The proliferation and differentiation of muscle precursor cells require myogenic regulatory factors and chromatin modifiers whose concerted action dynamically regulates access to DNA and allows reprogramming of cells towards terminal differentiation. Type 2 deiodinase (D2), the thyroid hormone (TH)-activating enzyme, is sharply upregulated during myoblast(More)
DNA methylation is an important epigenetic mechanism of transcriptional control that plays an essential role in several cellular functions. Aberrant DNA methylation in cancer has been frequently associated with downregulation of microRNAs and protein coding genes, such as miR-200c/miR-141 cluster and E-cadherin. Current strategies to assess DNA methylation,(More)
Precise control of the thyroid hormone (T3)-dependent transcriptional program is required by multiple cell systems, including muscle stem cells. Deciphering how this is achieved and how the T3 signal is controlled in stem cell niches is essentially unknown. We report that in response to proliferative stimuli such as acute skeletal muscle injury, type 3(More)
