Project description:ChIP-seq of H3K27me3 in rat peripheral nerve was used to identify sites of polycomb repression associated with genes in Schwann cells, which constitute the majority of cells in peripheral nerve. H3K27me3 ChIP samples were prepared from rat sciatic nerve and then sequenced. Inputs for these ChIP samples have previously been submitted as samples GSM1541282 and GSM1541283 in Series GSE63103
Project description:ChIP-seq of H3K4me3 in rat peripheral nerve was used to identify transcription start sites associated with Schwann cell-expressed genes. The analysis was performed in injured and control nerve to identify injury-responsive changes in Schwann cells. H3K4me3 ChIP samples were prepared from rat sciatic nerve at 1 day post-transection using both the distal stump of the injured nerve and the contralateral (sham) nerve.
Project description:The NuRD complex is required for efficient and timely myelination in the peripheral nervous system. ChIP-chip assays were performed on rat sciatic nerve at P15, a peak timepoint of myelination, for binding of Chd4 to genes involved in regulating myelin formation. This experiment includes two custom ChIP-chip design incorporating many genes that are dynamically regulated during myelination. The antibodies used in this platform were Chd3/4 (Santa Cruz sc-11378) Chd4 (gift from Paul Wade), Mta2 (Santa Cruz sc-9447), and Nab2 (Santa Cruz sc-22815). Chd4 ChIP samples from experimental and input samples were hybridized.
Project description:Egr2/Krox20 and Sox10 regulate genes involved in formation of myelination in the peripheral nervous system. ChIP-chip assays were performed on rat sciatic nerve at P15, a peak timepoint of myelination. In addition, Faire was used to identify areas of open chromatin. This experiment includes a custom ChIP-chip design incorporating many genes that are dynamically regulated during peripheral nerve myelination. Two antibodies were used for Egr2, Abcam and Covance PRB-236P. Egr2 and Sox10 ChIP samples were hybridized along with total input. In addition, FAIRE samples were hybridized relative to input DNA
Project description:Here we developed CapStarr-Seq, a novel high-throughput strategy to quantitatively assess enhancer activity in mammals. This approach couples capture of regions of interest to previously developed Starr-seq technique. Extensive assessment of CapStarr-seq demonstrated accurate quantification of enhancer activity. Furthermore, we found that enhancer strength correlates with binding complexity of tissue-specific transcription factors and super-enhancers, while additive enhancer activity isolates key genes involved in cell identity and function. ChIP-seq for the transcription factors HEB and TCF1, the DNaseI and the epigenetic modification H3K9me3 in DP thymocytes.
Project description:We report ChIP-seq for C/EBPb and ATF4 in human mesenchymal stem cells and in a cell-free system using naked genomic DNA. ChIP-Seq for GR, RNA Polymerase II, and H3K27 acetylation in hMSCs cultured under different adipogenic conditions are also presented. hMSCs cultured at high or low cell seeding densities in the presence or absence of adipogenic induction cocktail
Project description:Tightly controlled gene expression orchestrated by the transcription factor p63 during epithelial differentiation is important for development of epithelial-related structures such as epidermis, limb and craniofacial regions. How p63 regulates spatial and temporal expression of its target genes during these developmental processes is however not yet clear. By epigenomics profiling in stem cells established from one of these epithelial structures, the epidermis, we provide a global map of p63-bound regulatory elements that are categorized as single enhancers and clustered enhancers during epidermal differentiation. Transcriptomics analysis shows dynamic gene expression patterns during epidermal differentiation that correlates with the activity of p63-bound enhancers rather than with p63 binding itself. Only a subset of p63-bound enhancers is active in epidermal stem cells, and inactive p63-bound enhancers appear to function in gene regulation during the development of other epithelial tissues. Our data suggest a paradigm that p63 bookmarks genomic loci during the commitment of the epithelial lineage and regulates gene expression in different epithelial tissues through tissue-specific active enhancers. The catalogue of differentially expressed epidermal genes including non-coding RNAs and epithelial enhancers reported here provides a rich resource for studies of epithelial development and related diseases.
