WB001A: Genome-wide analysis reveals NRP1 as a critical HIF1-E2F7 target gene in the regulation of motor neuron guidance in vivo


ABSTRACT: In this study, we explored the existence of a transcriptional network co-regulated by E2F7 and HIF1α, as we show that expression of E2F7, like HIF1α, is induced in hypoxia, and because of the previously reported ability of E2F7 to interact with HIF1α. Our genome-wide analysis uncovers a transcriptional network that is directly controlled by HIF1α and E2F7, and demonstrates both stimulatory and repressive functions of the HIF1α -E2F7 complex. Among this network we reveal Neuropilin 1 (NRP1) as a HIF1α-E2F7 repressed gene. By performing in vitro and in vivo reporter assays we demonstrate that the HIF1α-E2F7 mediated NRP1 repression depends on a 41 base pairs 'E2F-binding site hub', providing a molecular mechanism for a previously unanticipated role for HIF1α in transcriptional repression. To explore the biological significance of this regulation we performed in situ hybridizations and observed enhanced nrp1a expression in spinal motorneurons (MN) of zebrafish embryos, upon morpholino-inhibition of e2f7/8 or hif1α. Consistent with the chemo-repellent role of nrp1a, morpholino-inhibition of e2f7/8 or hif1α caused MN truncations, which was rescued in TALEN-induced nrp1a(hu10012) mutants, and phenocopied in e2f7/8 mutant zebrafish. Therefore, we conclude that repression of NRP1 by the HIF1α-E2F7 complex regulates MN axon guidance in vivo. The following samples were analyzed by microarrays: RNA isolated from HeLa cells transfected with either control (scr), E2F7, HIF1a, E2F7 and E2F8, or E2F7 and HIF1a siRNAs. Cells were harvested 48h after transfection, and were grown the last 16h in hypoxia. RNA isolated from scr-transfected, normoxic HeLa cells was used as common reference RNA. Within each group of two biological replicates, sample versus common reference hybridisations were performed in balanced dye-swap. Microarrays used were human whole genome gene expression microarrays V1 (Agilent, Belgium).
