Reporting in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, James Galligan, PhD, Lawrence Marnett, PhD, and colleagues demonstrate the existence of a previously undetected histone modification derived from glycolysis, the breaking down of glucose in the liquid part of the cell without oxygen to produce energy.
