Methyltransferases vs Acetyltransferases?

Post by Plutocracy » Thu Aug 20, 2015 5:42 pm

Hi all, I'm wondering why there are more scientific papers published on methylation than on acetylation. On PubMed, there are 50k results when I type in "DNA methylation", but only 12k results when I type in "histone acetylation". Is there any clear reason why? Methylation being easier to assay, having more clinical importance, or being discovered earlier? Please let me know.
