicates that the chromatin landscape that allows DEMetER access is mirrored in developing embryos, permitting CHH methylation catalysis at the same loci.
