Transcription Factors Drive Tet2-Mediated Enhancer Demethylation to Reprogram Cell Fate.

Cell stem cell | 2018

Here, we report DNA methylation and hydroxymethylation dynamics at nucleotide resolution using C/EBPα-enhanced reprogramming of B cells into induced pluripotent cells (iPSCs). We observed successive waves of hydroxymethylation at enhancers, concomitant with a decrease in DNA methylation, suggesting active demethylation. Consistent with this finding, ablation of the DNA demethylase Tet2 almost completely abolishes reprogramming. C/EBPα, Klf4, and Tfcp2l1 each interact with Tet2 and recruit the enzyme to specific DNA sites. During reprogramming, some of these sites maintain high levels of 5hmC, and enhancers and promoters of key pluripotency factors become demethylated as early as 1 day after Yamanaka factor induction. Surprisingly, methylation changes precede chromatin opening in distinct chromatin regions, including Klf4 bound sites, revealing a pioneer factor activity associated with alternation in DNA methylation. Rapid changes in hydroxymethylation similar to those in B cells were also observed during compound-accelerated reprogramming of fibroblasts into iPSCs, highlighting the generality of our observations.

MACS (tool)


An algorithm for identifying transcript factor binding sites. MACS captures the influence of genome complexity to evaluate the significance of enriched ChIP regions, and MACS improves the spatial resolution of binding sites through combining the information of both sequencing tag position and orientation. MACS can be easily used for ChIP-Seq data alone, or with control sample with the increase of specificity.

Regulatory Sequence Analysis Tools (tool)


The release of complete genomic sequences not only offered a huge amount of new data for the molecular biologist, but also impulsed the development of new computational techniques required for the analysis of these data. Most informatic tools currently available were conceived essentially for the analysis of coding sequences. Non-coding sequences present however a striking interest since they govern the regulation of gene expression. This site offers a series of tools dedicated to the detection of regulatory signals in non-coding sequences. The only input required is a list of genes of interest (e.g. a family of co-regulated genes). From this information, you can retrieve the upstream sequences over a desired distance, discover putative regulatory signals, search the matching positions for these signals in your original dataset or in whole genomes, and display the results graphically in the form of a feature map. Abstract The preparation of an appropriate sequence dataset is the starting point of all genomic analyses. We present retrieve-ensembl-seq, an application that considerably eases the retrieval of sequences from the Ensembl database, via our user-friendly web site or web services. The user provides Ensembl identifiers or gene names, and the program returns corresponding upstream, downstream, intronic, exonic, UTR or whole gene sequences. retrieve-ensembl-seq also offers a multiple organism mode to retrieve sequences from homologous genes at any taxonomical level. And we introduce various original filters such as the masking of coding fragments and the avoidance of sequence redundancy for genes with multiple transcripts. retrieve-ensembl-seq is included in the software suite regulatory sequence analysis tools (RSAT), allowing instant submission of retrieved sequences to further analysis tools. AVAILABILITY: retrieve-ensembl-seq is integrated in the RSAT suite: Web site: Web services: Stand-alone distribution: freely available under an academic licence to download from the RSAT web site. The complete manual, a convenient tutorial and demos are available from the RSAT website. Additional help can be found on the RSAT public forum.
