Dr. Strahl's lab is exploring the role of histone-modifying enzymes in RNA polymerase II (RNAPII) transcription. His team has supported the finding that a variety of enzymes that either methylate, acetylate or ubiquitylate histones, contribute to transcription elongation and are associated with the elongating form of RNAPII. Current efforts are aimed at understanding how these enzymes (and their modifications) contribute to chromatin organization, gene regulation and how their dysregulation leads to cancer.
