The Transcriptionally Permissive Chromatin State of Embryonic Stem Cells Is Acutely Tuned to Translational Output.

Cell stem cell | Mar 1, 2018

A permissive chromatin environment coupled to hypertranscription drives the rapid proliferation of embryonic stem cells (ESCs) and peri-implantation embryos. We carried out a genome-wide screen to systematically dissect the regulation of the euchromatic state of ESCs. The results revealed that cellular growth pathways, most prominently translation, perpetuate the euchromatic state and hypertranscription of ESCs. Acute inhibition of translation rapidly depletes euchromatic marks in mouse ESCs and blastocysts, concurrent with delocalization of RNA polymerase II and reduction in nascent transcription. Translation inhibition promotes rewiring of chromatin accessibility, which decreases at a subset of active developmental enhancers and increases at histone genes and transposable elements. Proteome-scale analyses revealed that several euchromatin regulators are unstable proteins and continuously depend on a high translational output. We propose that this mechanistic interdependence of euchromatin, transcription, and translation sets the pace of proliferation at peri-implantation and may be employed by other stem/progenitor cells.

GNU Image Manipulation Program

A software application for such tasks as photo retouching, image composition and image authoring. It has many capabilities such as it can be used as a simple paint program, an expert quality photo retouching program, an online batch processing system, a mass production image renderer, an image format converter, etc. GIMP is expandable and extensible and designed to be augmented with plug-ins and extensions. The advanced scripting interface allows everything from the simplest task to the most complex image manipulation procedures to be easily scripted.

CellProfiler Image Analysis Software

CellProfiler cell image analysis software is free and open-source software designed to enable biologists without training in computer vision or programming to quantitatively measure phenotypes from thousands of images automatically. It counts cells and also measures the size, shape, intensity and texture of every cell (and every labeled subcellular compartment) in every image. It was designed for high throughput screening but can perform automated image analysis for images from time-lapse movies and low-throughput experiments. CellProfiler has an increasing number of algorithms to identify and measure properties of neuronal cell types.

Protein Prospector

A package of over twenty mass spectrometry-based tools primarily geared toward proteomic data analysis and database mining. It can be run from the command line, but is primarily used through a web browser, and there is a public website that allows anyone to use the software without local installation. Tandem mass spectrometry analysis tools are used for database searching and identification of peptides, including post-translationally modified peptides and cross-linked peptides. Support for isotope and label-free quantification from this type of data is provided. MS-Viewer software allows sharing and displaying of annotated spectra from many different tandem mass spectrometry data analysis packages. Other tools include software for analyzing peptide mass fingerprinting data (MS-Fit); prediction of theoretical fragmentation of peptides (MS-Product); theoretical chemical or enzymatic digestion of proteins (MS-Digest); and theoretical modeling of the isotope distribution of any chemical, including peptides (MS-Isotope). Searches using amino acid sequence can be used to identify homologous peptides in a database (MS-Pattern); the use of the combination of amino acid sequence and masses can be used for homologous peptide and protein identification using MS-Homology. Tandem mass spectrometry peak list files can be filtered for the presence of certain peaks or neutral losses using MS-Filter. Given a list of proteins, MS-Bridge can report all potential cross-linked peptide combinations of a specified mass. Given a precursor peptide mass and information about known amino acid presence, absence, or modifications, MS-Comp can report all amino acid combinations that could lead to the observed mass.
