ABSTRACT: Chromatin immunoprecipitation of FOXK2 (tagged with Flag and His tags) in U2OS cells detected by SOLiD sequencing. ***Correction March 2014: The sample “FOXK2_Dox_treated” has been renamed, it was originally named “FOXK2_rep2”. A new sample “FOXK2_rep2” has been added, with new files. It has come to our attention that one of the FOXK2 ChIP-seq replicates 'FOXK2_rep2' that we used in our paper recent paper (Ji, Z., Donaldson, I.J., Liu, J., Hayes, A., Zeef, L.A.H. and Sharrocks, A.D. (2012) The forkhead transcription factor FOXK2 promotes AP-1-mediated transcriptional regulation. Mol. Cell. Biol. 32, 385-398. doi:10.1128/MCB.05504-11) was incorrect. The replicate was actually treated with doxorubicin prior to ChIP-seq analysis resulting in the loss of many FOXK2 binding events.***
The transcriptional control circuitry in eukaryotic cells is complex and is orchestrated by combinatorially acting transcription factors. Forkhead transcription factors often function in concert with heterotypic transcription factors to specify distinct transcriptional programs. Here, we demonstrate that FOXK2 participates in combinatorial transcriptional control with the AP-1 transcription factor. FOXK2 binding regions are widespread throughout the genome and are often coassociated with AP-1 bi ...[more]
Project description:Expression profiling was done of exposure to phorbol myristate acetate -PMA and FOXK2 depletion by siRNA transfection. This was done on the human osteosarcoma U2OS cell line which stably expresses FOXK2. PMA is an inducer of AP1 activity.
Project description:Foxk proteins are transcriptional regulators implicated in key biological processes such as glycolysis, autophagy and cell cycle regulation, among others. Here we employ targeted morpholino knockdown to deplete Foxk1, Fokx2, and Foxk2-1 proteins in developing zebrafish embryos. We demonstrate that the loss of Foxk transcription factors causes genome-wide transcriptional misregulation, characterised by upregulation of autophagy-related genes and downregulation of cell cycle regulators. The phenotype is embryonic lethal with the majority of embryos not surviving past 24hpf.
