Tubulin and histone acetylation in brain development and genetic disease

Scientific Conference of the Unité collaborative en épigénétique moléculaire (UCEM)


  • Xiang-Jiao Yang, PhD
    • Professor - Department of Medicine, Division of Experimental Medicine, McGill University

Protein acetylation at lysine residues is important for regulating functions of various proteins. In this talk, I will first give an update on how tubulin acetylation regulates mouse brain development. Then the focus of the talk will be shifted to unpublished data on the role of a histone acetyltransferase in mouse brain development and about the identification of its gene mutations in patients inflicted with a novel genetic disease showing intellectual disability and many other problems.
