Histone methylation occurs with the addition of a methyl group to the amino-terminal tails of histone proteins. Depending on how many methyl groups are added and which amino acid residue is modified, histone methylation can have a positive or negative effect on gene transcription. Histone methyltransferases (HMTs) are enzymes that catalyze the addition of methyl groups to histone proteins, while histone demethylases (HDMs) remove these methyl groups. This process is important for regulating gene expression which allows different cells to express different genes.
