Assessing the impact of loss of MORC2 and SETDB1 on the global distribution of H3K9me3

ABSTRACT: By comparing HeLa cells lacking MORC2 or SETDB1 generated through CRISPR/Cas9-mediated gene disruption to wild-type HeLa cells, the goal of the experiment was to determine the effect of loss of MORC2 on the distribution of the repressive H3K9me3 histone modification. Overall design: H3K9me3 ChIP-seq analysis of wild-type HeLa cells compared to MORC2 knockout and SETDB1 knockout HeLa cells.

Dominant mutations in the MORC2 gene have recently been shown to cause axonal Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) disease, but the cellular function of MORC2 is poorly understood. Here, through a genome-wide CRISPR-Cas9-mediated forward genetic screen, we identified MORC2 as an essential gene required for epigenetic silencing by the HUSH complex. HUSH recruits MORC2 to target sites in heterochromatin. We exploited a new method, differential viral accessibility (DIVA), to show that loss of MORC2 results in  ...[more]
