We review this month the role(s) of bromodomains (BRDs), evolutionary conserved protein–protein interaction modules that are found in a wide range of proteins with diverse catalytic and scaffolding functions, present in most tissues. BRDs selectively recognize and bind to acetylated lysine residues, particularly acetylated histones and thereby play important roles in regulating gene expression.
