Mammalian circadian rhythms are generated by a negative feedback loop in which PERIOD (PER) proteins accumulate, form a large nuclear complex (PER complex), and bind the transcription factor CLOCK-BMAL1, repressing their own expression. We found that mouse PER complexes include the Mi-2/nucleosome remodelling and deacetylase (NuRD) transcriptional corepressor. Unexpectedly, two NuRD subunits, CHD4 and MTA2, constitutively associate with CLOCK-BMAL1, with CHD4 functioning to promote CLOCK-BMAL1 transcriptional activity...

REVIEW
Judith H I Haarhuis, Ahmed M O Elbatsh, Benjamin D Rowland
The X shape of chromosomes is one of the iconic images in biology. Cohesin actually connects the sister chromatids along their entire length, from S phase until mitosis. Then, cohesin's antagonist Wapl allows the separation of chromosome arms by opening a DNA exit gate in cohesin rings. Centromeres are protected against this removal activity, resulting in the X shape of mitotic chromosomes. The destruction of the remaining centromeric cohesin by Separase triggers chromosome segregation. We review the two-phase regulation of cohesin removal and discuss how this affects chromosome alignment and decatenation in mitosis and cohesin reloading in the next cell cycle...

The pluripotent state of embryonic stem cells (ESCs) is produced by active transcription of genes that control cell identity and repression of genes encoding lineage-specifying developmental regulators. Here, we use ESC cohesin ChIA-PET data to identify the local chromosomal structures at both active and repressed genes across the genome. The results produce a map of enhancer-promoter interactions and reveal that super-enhancer-driven genes generally occur within chromosome structures that are formed by the looping of two interacting CTCF sites co-occupied by cohesin...

Search Tips

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase

"primary prevention of cancer"
(heart or cardiac or cardio*) AND arrest -"American Heart Association"
