Abstract

In this issue of Molecular Cell, Laurent etal. (2015) demonstrated that a neuron-enriched isoform of LSD1 (LSD1+8a) within a SVIL-containing complex exhibits H3K9me1/2-specific demethylation activity. Such activity was crucial for gene activation during mammalian neurogenesis. In this issue of Molecular Cell, Laurent etal.
