SuUR mutation affects H3K27me3 level independently from local under-replication. a Examples of chromosomal regions that display decrease in H3K27me3 levels upon SuUR mutation, but are fully polytenized in wild type. Compared to under-replicated regions 71C and 64C. Polytenization data were taken from [13]. Arrowheads show the positions of qPCR primers that were used to validate polytenization levels in these regions. Blue shading demarks SSRs identified with HMM. b SSRs identified with HMM display systematic decrease in H3K27me3 levels upon SuUR mutation. Compared to 1000 random chromosomal regions. c qPCR analysis of the polytenization levels in SSRs, shown in (a)
