The histone lysine methyltransferase (MT) Enhancer of Zeste Homolog 2 (EZH2) is considered an oncogenic driver in a subset of germinal center B-cell-like diffuse large B cell lymphoma (GCB-DLBCL) and follicular lymphoma due to the presence of recurrent, monoallelic mutations in the EZH2 catalytic domain. These genomic data suggest that targeting the EZH2 MT(More)
Covalent modification of histones is a fundamental mechanism of regulated gene expression in eukaryotes, and interpretation of histone modifications is an essential feature of epigenetic control. Bromodomains are specialized binding modules that interact with acetylated histones, linking chromatin recognition to gene transcription. Because of their ability(More)
Lysine-specific demethylase 1 (KDM1A) is a transcriptional coregulator that can function in both the activation and repression of gene expression, depending upon context. KDM1A plays an important role in hematopoiesis and was identified as a dependency factor in leukemia stem cell populations. Therefore, we investigated the consequences of inhibiting KDM1A(More)
Pharmacological inhibition of chromatin co-regulatory factors represents a clinically validated strategy to modulate oncogenic signaling through selective attenuation of gene expression. Here, we demonstrate that CBP/EP300 bromodomain inhibition preferentially abrogates the viability of multiple myeloma cell lines. Selective targeting of multiple myeloma(More)
PURPOSE The initiation, progression, and maintenance of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) results from the interplay of genetic and epigenetic events. While the genetic alterations of PDAC have been well characterized, epigenetic pathways regulating PDAC remain, for the most part, elusive. The goal of this study was to identify novel epigenetic(More)
Chromatin immunoprecipitation and DNA sequencing (ChIP-seq) has been instrumental in inferring the roles of histone post-translational modifications in the regulation of transcription, chromatin compaction and other cellular processes that require modulation of chromatin structure. However, analysis of ChIP-seq data is challenging when the manipulation of a(More)
Small-molecule inhibitors of the bromodomain and extraterminal (BET) family of proteins are being tested in clinical trials for a variety of cancers, but patient selection strategies remain limited. This challenge is partly attributed to the heterogeneous responses elicited by BET inhibition (BETi), including cellular differentiation, senescence, and death.(More)
