Desulfitobacterium hafniense Y51 is a dechlorinating bacterium that encodes an unusually large set of O-demethylase paralogs and specialized respiratory systems including specialized electron donors and acceptors. To use this organism in bioremediation of tetrachloroethene (PCE) or trichloroethene (TCE) pollution, expression patterns of its 5,060 genes were(More)
INTRODUCTION Mutations in H3F3A, which encodes histone H3.3, commonly occur in pediatric glioblastoma. Additionally, H3F3A K27M substitutions occur in gliomas that arise at midline locations (eg, pons, thalamus, spine); moreover, this substitution occurs mainly in tumors in children and adolescents. Here, we sought to determine the association between H3F3A(More)
Epigenetic regulation is essential in determining cellular phenotypes during differentiation. Although tissue-specific DNA methylation has been studied, the significance of methylation variance for tissue phenotypes remains unresolved, especially for CpG-poor promoters. Here, we comprehensively studied methylation levels of 27 578 CpG sites among 21 human(More)
Small cell lung cancer (SCLC) is a subtype of lung cancer with poor prognosis. Expression array analysis of 23 SCLC cases and 42 normal tissues revealed that EZH2 and other PRC2 members were highly expressed in SCLC. ChIP-seq for H3K27me3 suggested that genes with H3K27me3(+) in SCLC were extended not only to PRC2-target genes in ES cells but also to other(More)
Cellular senescence involves epigenetic alteration, e.g. loss of H3K27me3 in Ink4a-Arf locus. Using mouse embryonic fibroblast (MEF), we here analyzed transcription and epigenetic alteration during Ras-induced senescence on genome-wide scale by chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP)-sequencing and microarray. Bmp2 was the most activated secreted factor with(More)
We identified 5 975 567 mono- and 6 995 122 di-nucleosome positions of the fungus Aspergillus fumigatus, which was detected at high resolution based on the DNA sequence data obtained from both mono- and di-nucleosomal DNA fragments. We show that the distribution of lengths of the mono-nucleosomal DNA fragments has two peaks at 135 and 150 nt, whereas the(More)
It is suggested that histone modifications and/or histone variants influence the nucleosomal DNA length. We sequenced both ends of mononucleosomal and dinucleosomal DNA fragments of the filamentous fungus Aspergillus fumigatus, after treatment with the histone deacetylase inhibitor trichostatin A (TSA). After mapping the DNA fragments to the genome, we(More)
We previously reported on the impacts of the overexpression of individual genes of the glycolytic pathway encoding glucokinase (GLK), glyceraldehyde phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH), phosphofructokinase (PFK), triosephosphate isomerase (TPI), and bisphosphate aldolase (FBA) on D-lactate productivity in Corynebacterium glutamicum under oxygen-deprived(More)
Synergistic transcriptional activation by different stimuli has been reported along with a diverse array of mechanisms, but the full scope of these mechanisms has yet to be elucidated. We present a detailed investigation of hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF) 1 dependent gene expression in endothelial cells which suggests the importance of crosstalk between the(More)
Ovarian clear cell carcinoma (CCC) is generally associated with chemoresistance and poor clinical outcome, even with early diagnosis; whereas high-grade serous carcinomas (SCs) and endometrioid carcinomas (ECs) are commonly chemosensitive at advanced stages. Although an integrated genomic analysis of SC has been performed, conclusive views on copy number(More)
