Epigenetic editing refers to the locus-specific targeting of epigenetic enzymes to rewrite the local epigenetic landscape of an endogenous genomic site, often with the aim of transcriptional reprogramming. Implementing clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeat-dCas9 greatly accelerated the advancement of epigenetic editing, yielding preclinical therapeutic successes using a variety of epigenetic enzymes. ,CRISPR/dCas9 Here, were review the current applications of these epigenetic editing tools in mammalians and shed light on biochemical improvements that facilitate versatile applications.
