Abstract: We conclude that DNA methylation does not control the methylation of histone H3-K9. We propose that loss of H3-K9 methylation is due to transcriptional reactivation, coupled with deposition of unmethylated nucleosomes. These findings are consistent with recent observations of DNA replication-independent deposition of histone H3.3 in Drosophila. Our results also suggest that, in Arabidopsis, DNA methylation is sufficient for gene silencing, but H3-K9 methylation is not.
