High-resolution mapping studies of chromatin and gene regulatory elements

Alan P Boyle, Terrence S Furey
2009 Epigenomics  
Microarray and high-throughput sequencing technologies have enabled the development of comprehensive assays to identify locations of particular chromatin structures and regulatory elements. It is now possible to create genome-wide maps of DNA methylation, trans-factor binding sites, histone variants and histone tail modifications, nucleosome positions, regions of open chromatin, and chromosome locations and interactions. This review provides a summary of these new assays that are changing the

While the generation of large amounts of data from these experiments is becoming increasingly easier, the development of corresponding analysis methods has progressed more slowly. It will likely be years before the full extent of the information contained in these data is fully appreciated. The rapid completion of the sequencing of many eukaryotic genomes is providing researchers with a necessary scaffold for advancing our knowledge of gene function and regulation. Annotating locations of transcribed protein-coding sequences within genomes has been a major initial focus, but simply knowing their locations does little to reveal just how their expression is regulated. The corresponding discovery of non-coding regulatory elements has lagged behind, owing to a much weaker or complete lack of signal in the primary DNA sequence. Previous attempts to identify regulatory elements have either focused on computational techniques to identify transcription factor binding sites and cis-regulatory modules, or were based on lower-throughput chromatin assays that looked at a small number of loci or functional assays that perturbed sequences within regulatory regions. Computational methods have a low specificity, producing many false-positives and providing no information about cell-specific or condition-specific regulation. Traditional wet laboratory experiments lack global sensitivity, since they were restricted to analyzing only small regions of the genome. Chromatin structure has been known to play a critical role in gene regulation. DNA accessibility, largely governed through the global and local positioning of nucleosomes, can be altered, preventing transcription factors from binding DNA; histones and their modifications

ChIP–seq and beyond: new and improved methodologies to detect and characterize protein–DNA interactions

Terrence S. Furey
2012 Nature reviews genetics  
| Chromatin immunoprecipitation experiments followed by sequencing (ChIPseq) detect protein-DNA binding events and chemical modifications of histone proteins. Challenges in the standard ChIP-seq protocol have motivated recent enhancements in this approach, such as reducing the number of cells that are required and increasing the resolution. Complementary experimental approaches -for example, DNaseI hypersensitive site mapping and analysis of chromatin interactions that are mediated by

These data are now being used to identify variability in the functions of DNA-binding proteins across genomes and individuals.

2008 Cell  
Mapping DNase I hypersensitive (HS) sites is an accurate method of identifying the location of genetic regulatory elements, including promoters, enhancers, silencers, insulators, and locus control regions. We employed high-throughput sequencing and wholegenome tiled array strategies to identify DNase I HS sites within human primary CD4 + T cells. Combining these two technologies, we have created a comprehensive and accurate genome-wide open chromatin map. Surprisingly, only 16%-21% of the

In conjunction with expression, motif, and chromatin immunoprecipitation data, we find evidence of cell-type-specific characteristics, including the ability to identify transcription start sites and locations of different chromatin marks utilized in these cells. In addition, and unexpectedly, our analyses have uncovered detailed features of nucleosome structure.

Epigenetic mechanisms such as chromatin accessibility impact transcription factor binding to DNA and transcriptional specificity. The androgen receptor (AR), a master regulator of the male phenotype and prostate cancer pathogenesis, acts primarily through ligand-activated transcription of target genes. Although several determinants of AR transcriptional specificity have been elucidated, our understanding of the interplay between chromatin accessibility and AR function remains incomplete.
more » ... : We used deep sequencing to assess chromatin structure via DNase I hypersensitivity and mRNA abundance, and paired these datasets with three independent AR ChIP-seq datasets. Our analysis revealed qualitative and quantitative differences in chromatin accessibility that corresponded to both AR binding and an enrichment of motifs for potential collaborating factors, one of which was identified as SP1. These quantitative differences were significantly associated with AR-regulated mRNA transcription across the genome. Base-pair resolution of the DNase I cleavage profile revealed three distinct footprinting patterns associated with the AR-DNA interaction, suggesting multiple modes of AR interaction with the genome. Conclusions: In contrast with other DNA-binding factors, AR binding to the genome does not only target regions that are accessible to DNase I cleavage prior to hormone induction. AR binding is invariably associated with an increase in chromatin accessibility and, consequently, changes in gene expression. Furthermore, we present the first in vivo evidence that a significant fraction of AR binds only to half of the full AR DNA motif. These findings indicate a dynamic quantitative relationship between chromatin structure and AR-DNA binding that impacts AR transcriptional specificity.
