Article
Full-text available
Excitatory amino acid transporters (EAAT/SLC1) mediate Na+-dependent uptake of extracellular glutamate and are potential drug targets for neurological disorders. Conventional methods to assess glutamate transport in vitro are based on radiolabels, fluorescent dyes or electrophysiology, which potentially compromise the cell’s physiology and are gene...

Over the last decade, whole transcriptome profiling, also known as RNA-sequencing (RNA-seq), has quickly gained traction as a reliable method for unbiased assessment of gene expression. Integration of RNA-seq expression data into other omics datasets (e.g., proteomics, metabolomics, or epigenetics) solidifies our understanding of cell-specific regu...

Motor neurons (MNs) control muscle movement and are essential for breathing, walking and fine motor skills. Motor Neuron and Pancreas Homeobox 1 (MNX1) has long been recognized as a key marker of the MN lineage. Deficiency of the Mnx1 gene in mice results in early postnatal lethality - likely by causing abnormal MN development and respiratory malfu...
Article
Full-text available
In mammals, the placenta mediates maternal-fetal nutrient and waste exchange and acts in an immunomodulatory way to facilitate maternal-fetal tolerance. The placenta is highly diverse across mammalian species, yet the molecular mechanisms that distinguish the placenta of human from other mammals are not fully understood. Using an interspecies trans...

In mammals, the placenta mediates maternal-fetal nutrient and waste exchange and provides immunomodulatory actions that facilitate maternal-fetal tolerance. The placenta is highly diversified among mammalian species, yet the molecular mechanisms that distinguish the placenta of human from other mammals are not fully understood. Using an interspecie...

The Krüppel-associated box zinc finger protein (KRAB-ZFP) family diversified in mammals. The majority of human KRAB-ZFPs bind transposable elements (TEs), however, since most TEs are inactive in humans it is unclear whether KRAB-ZFPs emerged to suppress TEs. We demonstrate that many recently emerged murine KRAB-ZFPs also bind to TEs, including the...
Article

The Innovative Medicines Initiative Consortium RESOLUTE has started to develop tools and produce data sets to de-orphanize transporters in the solute carrier protein (SLC) superfamily, thereby lowering the barrier for the scientific community to explore SLCs as an attractive drug target class. The Innovative Medicines Initiative Consortium RESOLUTE...
Preprint
Full-text available
The Krüppel-associated box zinc finger protein (KRAB-ZFP) family amplified and diversified in mammals by segmental duplications, but the function of the majority of this gene family remains largely unexplored due to the inaccessibility of the gene clusters to conventional gene targeting. We determined the genomic binding sites of 61 murine KRAB-ZFP...
Article
Full-text available
Global epigenetic reprogramming is vital to purge germ cell-specific epigenetic features to establish the totipotent state of the embryo. This process transpires to be carefully regulated and is not an undirected, radical erasure of parental epigenomes. The TRIM28 complex has been shown to be crucial in embryonic epigenetic reprogramming by regiona...
Article
Full-text available
Pregnancy and parturition are intricately regulated to ensure successful reproductive outcomes. However, the factors that control gestational length in humans and other anthropoid primates remain poorly defined. Here, we show the endogenous retroviral long terminal repeat transposon-like human element 1B (THE1B) selectively controls placental expre...
Article
Tandem zinc finger (ZF) proteins are the largest and most rapidly diverging family of DNA-binding transcription regulators in mammals. ZFP568 represses a transcript of placental-specific insulin like growth factor 2 (Igf2-P0) in mice. ZFP568 binds a 24-base pair sequence-specific element upstream of Igf2-P0 via the eleven-ZF array. Both DNA and pro...

On the role of H3.3 in retroviral silencing
Article
Embryo viability relies on placental repression The insulin-like growth factor (IGF) signaling pathway controls maternal supply of and fetal demands for nutrients. Yang et al. report that the essential KRAB–zinc finger protein ZFP568 specifically and directly represses a placental-specific IGF2 transcript during early mouse development. Elimination...
Article
Full-text available
Somatic cell nuclear transfer has established that the oocyte contains maternal factors with epigenetic reprogramming capacity. Yet the identity and function of these maternal factors during the gamete to embryo transition remains poorly understood. In C. elegans, LSD1/KDM1A enables this transition by removing H3K4me2 and preventing the transgenera...
Article
Full-text available
Tandem C2H2-type zinc finger proteins (ZFPs) constitute the largest transcription factor family in animals. Tandem-ZFPs bind DNA in a sequence-specific manner through arrays of multiple zinc finger domains that allow high flexibility and specificity in target recognition. In tetrapods, a large proportion of tandem-ZFPs contain Krüppel-associated-bo...
Article
Retroviral restriction is a complex phenomenon that, despite remarkable recent progress, is far from being well understood. In this Preview, we introduce an insightful study by Yang et al. that represents the first attempt to identify the global determinants of retroviral repression in pluripotent mammalian cells.
Article
Full-text available
Retroviruses have been invading mammalian germlines for millions of years, accumulating in the form of endogenous retroviruses (ERVs) that account for nearly one-tenth of the mouse and human genomes. ERVs are epigenetically silenced during development, yet the cellular factors recognizing ERVs in a sequence-specific manner remain elusive. Here we d...
Article
Full-text available
Endogenous retroviruses (ERVs) are remnants of retroviral germ line infections and have been identified in all mammals investigated so far. Although the majority of ERVs are degenerated, some mammalian species, such as mice and pigs, carry replication-competent ERVs capable of forming infectious viral particles. In mice, ERVs are silenced by DNA me...
Article
Full-text available
The Sleeping Beauty (SB) transposon system represents an important alternative to viral integrating vector systems but may, as its viral counterparts, be subject to transcriptional silencing. To investigate shielding of SB-delivered transgene cassettes against transcriptional repression, we establish silencing assays in which SB vector-containing F...
