GSE140237 Tet2 interacts with SCAN domain and regulates Zscan4-associated events during cell reprogramming (RNA-Seq)

Contributors : Dan Ye ; Zhouli ChengSeries Type : Expression profiling by high throughput sequencingOrganism : Mus musculusEvolutionarily conserved SCAN domain-containing zinc finger transcription factors (ZSCAN) have been found in both the mouse and human genomes. Of which, Zscan4 is crucial for zygotic genome activation (ZGA) in preimplantation embryos, and induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) reprogramming. However, little is known about the mechanism of Zscan4 underlying these processes of cell fate control. Here we show that Zscan4f, a representative of ZSCAN proteins, is able to recruit Tet2 through its SCAN domain. The Zscan4f-Tet2 interaction promotes DNA demethylation and regulates the expression of target genes, particularly those encoding glycolytic enzymes and proteasome subunits. Disruption of the Zscan4f-Tet2 interaction impairs cellular metabolism, proteasome function, and ultimately compromises iPSC generation. These results identify Tet2 as a major cooperator for the function of Zscan4f, and suggest a common mechanism shared by SCAN family transcription factors to recruit TET DNA dioxygenases to regulate diverse cellular processes.

Authors: Sidana S, Manasanch E Abstract You are evaluating a 47-year-old man with revised international staging system stage III myeloma who recently underwent an autologous stem cell transplant after receiving 6 cycles of carfilzomib, lenalidomide, and dexamethasone for newly diagnosed disease. Fluorescence in situ hybridization testing at initial presentation also revealed t(4;14). On day 100 evaluation after transplant, he has achieved a stringent complete response. Two-tube, 8-color advanced flow cytometry with a sensitivity of 10-5 shows no minimal residual disease. Whole-body positron emission tomography/comp...

Authors: Diomede F, Marconi GD, Serroni M, Pizzicannella G, Trubiani O, Pizzicannella J Abstract Ascorbic acid (AS), also known as vitamin C or ascorbate, is an essential dietary nutrient which plays a vital role in biological processes through various different mechanisms, in particular for the biosynthesis of collagen. The aim of the study was to establish the possibility of enhancing the osteogenic differentiation potential by manipulating the cellular micro-environment, through AS supplementation in human gingival mesenchymal stem cells (hGMSCs) at different concentrations, such as 60 and 90 μg/mL, for three...

AbstractThis observational study aimed to evaluate the prognostic significance of interim and final18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET/CT) responses to upfront autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) in patients with peripheral T cell lymphomas (PTCLs). A total of 118 patients, from two independent institutions, with newly diagnosed PTCLs were enrolled, and 96 of them were evaluated. PET/CT was assessed at diagnosis, and during and after the primary treatment. Clinical outcomes of interim and final PET/CT were compared between transplanted and non-transplanted patients. The resp...

In this study, the hUMSCs were isolated and cultured through acellular MPLA- or SLA-treated foreskin. Expression of some migration genes (i.e., VCAM-1, MMP-2, VLA-4, CXCR-4, and VEGF) was also investigated using quantitative real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR). Moreover; vimentin, cytokeratin 5 (CK5), and matrix metalloproteinases-2 (MMP-2) were detected via immunohistochemistry (IHC) analysis. The hUMSCs in the presence of MPLA- or SLA-treated foreskin showed more tissue tropism compared with those in the control group. Besides, the scanning electron microscopy (SEM) results established tha...

Abstract Metabolism has emerged as a key player for stem cell behavior; however, the role of metabolism in the microenvironment remains poorly understood. In this issue of Cell Stem Cell, Wang et al. (2019) show that brain endothelial cells directly affect adult neural stem cells and maintain a healthy metabolic environment by regulating lactate levels. PMID: 31809733 [PubMed - in process]

The shoot apical meristem (SAM) orchestrates the balance between stem cell proliferation and organ initiation essential for postembryonic shoot growth. Meristems show a striking diversity in shape and size. How this morphological diversity relates to variation in plant architecture and the molecular circuitries driving it are unclear. By generating a high-resolution gene expression atlas of the vegetative maize shoot apex, we show here that distinct sets of genes govern the regulation and identity of stem cells in maize versus Arabidopsis. Cell identities in the maize SAM reflect the combinatorial activity of transcription...

Here, we report that acute stress leads to hair greying through fast depletion of melanocyte stem cells (MeSCs). Combining adrenalectomy, denervation, chemogenetics, cell ablation, and MeSC-specific adrenergic receptor knockout, we found that stress-induced MeSC loss is independent of immune attack or adrenal stress ho...

Abstract BACKGROUND: A porous Ti6Al4V implant that is manufactured using selective laser melting (SLM) has broad potential applications in the field of orthopaedic implants. The pore structure of the SLM porous Ti6Al4V implant allows for cell migration and osteogenic differentiation, which is favorable for bone ingrowth and osseointegration. However, it is unclear whether the pore structure and partially melted Ti6Al4V particles on a SLM porous Ti6Al4V implant will increase bacterial adhesion and, perhaps, the risk of implant-related infection. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: (1) Is there more bacterial adhesion and colo...
