Solution Preview

I've researched and found papers that match your assignment. Furthermore, I have outlined the salient points that you will want to discuss.

Agarwal, S., and Rao, A. Modulation of chromatin structure regulates cytokine gene expression during T cell differentiation. Immunity 9(6):765-775, 1998.

Points to address:
- Agarwal and Rao demonstrate that when T cells differentiate into either Th1 or Th2 cells, the chromatin structure actually changes in order to control/regulate which proteins are produced by those cells
- chromatin structure change when T cells become Th1 cells causes production of IFNgamma
- chromatin structure change when T cells become Th2 cells causes production of IL-4 and IL-3
- this paper is an example of differential gene expression due to chromosome structure and alternative splicing
