2005). , 2005). , 2004). ISWI complexes also ‘sense’ histone modification. , 2002). , 2000). Ordinarily, the transcription of genes on the male X-chromosome is increased two-fold relative to females due to dosage compensation, a process involving the acetylation of histone H4 at Lysine 16 (H4K16), next to the basic patch that is so critical for ISWI function. , 2002). Therefore, it appears that H4K16 acetylation reduces the ability of ISWI to interact productively with its substrate and directly counteracts chromatin compaction mediated by the ISWI ATPase.

They do this by regulating responses to peptide factor signalling in the stem cell microenvironment (‘niche’). In Drosophila, ISWI was found to control Germline Stem Cell self-renewal and DOM was shown to be essential for Somatic Stem Cell self renewal. These findings suggest that different stem cell types depend on different chromatin remodelling factors to control their self-renewal, at least in part by regulating their gene expression response to the niche signals. Because these chromatin remodelling complexes are highly conserved, it is possible they may play a role in stem cell self-renewal in other organisms, including humans.
