Abstract:We recap epigenetic features of distinct enhancers and describe the role of Jumonji domain-containing protein 3 (Jmjd3) and Hdac3 as crucial mediators of macrophage differentiation, activation and polarization. We hypothesize that epigenetic enzymes could serve as the link between environment, cellular metabolism and macrophage phenotype. To conclude, we propose epigenetic intervention as a future pharmacological target to modulate macrophage polarization and to treat inflammatory diseases such as atherosclero…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
