Combinatorial transcription factor (TF) interactions control cellular phenotypes and, therefore, underpin stem cell formation, maintenance, and differentiation. Here, we report the genome-wide binding patterns and combinatorial interactions for ten key regulators of blood stem/progenitor cells (SCL/TAL1, LYL1, LMO2, GATA2, RUNX1, MEIS1, PU.1, ERG, FLI-1,(More)
Activation of Janus kinase 2 (JAK2) by chromosomal translocations or point mutations is a frequent event in haematological malignancies. JAK2 is a non-receptor tyrosine kinase that regulates several cellular processes by inducing cytoplasmic signalling cascades. Here we show that human JAK2 is present in the nucleus of haematopoietic cells and directly(More)
The basic helix-loop-helix transcription factor Scl/Tal1 controls the development and subsequent differentiation of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs). However, because few Scl target genes have been validated to date, the underlying mechanisms have remained largely unknown. In this study, we have used ChIP-Seq technology (coupling chromatin(More)
We have developed a method for rapidly inactivating proteins with rapamycin-induced heterodimerization. Cells were stably transfected with siRNA-resistant, FKBP-tagged subunits of the adaptor protein (AP) complexes of clathrin-coated vesicles (CCVs), together with an FKBP and rapamycin-binding domain-containing construct with a mitochondrial targeting(More)
Acute leukaemias are commonly caused by mutations that corrupt the transcriptional circuitry of haematopoietic stem/progenitor cells. However, the mechanisms underlying large-scale transcriptional reprogramming remain largely unknown. Here we investigated transcriptional reprogramming at genome-scale in mouse retroviral transplant models of acute myeloid(More)
Haematopoiesis (or blood formation) in general and haematopoietic stem cells more specifically represent some of the best studied mammalian developmental systems. Sophisticated purification protocols coupled with powerful biological assays permit functional analysis of highly purified cell populations both in vitro and in vivo. However, despite several(More)
