A bevy of recent reports have firmly established a mechanistic link between a histone posttranslational modification associated with DNA double-strand breaks and recruitment of chromatin-modifying activities. These papers show that in addition to providing signals for transcriptional regulation, specific histone "codes" can coordinate and target multiple activities involved in DNA repair.
