GSE140236 Tet2 interacts with SCAN domain and regulates Zscan4-associated events during cell reprogramming (ChIP-Seq)

Contributors : Dan Ye ; Zhouli ChengSeries Type : Genome binding/occupancy 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.

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...

Abstract Healing in wounds like pressure ulcers, diabetic ulcers, venous ulcers, and arterial insufficiency ulcers is immensely hampered and causes both economic burden and morbidity to patients. These wounds face plethora of hostile conditions like elevated reactive oxygen species (ROS), impaired angiogenesis, senescent fibroblast and deficient stem cells that significantly diminish the probability of self-healing in these wounds. Adipose-derived stem cell therapy (ADSC) presents a promising approach to achieve efficient healing in such cases. To address the complex scenario of chronic wounds, we propose a combin...

In this study, a combination of honey (H) and ASCs was applied on burn wounds and the injured area was then covered by a tegaderm (T) dressing in a rat model. Wound healing was evaluated by histopathological, histomorphometrical, molecular, scanning electron microscopy, and biochemical assessments on days 7, 14, and 28 post-wounding. Treatment with ASCs-containing honey (T-H/ASC) resulted in substantial reduction in the level of pro-inflammatory cytokines including interleukin-1β (IL-1β) and transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1) in wound bed, at 7 day post-surgery. T-H/ASCs also elevated the level of b...

Abstract Bioinspired non-antibiotics could prove to be a better and efficient tool to fight against antimicrobial resistance. In our study biomaterial composed of zinc-carboxymethyl chitosan (CMC)-genipin was investigated for this purpose. Briefly, CMC was synthesized and transformed to porous scaffolds using freeze drying method. The scaffolds were crosslinked and stabilized with genipin and zinc (2 M zinc acetate), respectively. IR spectroscopic data testified Zn complex formation and pointed out the absence of water molecule like that of non-antibiotic zinc motif containing proteins. Hence, the complex may be t...
