Parent Terms Term With Siblings Child Terms
constitutive heterochromatin assembly +   
facultative heterochromatin assembly +   
The assembly of facultative heterochromatin, heterochromatin that can be converted to euchromatin and allow transcription under specific contexts. These can be temporal (e.g., developmental states or specific cell-cycle stages), spatial (e.g., nuclear localization changes from the center to the periphery or vice versa due to exogenous factors/signals), or parental/heritable (e.g., monoallelic gene expression).
