Lysine methylation is a prevalent post-translational modification (PTM) used by the cell to reversibly regulate protein function. Although it has been extensively studied in the context of histones and the associated chromatin, the remaining methyllysine proteome remains largely unexplored. This SnapShot provides an overview of the current state of lysine methylation research and its emergence as a dynamic PTM occurring on histone and non-histone proteins.
