The  telomeric Cdc13-Stn1-Ten1 complex regulates RNA pol II transcription

ABSTRACT: Specialized telomeric proteins have an essential role in maintaining genome stability through chromosome end protection and telomere length regulation. In the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the evolutionary conserved CST complex, composed of the Cdc13, Stn1 and Ten1 proteins, largely contributes to these functions. Here, we report the existence of genetic interactions between TEN1 and several genes coding for transcription regulators. Molecular assays confirmed this novel function of Ten1 and further established that it regulates the occupancies of RNA polymerase II and the Spt5 elongation factor within transcribed genes. Since Ten1, but also Cdc13 and Stn1, were found to physically associate with Spt5, we propose that Spt5 represents the target of CST in transcription regulation. Moreover, CST physically associated with Hmo1, previously shown to mediate the architecture of S phase-transcribed genes. The fact that, genome-wide, the promoters of genes down-regulated in the ten1-31 mutant are prefentially bound by Hmo1, leads us to propose a potential role for CST in synchronizing transcription with replication fork progression following head-on collisions. The present finding of the existence of extra-telomeric functions for Ten1 in the regulation of RNA polymerase II in cooperation with Stn1 and Cdc13 has profound repercussions on future studies both on telomeric and transcription pathways. Overall design: 6 RNA-seq samples: 2 conditions with 3 replicates each; 12 ChIP-seq samples: 4 IPs and 2 Inputs, with 2 repliactes each.
