ChIP-exo analysis of the DNA-binding sites of the yeast transcription factor Yfl052w sequenced by Illumina
ABSTRACT: We determined DNA-binding sites of the yeast transcription factor Yfl052w by ChIP-exo. Cells were grown in the YP media containing palatinose. Yfl052w was tagged with HA tag and anti-HA antibody was used for the immunoprecipitation. Examination of Yfl052 trancription factor in HA-tagged and wt cells (as a control)
The emergence of new genes throughout evolution requires rewiring and extension of regulatory networks. However, the molecular details of how the transcriptional regulation of new gene copies evolves remain largely unexplored. Here we show how duplication of a transcription factor gene allowed the emergence of two independent regulatory circuits. Interestingly, the ancestral transcription factor was promiscuous and could bind different motifs in its target promoters. After duplication, one paral ...[more]

Project description:Mapping ultra-high resolution of Sp1:DNA interaction would provide us with valuable new mechanistic insights into Sp1-mediated gene regulatory network in Huntington Disease cell culture model. STHdh Q7/Q7 cells were directly fixed and used for the ChIP-exo experiment.
Project description:These ChIP-exo data were used to validate the predictions from our live-cell single-molecule imaging experiment The ChIP-exo mapping of ultra-fine localization of endogenous Sox2, halo-Sox2, and two halo-Sox2 mutants (halo-Sox2M and halo-Sox2D) in embryonic stem cells.
Project description:Mapping ultra high resolution of Brachyury:DNA interaction would provide us with valuable new mechanistic insights into complex molecular transactions at Brachyury-bound enhancers. Embryonic stem cells were differentiated into Brachyury-positive mesoendoderm cells. And, ChIP-exo experiment was then performed to identify detailed Brachyury-DNA binding profiles.
Project description:This study involves the role of yeast mRNA decay factors in transcription. The experiment included here are the ChIP-exo results of three decay factors: Xrn1, Dcp2 & Lsm1. Four experiments were made: Xrn1, Dcp2, Lsm1 and control (no-TAP tag), in two replicates.
Project description:Meiotic chromosomes are highly compacted yet remain transcriptionally active. To understand how chromosome folding accommodates transcription, we investigated the assembly of the axial element, the proteinaceous structure that compacts meiotic chromosomes and promotes recombination and fertility. We found that the axial element proteins of budding yeast are flexibly anchored to chromatin by the ring-like cohesin complex and biased towards small chromosomes by a separate modulating mechanism that requires the conserved axial-element component Hop1. The ubiquitous presence of cohesin at sites of convergent transcription provides well-dispersed points for axis attachment and thus compaction. Axis protein enrichment at these sites directly correlates with the propensity for recombination initiation. Importantly, axis anchoring by cohesin is adjustable and readily displaced in the direction of transcription by the transcriptional machinery. We propose that such robust but flexible tethering allows the axial element to promote recombination while easily adapting to changes in chromosome activity. 7 genome wide meiotic ChIP-seq sets: V5-Red1 DNA interaction (V5-Red1-ChIP), V5-Red1 DNA interaction in the absence of axis protein Hop1 (V5-Red1-ChIP, hop1delta), V5-Red1 DNA interaction in the absence of another two axis proteins Hop1 and Rec8 (V5-Red1-ChIP, hop1delta rec8delta), Rec8-HA DNA interaction (Rec8-HA-ChIP), Rec8-HA DNA interactionin the absence of Red1 (Rec8-HA-ChIP, red1delta), and 2 untagged control (V5-untagged-ChIP, HA-untagged-ChIP) (corresponding to the main Figure5)
Project description:Identfification of MEF2A target genes using ChIP-exo in skeletla muscle and primary cardiomyocytes. Identfification of MEF2A target genes using ChIP-exo and RNA-seq in skeletal muscle and primary cardiomyocytes. MEF2 plays a profound role in the regulation of transcription in cardiac and skeletal muscle lineages. To define the overlapping and unique MEF2A genomic targets, we utilized ChIP-exo analysis of cardiomyocytes and skeletal myoblasts. Of the 2783 and 1648 MEF2A binding peaks in skeletal myoblasts and cardiomyocytes, respectively, 294 common binding sites were identified. Genomic targets were compared to differentially expressed genes in RNA-seq analysis of MEF2A depleted myogenic cells. MEF2A target genes were identified in 48 hr DM C2C12 myoblasts cells and primary cardiomyocytes using ChIP-exo. Binding profiles on MEF2A in each cell type were compared. Cross sectional-analysis between ChIP-exo identified targets and RNA-seq analysis of MEF2A deplted myoblasts was also done.
