The three-dimensional organization of chromosomes within the nucleus and its dynamics during differentiation are largely unknown. To visualize this process in molecular detail, we generated high-resolution maps of genome-nuclear lamina interactions during subsequent differentiation of mouse embryonic stem cells via lineage-committed neural precursor cells(More)
In metazoans, the nuclear lamina is thought to play an important role in the spatial organization of interphase chromosomes, by providing anchoring sites for large genomic segments named lamina-associated domains (LADs). Some of these LADs are cell-type specific, while many others appear constitutively associated with the lamina. Constitutive LADs (cLADs)(More)
The nuclear lamina is a major structural component of metazoan nuclei that has long been thought to provide an anchoring site for interphase chromosomes and have a role in gene regulation. Recent genome-wide mapping studies and functional experimental data strongly support these roles of the nuclear lamina. Here, we discuss new insights into various aspects(More)
