role of chromatin in gene silencing

Chromatin changes at the HBA genes in response to HDAC ... Genome-wide analyses in human and mouse ES cells have revealed an important role for the PcG machinery in silencing genes, which must be repressed to maintain self-renewal and pluripotency and become activated during differentiation. Observations in higher eukaryotes also suggest a role for nuclear periphery in gene silencing. Cell Biol. The experiments in this proposal will use a combination of genetic, molecular, and biochemical approaches to address how histones and silencing factors affect gene silencing and chromatin structure in the rDNA. However, the transcriptional silencing mechanism with regard to the chromatin structure at an unstimulated state of the interferon (IFN)-stimulated gene (ISG) remains unclear. PR-B gene expression is regulated by a concerted action of epigenetic factors including DNA methylation, MBD binding, and histone modifications. This protein functions through both catalytic-dependent and -independent mechanisms to repress regulatory elements and retrotransposons. Natl. Plant Physiol. Embo J. Mol. Histone H2AK119 ubiquitination (H2Aub) is a prevalent modification and has been primarily linked to gene silencing. Tax calculation will be finalised during checkout.

The long-term objective of this project is to learn more about how chromatin structure regulates transcriptional gene silencing in eukaryotes. Acad. 13:7195–7206; 1985. Given that the histone deacetylation is the primary chromatin change observed upon Xist induction and that its kinetics are tightly linked to transcriptional silencing, we decided to investigate whether the loss of histone acetylation might play a functional role in mediating the initiation of gene silencing during XCI. Our studies investigating the mechanisms that cells use to control gene silencing will provide insight into how changes in regulatory pathways can lead to malignancy and will contribute to the identification of targets for future therapeutics. Polycomb-group proteins play critical roles in gene silencing through the deposition of histone H3 lysine 27 trimethylation (H3K27me3) and chromatin compaction.
