Chromatin reader protein BRD4 is thought to bookmark mitotic chromatin to propagate transcriptional states across mitosis. Behera et al. profiled and perturbed mitotic BRD4 chromatin occupancy to show that BRD4 is dispensable for this process. Instead, BRD4 mitotic chromatin association is likely a mere reflection of mitotically stable histone marks.
