We determined genome-wide nucleosome occupancies in mouse embryonic stem cells and their neural progenitor and embryonic fibroblast counterparts to assess features associated with nucleosome positioning during lineage commitment. Cell-type- and protein-specific binding preferences of transcription factors to sites with either low (Myc, Klf4 and Zfx) or high (Nanog, Oct4 and Sox2) nucleosome occupancy as well as complex patterns for CTCF were identified. Nucleosome-depleted regions around… 

Nucleosome positioning changes during human embryonic stem cell differentiation

The analysis indicates that the hESC genome is not rearranged and has a sequence mutation rate resembling normal human genomes, and sheds light on the relationship between nucleosome occupancy and sequence G+C content.

Nucleosomal occupancy changes locally over key regulatory regions during cell differentiation and reprogramming

It is concluded that changes in nucleosome occupancy are a hallmark of cell differentiation and reprogramming and likely identify regulatory regions essential for these processes.

HMGN1 Modulates Nucleosome Occupancy and DNase I Hypersensitivity at the CpG Island Promoters of Embryonic Stem Cells

It is shown that HMGN1, a nucleosome-binding protein ubiquitously expressed in vertebrate cells, preferentially binds to CpG island-containing promoters and affects the organization of nucleosomes, DNase I hypersensitivity, and the transcriptional profile of mouse embryonic stem cells and neural progenitors.

Nucleosome Organization in Human Embryonic Stem Cells

Ultra-deep sequencing of nucleosomal DNA in two human embryonic stem cell lines and integrated data with numerous epigenomic maps suggest that nucleosome organization is associated with numerous genomic and epigenomic processes and can be used to elucidate cellular identity.

DNA Sequence-Dependent Properties of Nucleosome Positioning in Regions of Distinct Chromatin States in Mouse Embryonic Stem Cells

By developing an improved deformation-energy-based model, some sequence-dependent properties of the nucleosome arrangements in regions of distinct chromatin states in mouse ESCs are revealed.

Nucleosome repositioning links DNA (de)methylation and differential CTCF binding during stem cell development

The linkages between DNA methylation, hydroxymethylation, nucleosome repositioning, and binding of the transcription factor CTCF during differentiation of embryonic stem cells are dissected and a quantitative biophysical model of competitive binding with the histone octamer is modeled.

Dynamically reorganized chromatin is the key for the reprogramming of somatic cells to pluripotent cells

The dynamics and critical roles of nucleosome positioning and chromatin organization in gene regulation during reprogramming are revealed and it is demonstrated that pre-iPSCs have a more open and phased chromatin architecture than that of MEFs and iPSCs.

Nucleosome repositioning during differentiation of a human myeloid leukemia cell line

Ch chromatin changes during HL-60/S4 differentiation appeared to be more localized to regulatory regions, compared with genome-wide changes among diverse cell types studied elsewhere.



Genome-wide maps of chromatin state in pluripotent and lineage-committed cells

The application of single-molecule-based sequencing technology for high-throughput profiling of histone modifications in mammalian cells is reported and it is shown that chromatin state can be read in an allele-specific manner by using single nucleotide polymorphisms.

Genome-Scale Identification of Nucleosome Positions in S. cerevisiae

A tiled microarray approach was developed to identify at high resolution the translational positions of 2278 nucleosomes over 482 kilobases of Saccharomyces cerevisiae DNA, including almost all of chromosome III and 223 additional regulatory regions, strongly suggesting that nucleosome positioning is a global determinant of transcription factor access.

A novel mechanism of epigenetic regulation: nucleosome-space occupancy.

Regulation of nucleosome landscape and transcription factor targeting at tissue-specific enhancers by BRG1.

It is shown that the catalytic subunit BRG1 of BAF complexes localizes to these distal sites during differentiation and generates a longer nucleosome linker region surrounding the GATA1 sites by shifting the flanking nucleosomes away.

CTCF-Mediated Functional Chromatin Interactome in Pluripotent Cells

Five distinct chromatin domains are uncovered that suggest potential new models of CTCF function in chromatin organization and transcriptional control, and demarcate chromatin-nuclear membrane attachments and influence proper gene expression through extensive cross-talk between promoters and regulatory elements.

Regulating RNA polymerase pausing and transcription elongation in embryonic stem cells.

Findings identify rate-limiting targets for transcription regulation during cell differentiation by mapping the density and orientation of transcriptionally engaged RNA polymerases in mouse embryonic stem cells and mouse embryonic fibroblasts.

Stable and dynamic nucleosome states during a meiotic developmental process.

These findings suggest that, during meiosis, the basic features of genomic chromatin organization are essentially a fixed property of chromosomes, but tweaked in a restricted and program-specific manner.

The Insulator Binding Protein CTCF Positions 20 Nucleosomes around Its Binding Sites across the Human Genome

An array of well-positioned nucleosomes flanking sites occupied by the insulator binding protein CTCF across the human genome is discovered, suggesting that binding of CTCf provides an anchor point for positioning nucleosome, and chromatin remodeling is an important component of C TCF function.
