ChIP-chip of siGFP- or siHOTAIR-treated foreskin fibroblasts with anti-LSD1 or anti-SUZ12 antibodies on human HG18 Nimblegen promoter arrays

ABSTRACT: Long intergenic noncoding RNAs (lincRNAs) regulate chromatin states and epigenetic inheritance. Here we show that the lincRNA HOTAIR serves as a scaffold for at least two distinct histone modification complexes. A 5’ domain of HOTAIR binds Polycomb Repressive Complex 2 (PRC2) while a 3’ domain of HOTAIR binds the LSD1/CoREST/REST complex. The ability to tether two distinct complexes enables RNA-mediated assembly of PRC2 and LSD1, and coordinates targeting of PRC2 and LSD1 to chromatin for coupled histone H3 lysine 27 methylation and lysine 4 demethylation. Our results suggest that lincRNAs may serve as scaffolds by providing binding surfaces to assemble select histone modification enzymes, and thereby specify the pattern of histone modifications on target genes. LSD1 and SUZ12 co-occupied on 721 genes in human foreskin fibroblasts. Coordinate loss of SUZ12 and LSD1 occupancy was caused by HOTAIR knockdown. Overall design: Comparison occupancy of LSD1 and SUZ12 of siGFP and siHOTAIR foreskin fibroblasts on human HG18 promoter arrays. Human foreskin fibroblasts were transfected with siGFP or siHOTAIR. The cells were harvested and ChIP analysis with anti-LSD1 and anti-SUZ12 antibodies was performed.
