Eukaryotic genomes are packaged into chromatin, a highly organized structure consisting of DNA and histone proteins. All nuclear processes take place in the context of chromatin. Modifications of either DNA or histone proteins have fundamental effects on chromatin structure and function, and thus influence processes such as transcription, replication or recombination. In this review we highlight histone modifications specifically associated with gene transcription by RNA polymerase II and summarize their genomic distributions. Finally, we discuss how (mis-)regulation of these histone modifications perturbs chromatin organization over coding regions and results in the appearance of aberrant, intragenic transcription. This article is part of a Special Issue entitled: RNA polymerase II Transcript Elongation.
