These inhibitors block the acetyl-lysine–binding pockets specifically of BET family bromodomains triggering their release from acetylated lysine residues on histones and transcription factors. These results suggest that pharmacologic BET inhibition should be interpreted in the context of distinct steps in transcriptional activation and overlapping functions among BET family members. Surprisingly, depletion of BRD3 only affected erythroid transcription in the context of BRD2 deficiency. We found that BRD2, BRD3, and BRD4 were variably recruited to GATA1-regulated genes, with BRD3 binding the greatest number of GATA1-occupied sites. BRD2 and BRD4 are essential for full GATA1 activity whereas BRD3 function overlaps with BRD2.

BET function is critical for GATA1-mediated gene activation, but not repression, by both facilitating GATA1 occupancy and subsequently activating transcription.

Partially overlapping function among BETs

Erythroid GATA1 function revealed by genome-wide analysis of transcription factor occupancy, histone modifications, and mRNA expression. BET protein function is required for inflammation: Brd2 genetic disruption and BET inhibitor JQ1 impair mouse macrophage inflammatory responses. The double bromodomain proteins Brd2 and Brd3 couple histone acetylation to transcription. Together with the ability of Brd3 overexpression to rescue BRD2 deficiency, it is possible that phenotypic differences between these proteins may be at least partially due to different expression levels.

Mammalian polycomb-like Pcl2/Mtf2 is a novel regulatory component of PRC2 that can differentially modulate polycomb activity both at the Hox gene cluster and at Cdkn2a genes. Disruption of a conserved region of Xist exon 1 impairs Xist RNA localisation and X-linked gene silencing during random and imprinted X chromosome inactivation.

Share your family tree and photos with the people you know and love Here, the authors demonstrate Src-dependent control of cell size and autophagy through disruption of the Rag GTPase–GATOR1 complex and mTORC1 activation at the lysosomal surface. Here, the authors show that lysosomal protease deficiency or substrate overload induces lysosomal stress leading to activation of a STAT3-dependent, TFEB-independent pathway of lysosomal hydrolase expression. Most approaches to control gene expression in vivo require generation of knock-in mouse lines and often lack spatiotemporal control. Insets highlight RAB26 (green, filled white arrowhead) and mitochondria (purple, open white arrowhead) interactions (time stamps of images from supplementary material Movie 2 are shown.

  • However, the assignment of enhancers to target genes by genomic distance is unreliable, potentially obscuring possible relationships between enhancer BET binding and JQ1 response.

We also noted induction of the transcriptional repressor HEXIM1 upon BET inhibition as has been observed in other cell types. Only 1 of 10 genes proximal to the top SEs identified declined by >50% upon BET inhibition (supplemental Figure 6C). We further used H3K27ac signal intensity to define SEs, and found that these were even less JQ1-sensitive than those defined using BRD4 signal. and BRD4 SEs have been suggested to reside near genes particularly sensitive to JQ1.

However, transient shRNA-mediated depletion of BRD4 significantly decreased GATA1-induced gene expression (Figure 5C) supporting its importance in this process. However, the effects of BRD2 depletion were less pronounced than those observed with JQ1 treatment implicating additional BETs in GATA1-driven erythroid gene expression. Several GATA1 targets, including Hbb-b1 (β-globin), Klf1, and Nfe2, were immediately repressed upon BET inhibition, suggesting a role for transcription of BETs downstream of GATA1 occupancy (Figure 4B, supplemental Figure 9B). To evaluate the contribution of BETs to GATA1-induced gene expression changes genome-wide, we performed microarray analysis on G1E cells treated with 250 nM JQ1 or dimethylsulfoxide control concurrent with GATA1 activation for 24 hours in biological triplicate.
