Histone modifying enzymes: The Erasers

Erasers are involved in the removal of histone marks and thereby altering the chromatin state and expression levels of genes. As per literature, 25 enzymes belong to the category of histone deacetylases (HDACs) and histone demethylates (HDMTs/KDMs).

Types of Erasers Arginine demethylase, Lysine deacetylase, Lysine demethylase, Lysine deribosylase, Lysine deubiquitinase, Serine/threonine/tyrosine phosphatase
