DNA Methylation and Mammalian Development (Déborah Bourc'his)

Episode 48

May 12, 2021

In this episode of the Epigenetics Podcast, we caught up with Dr. Déborah Bourc'his from L'Institut Curie in Paris to talk about her work on the role of DNA methylation in mammalian development. We discuss how she has been involved in the characterization of two methyltransferase enzymes; DNMT3L, which is responsible for stimulating gDNA methylation activity in male and female germlines and DNMT3C, which has evolved as a defense against transposons in rodents.
