According to the "histone code" hypothesis these methylation marks can be read by proteins that bind them specifically and then regulate downstream events. Hetero-chromatin protein 1 (HP1), an essential component of heterochromatin, binds specifically to methylated Lys<sup>9</sup> of histone H3 (K9/H3). The linker histone H1.4 is methylated on Lys<sup>26</sup> (K26/H1.4), but the role of this methylation in downstream events remains unknown. Here we identify HP1 as a protein specifically recognizing and binding to methylated K26/H1.4. We demonstrate that the Chromo domain of HP1 is mediating this binding and that phosphorylation of Ser<sup>27</sup> on H1.4 (S27/H1.4) prevents HP1 from binding. We suggest that methylation of K26/H1.4 could have a role in tethering HP1 to chromatin and that this could also explain how HP1 is targeted to those regions of chromatin where it does not colocalize with methylated K9/H3. Our results provide the first experimental evidence for a "phospho switch" model in which neighboring phosphorylation reverts the effect of histone lysine methylation.
