UK-18892, a new aminoglycoside: an in vitro study. (1/6505)

UK-18892 is a new aminoglycoside antibiotic, a derivative of kanamycin A structurally related to amikacin. It was found to be active against a wide range of pathogenic bacteria, including many gentamicin-resistant strains. The spectrum and degree of activity of UK-18892 were similar to those of amikacin, and differences were relatively minor. UK-18892 was about twice as active as amikacin against gentamicin-susceptible strains of Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Both amikacin and UK-18892 were equally active against gentamicin-resistant strains of P. aeruginosa. There were no appreciable differences in the activity of UK-18892 and amikacin against Enterobacteriaceae and Staphylococcus aureus. Cross-resistance between these two antimicrobials was also apparent.  (+info)

Prodigious substrate specificity of AAC(6')-APH(2"), an aminoglycoside antibiotic resistance determinant in enterococci and staphylococci. (2/6505)

BACKGROUND: High-level gentamicin resistance in enterococci and staphylococci is conferred by AAC(6')-APH(2"), an enzyme with 6'-N-acetyltransferase and 2"-O-phosphotransferase activities. The presence of this enzyme in pathogenic gram-positive bacteria prevents the successful use of gentamicin C and most other aminoglycosides as therapeutic agents. RESULTS: In an effort to understand the mechanism of aminoglycoside modification, we expressed AAC(6')-APH(2") in Bacillus subtilis. The purified enzyme is monomeric with a molecular mass of 57 kDa and displays both the expected aminoglycoside N-acetyltransferase and O-phosphotransferase activities. Structure-function analysis with various aminoglycosides substrates reveals an enzyme with broad specificity in both enzymatic activities, accounting for AAC(6')-APH(2")'s dramatic negative impact on clinical aminoglycoside therapy. Both lividomycin A and paromomycin, aminoglycosides lacking a 6'-amino group, were acetylated by AAC(6')-APH(2"). The infrared spectrum of the product of paromomycin acetylation yielded a signal consistent with O-acetylation. Mass spectral and nuclear magnetic resonance analysis of the products of neomycin phosphorylation indicated that phosphoryl transfer occurred primarily at the 3'-OH of the 6-aminohexose ring A, and that some diphosphorylated material was also present with phosphates at the 3'-OH and the 3"'-OH of ring D, both unprecedented observations for this enzyme. Furthermore, the phosphorylation site of lividomycin A was determined to be the 5"-OH of the pentose ring C. CONCLUSIONS: The bifunctional AAC(6')-APH(2") has the capacity to inactivate virtually all clinically important aminoglycosides through N- and O-acetylation and phosphorylation of hydroxyl groups. The extremely broad substrate specificity of this enzyme will impact on future development of aminoglycosides and presents a significant challenge for antibiotic design.  (+info)

Probing interactions between HIV-1 reverse transcriptase and its DNA substrate with backbone-modified nucleotides. (3/6505)

BACKGROUND: To gain a molecular understanding of a biochemical process, the crystal structure of enzymes that catalyze the reactions involved is extremely helpful. Often the question arises whether conformations obtained in this way appropriately reflect the reactivity of enzymes, however. Rates that characterize transitions are therefore compulsory experiments for the elucidation of the reaction mechanism. Such experiments have been performed for the reverse transcriptase of the type 1 human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-1 RT). RESULTS: We have developed a methodology to monitor the interplay between HIV-1 RT and its DNA substrate. To probe the protein-DNA interactions, the sugar backbone of one nucleotide was modified by a substituent that influenced the efficiency of the chain elongation in a characteristic way. We found that strand elongation after incorporation of the modified nucleotide follows a discontinuous efficiency for the first four nucleotides. The reaction efficiencies could be correlated with the distance between the sugar substituent and the enzyme. The model was confirmed by kinetic experiments with HIV-1 RT mutants. CONCLUSIONS: Experiments with HIV-1 RT demonstrate that strand-elongation efficiency using a modified nucleotide correlates well with distances between the DNA substrate and the enzyme. The functional group at the modified nucleotides acts as an 'antenna' for steric interactions that changes the optimal transition state. Kinetic experiments in combination with backbone-modified nucleotides can therefore be used to gain structural information about reverse transcriptases and DNA polymerases.  (+info)

High-throughput screening of small molecules in miniaturized mammalian cell-based assays involving post-translational modifications. (4/6505)

BACKGROUND: Fully adapting a forward genetic approach to mammalian systems requires efficient methods to alter systematically gene products without prior knowledge of gene sequences, while allowing for the subsequent characterization of these alterations. Ideally, these methods would also allow function to be altered in a temporally controlled manner. RESULTS: We report the development of a miniaturized cell-based assay format that enables a genetic-like approach to understanding cellular pathways in mammalian systems using small molecules, rather than mutations, as the source of gene-product alterations. This whole-cell immunodetection assay can sensitively detect changes in specific cellular macromolecules in high-density arrays of mammalian cells. Furthermore, it is compatible with screening large numbers of small molecules in nanoliter to microliter culture volumes. We refer to this assay format as a 'cytoblot', and demonstrate the use of cytoblotting to monitor biosynthetic processes such as DNA synthesis, and post-translational processes such as acetylation and phosphorylation. Finally, we demonstrate the applicability of these assays to natural-product screening through the identification of marine sponge extracts exhibiting genotype-specific inhibition of 5-bromodeoxyuridine incorporation and suppression of the anti-proliferative effect of rapamycin. CONCLUSIONS: We show that cytoblots can be used for high-throughput screening of small molecules in cell-based assays. Together with small-molecule libraries, the cytoblot assay can be used to perform chemical genetic screens analogous to those used in classical genetics and thus should be applicable to understanding a wide variety of cellular processes, especially those involving post-transitional modifications.  (+info)

A novel H2A/H4 nucleosomal histone acetyltransferase in Tetrahymena thermophila. (5/6505)

Recently, we reported the identification of a 55-kDa polypeptide (p55) from Tetrahymena macronuclei as a catalytic subunit of a transcription-associated histone acetyltransferase (HAT A). Extensive homology between p55 and Gcn5p, a component of the SAGA and ADA transcriptional coactivator complexes in budding yeast, suggests an immediate link between the regulation of chromatin structure and transcriptional output. Here we report the characterization of a second transcription-associated HAT activity from Tetrahymena macronuclei. This novel activity is distinct from complexes containing p55 and putative ciliate SAGA and ADA components and shares several characteristics with NuA4 (for nucleosomal H2A/H4), a 1.8-MDa, Gcn5p-independent HAT complex recently described in yeast. A key feature of both the NuA4 and Tetrahymena activities is their acetylation site specificity for lysines 5, 8, 12, and 16 of H4 and lysines 5 and 9 of H2A in nucleosomal substrates, patterns that are distinct from those of known Gcn5p family members. Moreover, like NuA4, the Tetrahymena activity is capable of activating transcription from nucleosomal templates in vitro in an acetyl coenzyme A-dependent fashion. Unlike NuA4, however, sucrose gradient analyses of the ciliate enzyme, following sequential denaturation and renaturation, estimate the molecular size of the catalytically active subunit to be approximately 80 kDa, consistent with the notion that a single polypeptide or a stable subcomplex is sufficient for this H2A/H4 nucleosomal HAT activity. Together, these data document the importance of this novel HAT activity for transcriptional activation from chromatin templates and suggest that a second catalytic HAT subunit, in addition to p55/Gcn5p, is conserved between yeast and Tetrahymena.  (+info)

Virus infection leads to localized hyperacetylation of histones H3 and H4 at the IFN-beta promoter. (6/6505)

Transcriptional activation of the human interferon-beta (IFN-beta) gene by virus infection requires the assembly of a higher order nucleoprotein complex, the enhanceosome, which consists of the transcriptional activators NF-kappa B (p50/p65), ATF-2/c-jun, IRF-3 and IRF-7, architectural protein HMGI(Y), and the coactivators p300 and CBP. In this report, we show that virus infection of cells results in a dramatic hyperacetylation of histones H3 and H4 that is localized to the IFN-beta promoter. Furthermore, expressing a truncated version of IRF-3, which lacks a p300/CBP interaction domain, suppresses both histone hyperacetylation and activation of the IFN-beta gene. Thus, coactivator-mediated localized hyperacetylation of histones may play a crucial role in inducible gene expression.  (+info)

Gibberellic acid stabilises microtubules in maize suspension cells to cold and stimulates acetylation of alpha-tubulin. (7/6505)

Gibberellic acid is known to stabilise microtubules in plant organs against depolymerisation. We have now devised a simplified cell system for studying this. Pretreatment of a maize cell suspension with gibberellic acid for just 3 h stabilised protoplast microtubules against depolymerisation on ice. In other eukaryotes, acetylation of alpha-tubulin is known to correlate with microtubule stabilisation but this is not established in plants. By isolating the polymeric tubulin fraction from maize cytoskeletons and immunoblotting with the antibody 6-11B-1, we have demonstrated that gibberellic acid stimulates the acetylation of alpha-tubulin. This is the first demonstrated link between microtubule stabilisation and tubulin acetylation in higher plants.  (+info)

Expanded lysine acetylation specificity of Gcn5 in native complexes. (8/6505)

The coactivator/adaptor protein Gcn5 is a conserved histone acetyltransferase, which functions as the catalytic subunit in multiple yeast transcriptional regulatory complexes. The ability of Gcn5 to acetylate nucleosomal histones is significantly reduced relative to its activity on free histones, where it predominantly modifies histone H3 at lysine 14. However, the association of Gcn5 in multisubunit complexes potentiates its nucleosomal histone acetyltransferase activity. Here, we show that the association of Gcn5 with other proteins in two native yeast complexes, Ada and SAGA (Spt-Ada-Gcn5-acetyltransferase), directly confers upon Gcn5 the ability to acetylate an expanded set of lysines on H3. Furthermore Ada and SAGA have overlapping, yet distinct, patterns of acetylation, suggesting that the association of specific subunits determines site specificity.  (+info)

Global alterations in histone acetylation levels have been observed in both normal and cancer cells and can be prognostic of clinical outcome. However, unlike site-specific acetylation changes that can affect transcription of particular genes, the reason for genome-wide changes has been less clear. Because acetyl-coA molecules required for histone acetylation and acetate anions generated by histone deacetylation are required for many metabolic processes, McBrian and colleagues hypothesized that metabolic or physiologic cues might affect global histone acetylation levels. Systematic testing of the effects of culture medium components on histone acetylation revealed that decreased sodium bicarbonate concentrations resulting in lowered extracellular and intracellular pH led to a rapid, marked reduction in total levels of histone H3 and H4 acetylation at multiple lysine residues. These pH-dependent changes were specific to histone acetylation, as histone methylation was unaffected and required ...
Protein acetylation affects gene expression, as well as other processes in cells, and it might be dependent on the availability of the metals. However, whether iron chelating compounds (siderophores) can have an effect on the acetylation process in plant roots is largely unknown. In the present study, western blotting and confocal microscopy was used to examine the degree of acetylation of histone H3 and alpha tubulin in Pinus sylvestris root cells in the presence of structurally different siderophores. The effect of metabolites that were produced by pathogenic and mycorrhizal fungi was also assessed. No effect was observed on histone acetylation. By contrast, the metabolites of the pathogenic fungus were able to decrease the level of microtubule acetylation, whereas treatment with iron-free ferrioxamine (DFO) was able to increase it. This latter was not observed when ferrioxamine-iron complexes were used. The pathogen metabolites induced important modifications of cytoskeleton organization.
Pathogen infection triggers complex molecular perturbations within host cells that results in either resistance or susceptibility. Protein acetylation is an emerging biochemical modification that appears to play central roles during host-pathogen interactions. To date, research in this area has focused on two main themes linking protein acetylation to plant immune signaling. Firstly, it has been established that proper gene expression during defense responses requires modulation of histone acetylation within target gene promoter regions. Second, some pathogens can deliver effector molecules that encode acetyltransferases directly within the host cell to modify acetylation of specific host proteins. Collectively these findings suggest that the acetylation level for a range of host proteins may be modulated to alter the outcome of pathogen infection. This review will focus on summarizing our current understanding of the roles of protein acetylation in plant defense and highlight the utility of proteomics
AbstractLysine acetylation is a reversible post-translational modification (PTM) which has been linked to many biological and pathological implications. Hence, localization of lysine acetylation is essential for deciphering the mechanism of such implications. Whereas many acetylated lysines in human proteins have been localized through experimental approaches in wet lab, it still fails to reach completion. In the present study, we proposed a novel feature extraction approach, bi-relative adapted binomial score Bayes (BRABSB), combined with support vector machines (SVMs) to construct a human-specific lysine acetylation predictor, which yields, on average, a sensitivity of 83.91%, a specificity of 87.25% and an accuracy of 85.58%, in the case of 5-fold cross validation experiments. Results obtained through the validation on independent data sets show that the proposed approach here outperforms other existing lysine acetylation predictors. Furthermore, due to the fact that global analysis of human ...
Posttranslational modification of proteins by acetylation and phosphorylation regulates most cellular processes in living organisms. Surprisingly, the evolutionary conservation of phosphorylated serine and threonine residues is only marginally higher than that of unmodified serines and threonines. With high-resolution mass spectrometry, we identified 1981 lysine acetylation sites in the proteome of Drosophila melanogaster. We used data sets of experimentally identified acetylation and phosphorylation sites in Drosophila and humans to analyze the evolutionary conservation of these modification sites between flies and humans. Site-level conservation analysis revealed that acetylation sites are highly conserved, significantly more so than phosphorylation sites. Furthermore, comparison of lysine conservation in Drosophila and humans with that in nematodes and zebrafish revealed that acetylated lysines were significantly more conserved than were nonacetylated lysines. Bioinformatics analysis using ...

Our collaboration with the group of Prof. Zheng on histone acetylation has led to a combined experimental/computational paper available from the Journal of Biological Chemistry.
The distribution of acetylated isoforms of histone H4 along Chinese hamster chromosomes has been studied by immunostaining with antibodies recognizing H4 acetylated at defined lysines in its N-terminal domain. The heterochromatic long arm of the X chromosome in both female (CHO) and male (DON) cell lines is underacetylated at three out of four lysines (5, 8, and 12). In contrast, the level of acetylation at lysine 16, which is the first to be acetylated in mammals, was similar in X chromosomes and autosomes. Labeling of the cells with bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) to mark late-replicating chromosome domains, followed by double immunostaining with antibodies to BrdU and acetylated H4, showed a close, though not perfect, correlation between late replication and low levels of H4 acetylation. The results show that levels of histone acetylation are associated with the replication timing of defined domains on both the X chromosome and autosomes, but the exceptions we observe suggest that this link is not absolute
Newly synthesized histone H4 is deposited in a diacetylated isoform in a wide variety of organisms. In Tetrahymena a specific pair of residues, lysines 4 and 11, have been shown to undergo this modification in vivo. In this report, we demonstrate that the analogous residues, lysines 5 and 12, are acetylated in Drosophila and HeLa H4. These data strongly suggest that deposition-related acetylation sites in H4 have been highly, perhaps absolutely, conserved. In Tetrahymena and Drosophila newly synthesized histone H3 is also deposited in several modified forms. Using pulse-labeled H3 we have determined that, like H4, a specific, but distinct, subset of lysines is acetylated in these organisms. In Tetrahymena, lysines 9 and 14 are highly preferred sites of acetylation in new H3 while in Drosophila, lysines 14 and 23 are strongly preferred. No evidence has been obtained for acetylation of newly synthesized H3 in HeLa cells. Thus, although the pattern and sites of deposition-related acetylation appear ...
Many studies have shown that SIRT3 deficiency results in increased mitochondrial acetylation and reduced activity of numerous mitochondrial enzymes (Newman et al, 2012). SIRT3 protein levels are increased upon fasting and calorie restriction (Shi et al, 2005; Palacios et al, 2009; Hirschey et al, 2010; Tao et al, 2010; Newman et al, 2012), and increased SIRT3 activity has been suggested to regulate metabolism under these conditions. However, with the exception of a single study (Fan et al, 2014), a regulatory axis between enzyme‐catalyzed acetylation and SIRT3‐mediated deacetylation has not been demonstrated. A hallmark of protein regulation by posttranslational modifications is site‐specific, enzyme‐catalyzed modification that mostly occurs in a conditional manner. However, there is little evidence of enzyme‐catalyzed, site‐specific acetylation in mitochondria, and several studies suggest that most mitochondrial acetylation occurs nonenzymatically (Wagner & Payne, 2013; Pougovkina ...
Long-lasting memories require specific gene expression programmes that are, in part, orchestrated by epigenetic mechanisms. Of the epigenetic modifications identified in cognitive processes, histone acetylation has spurred considerable interest. Whereas increments in histone acetylation have consistently been shown to favour learning and memory, a lack thereof has been causally implicated in cognitive impairments in neurodevelopmental disorders, neurodegeneration and ageing. As histone acetylation and cognitive functions can be pharmacologically restored by histone deacetylase inhibitors, this epigenetic modification might constitute a molecular memory aid on the chromatin and, by extension, a new template for therapeutic interventions against cognitive frailty..

Histone acetylation is a hallmark of chromatin that has an open structure that can be accessed by DNA and RNA polymerases as well as transcription factors, resulting in the activation of gene transcription (Filippakopoulos and Knapp, 2014). Correspondingly, histone methylation increases the basicity and hydrophobicity of histone tails and the affinity of certain proteins, such as transcription factors, toward DNA (Teperino et al., 2010), thus affecting the gene expression. In this database, we have collected 584 non-redundant protein data of 8 organisms including H. sapiens, M. musculus, R. norvegicus, D. melanogaster, C. elegans, A. thaliana, S. pombe and S. cerevisiae from the literature. The data are further classified into 15 families for histone acetylation writers, erasers and readers and 32 families for histone methylation writers, erasers and readers, respectively. WERAM 1.0 is a comprehensive Eukaryotic Writers, Erasers and Readers protein of Histone Acetylation and Methylation system ...

AU - Castellano, Sabrina. AU - Capogrossi, Maurizio C.. AU - Martelli, Fabio. AU - Gaetano, Carlo. PY - 2013. Y1 - 2013. N2 - In physiopathological conditions, such as diabetes, wound healing is significantly compromised and chronic complications, including ulcers, may occur. In a mouse model of skin repair, we recently reported that wound treatment with Sirtuin activators and class I HDAC inhibitors induced keratinocyte proliferation and enhanced healing via a nitric oxide (NO) dependent mechanism. We observed an increase in total protein acetylation in the wound area, as determined by acetylation of a-tubulin and histone H3 Lysine 9. We reasoned that this process activated cell function as well as regulated gene expression to foster tissue repair. We report here that the direct activation of P300/CBP-associated factor ...
This study shows that Rb is a key regulator of differentiation and that acetylation is an important modification during this process. We have investigated the role of Rb acetylation in keratinocyte differentiation by mutating the major acetylation sites, lysines 873 and 874, to arginine and then determining the ability of the mutant to restore differentiation in Rb-knockdown keratinocytes. Mutation of the acetylation sites did not affect the ability of Rb to inhibit the proliferation, probably because of the fact that RbRR can interact with and inhibit E2F1 (Markham et al., 2006). This also suggests that inhibition of E2F family members is not sufficient to induce terminal differentiation, as has previously reported in the Saos-2 cell line (Sellers et al., 1998). However, unlike wild-type Rb, the acetylation mutant is unable to induce either early or late differentiation markers and, because Rb is acetylated relatively late during differentiation, this suggests that either the early events are ...

Lysine acetylation is an important posttranslational modification that regulates microtubules and microfilaments, but its effects on intermediate filament proteins (IFs) are unknown. We investigated the regulation of keratin 8 (K8), a type II simple epithelial IF, by lysine acetylation. K8 was basally acetylated and the highly conserved Lys-207 was a major acetylation site. K8 acetylation regulated filament organization and decreased keratin solubility. Acetylation of K8 was rapidly responsive to changes in glucose levels and was up-regulated in response to nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) depletion and in diabetic mouse and human livers. The NAD-dependent deacetylase sirtuin 2 (SIRT2) associated with and deacetylated K8. Pharmacologic or genetic inhibition of SIRT2 decreased K8 solubility and affected filament organization. Inhibition of K8 Lys-207 acetylation resulted in site-specific phosphorylation changes of K8. Therefore, K8 acetylation at Lys-207, a highly conserved residue among ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Metabolic control of methylation and acetylation. AU - Su, Xiaoyang. AU - Wellen, Kathryn E.. AU - Rabinowitz, Joshua D.. PY - 2016/2/1. Y1 - 2016/2/1. N2 - Methylation and acetylation of DNA and histone proteins are the chemical basis for epigenetics. From bacteria to humans, methylation and acetylation are sensitive to cellular metabolic status. Modification rates depend on the availability of one-carbon and two-carbon substrates (S-adenosylmethionine, acetyl-CoA, and in bacteria also acetyl-phosphate). In addition, they are sensitive to demodification enzyme cofactors (α-ketoglutarate, NAD+) and structural analog metabolites that function as epigenetic enzyme inhibitors (e.g., S-adenosylhomocysteine, 2-hydroxyglutarate). Methylation and acetylation likely initially evolved to tailor protein activities in microbes to their metabolic milieu. While the extracellular environment of mammals is more tightly controlled, the combined impact of nutrient abundance and metabolic enzyme ...
|P>Eukaryotic transcription is a highly regulated process, and acetylation plays a major role in this regulation. Acetylation can occur on histones, DNA-binding TF (Transcription Factors), acetylases, nuclear import factors, non-nuclear proteins (Alpha-tubulin) and proteins that shuttle from the nucleus to [...]
Regulation of gene expression is mediated by several mechanisms including DNA methylation, ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling, and posttranslational modifications of histones. One of the major modifications of histones consists of the dynamic acetylation and deacetylation of ε-amino groups of lysine residues present in the tail of core histones.1 The enzymes responsible for this reversible acetylation/deacetylation process are histone acetyltransferases (HATs) and histone deacetylases (HDACs), respectively.
Acetylation of non-histone proteins is increasingly recognized as an important post-translational modification for controlling the actions of various cellular processes including DNA repair and damage response. Here, we report that the human MutS homologue hMSH4 undergoes acetylation following DNA damage induced by ionizing radiation (IR). To determine which acetyltransferases are responsible for hMSH4 acetylation in response to DNA damage, potential interactions of hMSH4 with hTip60, hGCN5, and hMof were analyzed. The results of these experiments indicate that only hMof interacts with hMSH4 in a DNA damage-dependent manner. Intriguingly, the interplay between hMSH4 and hMof manipulates the outcomes of nonhomologous end joining (NHEJ)-mediated DNA double strand break (DSB) repair and thereby controls cell survival in response to IR. This study also shows that hMSH4 interacts with HDAC3, by which HDAC3 negatively regulates the levels of hMSH4 acetylation. Interestingly, elevated levels of HDAC3 correlate
The two cotranslational processes, cleavage of N‐terminal methionine residues and N‐terminal acetylation, are by far the most common modifications, occurring on the vast majority of proteins. Proteins from prokaryotes, mitochondria and chloroplasts initiate with formylmethionine, whereas proteins from the cytosol of eukaryotes initiate with methionine. The formyl group is removed from prokaryotic proteins by a deformylase, resulting in methionine at the N‐termini. The methionine at the N‐termini is cleaved from nascent chains of most prokaryotic and eukaryotic proteins. N‐terminal acetylation occurs subsequently on certain of the proteins, either containing or lacking the methionine residue. This N‐terminal acetylation occurs on more than one‐half of eukaryotic proteins, but seldom on prokaryotic proteins (Driessen et al., 1985; Kendall et al., 1990).. Because the N‐terminal region of yeast iso‐1‐cytochrome c (iso‐1) is dispensable for biosynthesis, function and ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - The structural basis of protein acetylation by the p300/CBP transcriptional coactivator. AU - Liu, Xin. AU - Wang, Ling. AU - Zhao, Kehao. AU - Thompson, Paul R.. AU - Hwang, Yousang. AU - Marmorstein, Ronen. AU - Cole, Philip A.. PY - 2008/2/14. Y1 - 2008/2/14. N2 - The transcriptional coactivator p300/CBP (CREBBP) is a histone acetyltransferase (HAT) that regulates gene expression by acetylating histones and other transcription factors. Dysregulation of p300/CBP HAT activity contributes to various diseases including cancer. Sequence alignments, enzymology experiments and inhibitor studies on p300/CBP have led to contradictory results about its catalytic mechanism and its structural relation to the Gcn5/PCAF and MYST HATs. Here we describe a high-resolution X-ray crystal structure of a semi-synthetic heterodimeric p300 HAT domain in complex with a bi-substrate inhibitor, Lys-CoA. This structure shows that p300/CBP is a distant cousin of other structurally characterized HATs, but ...
The 70kDa ribosomal protein S6 kinases (S6K1 and S6K2) play important roles in the regulation of protein synthesis, cell growth and survival. S6Ks are activated in response to mitogen stimulation and nutrient sufficiency by the phosphorylation of conserved serine and threonine residues. Here we show for the first time, that in addition to phosphorylation, S6Ks are also targeted by lysine acetylation. Following mitogen stimulation, S6Ks interact with the p300 and p300/CBP-associated factor (PCAF) acetyltransferases. S6Ks can be acetylated by p300 and PCAF in vitro and S6K acetylation is detected in cells expressing p300. Furthermore, it appears that the acetylation sites targeted by p300 lie within the divergent C-terminal regulatory domains of both S6K1 and S6K2. Acetylation of S6K1 and 2 is increased upon the inhibition of class I/II histone deacetylases (HDACs) by trichostatin-A, while the enhancement of S6K1 acetylation by nicotinamide suggests the additional involvement of sirtuin ...
Caltag Medsystems provide a range of kits to study histone acetylation and histone deacetylation which is involved the addition or removal of an acetyl group on lysine residues in the N-terminal tail and on the surface of the nucelosome core of histone proteins. Acetylated and deacetylated histones are considered epigenetic tags within chromatin by relaxing (euchromatin) or tightening (heterochromatin) chromatin structure, subsequently increasing or decreasing gene transcription levels. Kits are available for Histone Acetylation Quantification, Histone Acetyltransferase (HAT) Assays, and Histone Deacetylase (HDAC) Assays.

Jun dimerization protein-2 (JDP2) is a component of the AP-1 transcription factor that represses transactivation mediated by the Jun family of proteins. Here, we examine the functional mechanisms of JDP2 and show that it can inhibit p300-mediated acetylation of core histones in vitro and in vivo. Inhibition of histone acetylation requires the N-terminal 35 residues and the DNA-binding region of JDP2. In addition, we demonstrate that JDP2 has histone-chaperone activity in vitro. These results suggest that the sequence-specific DNA-binding protein JDP2 may control transcription via direct regulation of the modification of histones and the assembly of chromatin.
Transcription regulation in pluripotent embryonic stem (ES) cells is a complex process that involves multitude of regulatory layers, one of which is post-translational modification of histones. Acetylation of specific lysine residues of histones plays a key role in regulating gene expression. Here we have investigated the genome-wide occurrence of two histone marks, acetylation of histone H3K9 and K14 (H3K9ac and H3K14ac), in mouse embryonic stem (mES) cells. Genome-wide H3K9ac and H3K14ac show very high correlation between each other as well as with other histone marks (such as H3K4me3) suggesting a coordinated regulation of active histone marks. Moreover, the levels of H3K9ac and H3K14ac directly correlate with the CpG content of the promoters attesting the importance of sequences underlying the specifically modified nucleosomes. Our data provide evidence that H3K9ac and H3K14ac are also present over the previously described bivalent promoters, along with H3K4me3 and H3K27me3. Furthermore, like
© 2014 The Authors. Gene transcription responds to stress and metabolic signals to optimize growth and survival. Histone H3 (H3) lysine 4 trimethylation (K4me3) facilitates state changes, but how levels are coordinated with the environment is unclear. Here, we show that isomerization of H3 at the alanine 15-proline 16 (A15-P16) peptide bond is influenced by lysine 14 (K14) and controls gene-specific K4me3 by balancing the actions of Jhd2, the K4me3 demethylase, and Spp1, a subunit of the Set1 K4 methyltransferase complex. Acetylation at K14 favors the A15-P16. trans conformation and reduces K4me3. Environmental stress-induced genes are most sensitive to the changes atK14 influencing H3 tail conformation and K4me3. By contrast, ribosomal protein genes maintain K4me3, required for their repression during stress, independently of Spp1, K14, and P16. Thus, the plasticity in control of K4me3, via signaling to K14 and isomerization at P16, informs distinct gene regulatory mechanisms and processes involving
Protein acetylation plays a critical regulatory role in eukaryotes but until recently its significance and function in bacteria and the archaea were obscure. It is now clear, however, that prokaryotes have the capacity to acetylate both the α-amino groups of N-terminal residues and the ε-amino group …

On the other hand, if acetylation is reduced, 53BP1 outcompetes BRCA1 at a break and the non-homologous end-joining tool repairs the break. This mechanism can help explain resistance to a promising chemotherapy called PARP inhibition seen in patients and mouse models with BRCA1 mutations. Work from several other research teams surprisingly has shown that if neither BRCA nor 53BP1 are available, then the homologous recombination system goes into action even in the absence of BRCA1 and BRCA1 mutant cancer cells become resistant to PARP inhibitors. Because of this, Greenberg says, there are some possible applications for making PARP chemotherapy more sensitive: If you could inhibit specific acetylation events, then a patients response to PARP inhibitors might be enhanced by hyperactivating 53BP1 binding to breaks in the context of BRCA1 deficient cancers. Whats more, measuring the levels of acetylation at H4 might predict how responsive an individual is to PARP inhibitors. The story didnt ...

Reversible acetylation of histone and non-histone proteins is one of the most abundant post-translational modifications in eukaryotic cells.

Statement of Research Interests. My research interests focus on the regulation of gene transcription in eukaryotic organisms, and the consequences of this regulation for downstream developmental events. In particular, I am interested in how factors such as covalent modifications of histones, chromatin structure/architecture, and gene organization may act and interact to influence gene expression.. Impact of histone acetylation on plant development. Background on HATs and Histone Acetylation. One area of current research investigates the biological role of the histone acetyltransferase (HAT) enzyme GCN5 in developmental pathways in the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana. GCN5 can covalently modify histones (chromatin proteins) by catalyzing the addition of acetyl group to specific lysine residues. This modification is hypothesized to affect histone-DNA contacts or provide binding sites for other factors involved in regulating transcription (the histone code hypothesis), but the exact biochemical ...
We have also investigated the potential roles of several signaling pathways, which could mediate apoptosis in the NPC cells upon treatment by bortezomib/SAHA. Bortezomib was found to potentiate SAHAs acetylation of histones H3 and H4 in the NPC cells. Furthermore, the histone acetylation was ROS- and caspase-8-dependent as both NAC- and caspase-8-specific inhibitor, Z-IETD-FMK, could markedly reduce the acetylation of the histones. The results were similar to the induction of caspase-8-dependent histone acetylation by combination of HDAC and proteasome inhibitors in leukemic cells (21). One of the major effects mediated by histone hyperacetylation is upregulation of tumor suppressor genes (9). However, we did not find any upregulation of retinoblastoma (Rb) or p53 in the bortezomib/SAHA-treated NPC cells (refer to Supplementary Fig. S2A). The p53 expression was repressed by the combination treatment in HA cells, whereas such repression was not found in C666-1 cells. Because enhanced apoptosis ...

The high resolution structure of acetyl lysine from acetylated cyclophilin (left) showing the experimental density. Right, Acetylated cyclophilin in complex with cyclosporine. Water molecules (blue spheres) that are ordered at the protein small molecule interface in the unacetylated complex) rearrange in the acetylated complex.. The acetylation of a cyclophilin at Lys125 was identified in a proteomics screen. We subsequently demonstrated that a substantial proportion of CYPA is acetylated in HeLa cells and human T cell lines, suggesting that the acetylated form of the protein is biologically relevant. To test this, recombinant CYPA bearing homogenous acetylation at Lys125 was prepared by overexpression in E. coli using an acetyllysyl-tRNA synthetase-tRNACUA pair, allowing detailed biophysical and enzymatic characterization of acetylated ...
p53 is the most well-characterized tumor suppressor, and its tumor-suppressive functions are dysregulated in more than 50% of human tumor tissues (29). The MDM2 oncogene is frequently amplified in many tumor tissues to functionally inactivate p53 (5), suggesting that inhibition of MDM2 activity might provide a robust method for cancer prevention. Previous studies have demonstrated that p300 cooperates with MDM2 and triggers p53 polyubiquitination as a ubiquitin E4 ligase (11, 30). Here, we propose a novel regulatory mechanism for p300 via acetylation-dependent control of the oncogenic function of MDM2. Specifically, p300 directly acetylates MDM2, a process that channels that E3 ligase activity away from MDM2 autoubiquitination to concentrate on promoting p53 ubiquitination, in part because of acetylation-induced alteration of intramolecular interaction of MDM2. Thus, p300 may regulate p53 ubiquitination through multiple regulatory mechanisms.. Furthermore, we identified that acetylation of MDM2 ...
Studies were next performed to define the molecular basis for HDAC3-mediated inhibition of TNF-α activation of NF-κB. Expression of HDAC3 in HeLa cells (∼50% transfection efficiency) diminished both NF-κB DNA-binding activity (Fig. 3C, panel 1) and levels of nuclear RelA (panel 4). In contrast, HDAC3 expression did not alter TNF-α-induced degradation of IκBα occurring in the cytoplasm (panel 3), nor did it markedly change the levels of Sp1 DNA-binding activity (panel 2). Together with the results presented in Fig. 1C, these findings raise the possibility that HDAC3 may regulate the intracellular trafficking of RelA. A precedent for acetylation influencing the intracellular trafficking of a transcription factor is provided by recent studies on hepatocyte nuclear factor-4 and class II transactivator (CIITA) (21, 22). To monitor potential effects of HDAC3 on the intracellular trafficking of RelA, we expressed green fluorescent protein-RelA fusion proteins (GFP-RelA) in HeLa cells in the ...
BioAssay record AID 632979 submitted by ChEMBL: Inhibition of HDAC4 in human HL60 cells assessed as increase in histone H4 acetylation at 1 ug/ml after 24 hrs by Western blot analysis.
Reversible acetylation of histone and nonhistone proteins plays pivotal role in cellular homeostasis. Dysfunction of histone acetyltransferases (HATs) leads to several diseases including cancer, neurodegenaration, asthma, diabetes, AIDS, and cardiac hypertrophy. We describe the synthesis and characterization of a set of p300-HAT-specific small-molecule inhibitors from a natural nonspecific HAT inhibitor, garcinol, which is highly toxic to cells. We show that the specific inhibitor selectively represses the p300-mediated acetylation of p53 in vivo. Furthermore, inhibition of p300-HAT down regulates several genes but significantly a few important genes are also upregulated. Remarkably, these inhibitors were found to be nontoxic to T cells, inhibit histone acetylation of HIV infected cells, and consequently inhibit the multiplication of HIV.. ...

Histone deacetylation and rDNA silencing.Transcriptionally silenced regions of eukaryotic genomes are generally hypoacetylated. In S. cerevisiae, the HM loci and telomeres are hypoacetylated on histones H3 and H4, with an acetylation pattern similar to that in higher eukaryotes (10). The yeast RPD3 gene product is the proposed catalytic component of a large multiprotein histone deacetylase complex (HDB) which acts in targeted transcriptional repression (40, 64). Sin3p, another subunit of HDB, acts to target the complex to specific Pol II promoters through association with specific DNA binding proteins (41). Sap30p is also a member of this complex (84). Paradoxically,rpd3 and sin3 mutations increase silencing atHM loci (77), telomeres (23, 64), and the rDNA (this study). Similarly, Drosophila TPE is enhanced by null mutations of its RPD3 homolog (23). In another study, sap30 mutants strengthened all types of silencing in yeast, including the rDNA (37). These findings were completely consistent ...
Histones are proteins in close contact with the DNA in the nucleus of a cell. They function to maintain the organization of DNA, and recent studies have shown that histones regulate the expression of genes. Histones can be modified by biochemical processes such as addition or removal of acetyl groups, known as acetylation and deacetylation. Such modifications have been shown to control genetic mechanisms important for memory storage in brain cells.. Ottavio Arancio, M.D. and colleagues studied mice that had been genetically altered to exhibit Alzheimer-like pathology. They found that long-term potentiation-a cellular model of memory formation in the brain-was reduced by drugs that prevent deacetylation of histones. Furthermore, acetylation of histones in these animals was greatly reduced after a behavioral training session in comparison to normal mice. They have proposed to extend these studies to examine whether impairments in histone acetylation or deacetylation are involved in the memory ...

Lysine acetylation is a major posttranslational modification involved in a broad array of physiological functions. Here, we provide an organ-wide map of lysine acetylation sites from 16 rat tissues analyzed by high-resolution tandem mass spectrometry. We quantify 15,474 modification sites on 4,541 proteins and provide the data set as a web-based database. We demonstrate that lysine acetylation displays site-specific sequence motifs that diverge between cellular compartments, with a significant fraction of nuclear sites conforming to the consensus motifs G-AcK and AcK-P. Our data set reveals that the subcellular acetylation distribution is tissue-type dependent and that acetylation targets tissue-specific pathways involved in fundamental physiological processes. We compare lysine acetylation patterns for rat as well as human skeletal muscle biopsies and demonstrate its general involvement in muscle contraction. Furthermore, we illustrate that acetylation of fructose-bisphosphate aldolase and ...
The role of formins in microtubules is not well understood. In this study, we have investigated the mechanism by which INF2, a formin mutated in degenerative renal and neurological hereditary disorders, controls microtubule acetylation. We found that silencing of INF2 in epithelial RPE-1 cells produced a dramatic drop in tubulin acetylation, increased the G-actin/F-actin ratio, and impaired myocardin-related transcription factor (MRTF)/serum response factor (SRF)-dependent transcription, which is known to be repressed by increased levels of G-actin. The effect on tubulin acetylation was caused by the almost complete absence of α-tubulin acetyltransferase 1 (α-TAT1) messenger RNA (mRNA). Activation of the MRTF-SRF transcriptional complex restored α-TAT1 mRNA levels and tubulin acetylation. Several functional MRTF-SRF-responsive elements were consistently identified in the α-TAT1 gene. The effect of INF2 silencing on microtubule acetylation was also observed in epithelial ECV304 cells, but not ...
In this study, we analyzed the equilibrium between histone acetylation, mediated by HATs, and histone deacetylation, mediated by HDACs, in the NAWM of chronic MS brains. Similar to what was reported for the old rodent brain, also in the NAWM of human brains from aged individuals and chronic MS patients we detected a shift toward acetylation. This shift toward acetylation detected in a subset of female patients correlated with the consistent and reproducible increase of several histone acetyltransferase family members, including CBP, P300, MYST3, and MYST4. It is worth noting that, although we also detected increased levels of HDAC11 in this subpopulation, the increased of the acetyltransferases was much greater and likely determined the shift in favor of increased acetylation. These differences were most prominent in a subset of female MS patients and were associated with high levels of developmentally regulated genes (i.e., TCF7L2, SOX2, ID2) compared with controls. Several other genes (i.e., ...
Sulfamethazine acetylation phenotype was determined in 49 patients with cancer of the colon or rectum, 41 old, and 45 young control subjects. Metabolic clearance of sulfamethazine, plasma ratio of N-acetylsulfamethazine:N-acetylsulfamethazine plus sulfamethazine and urinary ratio of N-acetylsulfamethazine:N-acetylsulfamethazine plus sulfamethazine were used to classify subjects into slow and fast acetylation phenotypes. All three measures gave similar results. The proportions of slow and fast acetylators were similar in both control groups and there were significantly more fast acetylators in the cancer group than in the control groups (ϰ2 = 5.0-8.5; P , 0.05). The data suggest that there may be an association between acetylation phenotype and colorectal carcinoma.. ...
Enoyl-coenzyme A hydratase/3-hydroxyacyl-coenzyme A (EHHADH) is an important enzyme which catalyze two steps in fatty acid oxidation. There are four acetylated lysine residues been identified in EHHADH, which are Lys165, Lys171, Lys346 and Lys584. Immunoprecipitation of ectopically expressed FLAG-tagged EHHADH and Western blotting with antibody to acetyllysine confirmed that EHHADH was indeed acetylated(Zhao, et al). In order to explore the effect of acetylation on fatty acid oxidation. Isobaric tags are used, which is TSA and NAM. TSA and NAM treatment increased all the four lysine residues acetylation. Consistently, corresponding unacetylated peptide was decreased. Scientists treat TSA and NAM to Chang Human Liver cells doubled the activity of EHHADH, which indicates that acetylation of EHHADH would increase fatty acid oxidation pathway. In order to confirm the result, site-directed mutagenesis was used and the four lysine residue was replaced by glutamine, TSA and NAM can no longer ...
Because increased mitophagic flux enhances yeast mitochondrial fidelity (Kurihara et al., 2012) and more efficient mitochondrial function might ameliorate redox stress injury, we explored whether GCN5L1 KD cells are stress resilient. GCN5L1 depletion decreased rotenone-induced reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation, susceptibility to ionomycin-induced mitochondrial permeability transition, and enhanced resistance to paraquat-induced cell death (Fig. 4D-F).. To begin exploring this biology in vivo, GCN5L1-knockout (KO) mice were generated, but these were not viable. However, KO MEFs were harvested and showed the same mitochondrially restricted reduction in protein acetylation (supplementary material Fig. S5A,B) and mitochondrial enrichment of autophagy mediators (Fig. 4G; supplementary material Fig. S5C) as found in the KD studies. In addition, the reconstitution of GCN5L1 in these KO MEFs restored mitochondrial acetylation and reversed the mitochondrial accumulation of p62 and LC3-II (Fig. 4H; ...

Previous work suggested a link between acetylation and phosphorylation, but questioned its mechanistic basis. We have purified a histone H3 serine-10 kinase complex from Saccharomyces cerevisiae and have identified its catalytic subunit as Snf1. The Snf1/AMPK family of kinases function in conserved signal transduction pathways. Our results show that Snf1 and the acetyltransferase Gcn5 function in an obligate sequence to enhance INO1 transcription by modifying histone H3 serine-10 and lysine-14. Thus, phosphorylation and acetylation are targeted to the same histone by promoter-specific regulation by a ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - βPix-d promotes tubulin acetylation and neurite outgrowth through a PAK/Stathmin1 signaling pathway. AU - Kwon, Younghee. AU - Jeon, Ye Won. AU - Kwon, Minjae. AU - Cho, Yongcheol. AU - Park, Dongeun. AU - Shin, Jung Eun. PY - 2020. Y1 - 2020. N2 - Microtubules are a major cytoskeletal component of neurites, and the regulation of microtubule stability is essential for neurite morphogenesis. βPix (ARHGEF7) is a guanine nucleotide exchange factor for the small GTPases Rac1 and Cdc42, which modulate the organization of actin filaments and microtubules. βPix is expressed as alternatively spliced variants, including the ubiquitous isoform βPix-a and the neuronal isoforms βPix-b and βPix-d, but the function of the neuronal isoforms remains unclear. Here, we reveal the novel role of βPix neuronal isoforms in regulating tubulin acetylation and neurite outgrowth. At DIV4, hippocampal neurons cultured from βPix neuronal isoform knockout (βPix-NIKO) mice exhibit defects in neurite ...
In chromosome translocations characteristic of Burkitt lymphomas (BL) and murine plasmacytomas, c-myc genes become juxtaposed to immunoglobulin heavy-chain (IgH) sequences, resulting in aberrant c-myc transcription. Translocated c-myc alleles that retain the first exon exhibit increased transcription from the normally minor c-myc promoter, P1, and increased transcriptional elongation through inherent pause sites proximal to the major c-myc promoter, P2, We recently demonstrated that a cassette derived from four DNase I-hypersensitive sites (HS1234) in the 3C alpha region of the IgH locus functions as an enhancer-locus control region (LCR) and directs a similar pattern of deregulated expression of linked c-myc genes in BL and plasmacytoma cell lines. Here, we report that the HS1234 enhancer-LCR mediates a widespread increase in histone acetylation along linked c-myc genes in Raji BL cells. Significantly, the increase in acetylation was not restricted to nucleosomes within the promoter region but ...
Transcription in eukaryotes occurs in the context of DNA packaged into chromatin. The basic unit of chromatin is the nucleosome, in which DNA is wrapped around the core histones H2A, H2B, H3, and H4. Nucleosome remodeling complexes such as Swi-Snf can facilitate opening of repressive chromatin structures in promoter regions to provide access for DNA-binding activator proteins or general transcription factors (32). In addition, reversible chromatin modifications such as acetylation, phosphorylation, and methylation of N-terminal histone tails can modulate accessibility of DNA within chromatin (56). Acetylation of lysines in the histone tails neutralizes their positive charge, thereby weakening electrostatic interactions with DNA (25) and interactions between neighboring nucleosomes (42). The tails of histones H3 and H4 are important for transcriptional regulation of numerous genes, because mutations in these histone tails result in both derepression and diminished activation (15, 44). ...
TY - CHAP. T1 - Creating a pro-survival and anti-inflammatory phenotype by modulation of acetylation in models of hemorrhagic and septic shock. AU - Li, Yongqing. AU - Alam, Hasan B.. N1 - Copyright: Copyright 2012 Elsevier B.V., All rights reserved.. PY - 2012. Y1 - 2012. N2 - Shock, regardless of etiology, is characterized by decreased tissue perfusion resulting in cell death, organ dysfunction, and poor survival. Current therapies largely focus on restoring tissue perfusion through resuscitation but have failed to address the specific cellular dysfunction caused by shock. Acetylation is rapidly emerging as a key mechanism that regulates the expression of numerous genes (epigenetic modulation through activation of nuclear histone proteins), as well as functions of multiple cytoplasmic proteins involved in key cellular functions such as cell survival, repair/healing, signaling, and proliferation. Cellular acetylation can be increased immediately through the administration of histone deacetylase ...
Aspergillus oryzae is ubiquitous filamentous fungi in nature and has been used in a number of industries such as Japanese traditional fermented foods and pharmaceutical products. In nature and industries, A. oryzae adapt to various environmental conditions by global change of transcriptional regulation. In the previous study, we revealed that the expression of histone acetylation related genes were affected by the growth phase and alteration of growing environment, such as culture conditions and stress exposing. In general, histone acetylation plays the fundamental roles for the genes expression, and closely relates to growth, morphology, differentiation and stress responses. Recently, several reports indicate that histone acetylation also plays important roles in filamentous fungi. In this context, we focused on histone acetylation related genes, particularly histone deacetylases (HDACs). We attempted to disrupt 11 HDACs homologue of A. oryzae and 10 of them were disrupted. However, in the ...

The accessibility of regulatory elements in chromatin represents a principal rate-limiting parameter of gene transcription and is modulated by enzymatic transcriptional co-factors that alter the topology of chromatin or covalently modify histones (e.g. by acetylation). The bone-specific activation and 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D(3) enhancement of osteocalcin (OC) gene transcription are both functionally linked to modifications in nucleosomal organization. The initiation of tissue-specific basal transcription is accompanied by the induction of two DNase I hypersensitive sites, and this chromatin remodeling event requires binding of the key osteogenic factor RUNX2/CBFA1 to the OC promoter. Here, we analyzed the acetylation status of histones H3 and H4 when the OC gene is active (in osteoblastic ROS17/2.8 cells) or inactive (in fibroblastic ROS24/1 cells) using chromatin immunoprecipitation assays. We find that acetylated histone H3 and H4 proteins are associated with the OC promoter only when the gene is
Epigenetic deregulation, such as the reduction of histone acetylation levels, is thought to be causally linked to various maladies associated with aging. Consequently, histone deacetylase inhibitors are suggested to serve as epigenetic therapy by increasing histone acetylation. However, previous work suggests that many non-histone proteins, including metabolic enzymes, are also acetylated and that post transitional modifications may impact their activity. Furthermore, deacetylase inhibitors were recently shown to impact the acetylation of a variety of proteins. By utilizing a novel technique to measure oxygen consumption rate from whole living tissue, we demonstrate that treatment of whole living fly heads by the HDAC/KDAC inhibitors sodium butyrate and Trichostatin A, induces a rapid and transient increase of oxygen consumption rate. In addition, our study indicates that the rate increase is markedly attenuated in midlife fly head tissue. Overall, our data suggest that HDAC/KDAC inhibitors may induce
Histone lysine acetylation is central to epigenetic control of gene transcription. Bromodomains of chromosomal proteins function as acetyl-lysine (Kac) binding domains. However, how bromodomains recognize site-specific histones remains unanswered. Here, we report three three-dimensional solution structures of the bromodomains of the human transcriptional coactivators CREB-binding protein (CBP) and p300/CBP-associated factor (PCAF) bound to peptides derived from histone acetylation sites at lysines 36 and 9 in H3, and lysine 20 in H4. From structural and biochemical binding analyses, we determine consensus histone recognition by the bromodomains of PCAF and CBP, which represent two different subgroups of the bromodomain family. Through bromodomain residues in the ZA and BC loops, PCAF prefers acetylation sites with a hydrophobic residue at (Kac+2) position and a positively charged or aromatic residue at (Kac+3), whereas CBP favors bulky hydrophobic residues at (Kac+1) and (Kac+2), a positively ...
A global view of all core histones in yeast is provided by tandem mass spectrometry of intact histones H2A, H2B, H4, and H3. This allowed detailed characterization of ,50 distinct histone forms and their semiquantitative assessment in the deletion mutants gcn5Delta, spt7Delta, ahc1Delta, and rtg2Delta, affecting the chromatin remodeling complexes SAGA, SLIK, and ADA. The top down mass spectrometry approach detected dramatic decreases in acetylation on H3 and H2B in gcn5Delta cells versus wild type. For H3 in wild type cells, tandem mass spectrometry revealed a direct correlation between increases of Lys(4) trimethylation and the 0, 1, 2, and 3 acetylation states of histone H3. The results show a wide swing from 10 to 80% Lys(4) trimethylation levels on those H3 tails harboring 0 or 3 acetylations, respectively. Reciprocity between these chromatin marks was apparent, since gcn5Delta cells showed a 30% decrease in trimethylation levels on Lys(4) in addition to a decrease of acetylation levels on ...

We detected chromatin regions with differential acetylation activity (DARs; Padj. , 0.05) between remodeled non-failing patient hearts and healthy donor hearts. The acetylation level of the chromatin region correlated with its RNA polymerase II occupancy level and the mRNA expression level of its adjacent gene per sample. Annotated genes from DARs were enriched in disease-related pathways, including fibrosis and cell metabolism regulation. DARs that change in the same direction have a tendency to cluster together, suggesting the well-reorganized chromatin architecture that facilitates the interactions of regulatory domains in response to myocardial remodeling. We further show the differences between the acetylation level and the mRNA expression level of cell-type-specific markers for cardiomyocytes and 11 non-myocyte cell types. Notably, we identified transcriptome factor (TF) binding motifs that were enriched in DARs and defined TFs that were predicted to bind to these motifs. We further showed ...

AU - Nephew, Kenneth P.. PY - 2005. Y1 - 2005. N2 - To fully elucidate the functional relationship between DNA methylation and histone hypoacetylation in gene silencing, we have developed an integrated triple microarray system that allows us to begin to decipher the influence of epigenetic hierarchies on the regulation of gene expression in cancer cells. Our hypothesis is that in the promoter region of a silenced gene, reversal of two epigenetic factors (i.e., DNA demethylation and/or histone hyperacetylation) is highly correlated with gene reexpression after treatment of the human epithelial ovarian cancer cell line CP70 with the drug combination 5-aza-2′-deoxycytidine (DAC), a demethylating agent, and trichostatin A (TSA), an inhibitor of histone deacetylases. To estimate the posterior ...
Changes in chromatin structure play a large role in the regulation of transcription in eukaryotes (1). The nucleosome is the primary building block of chromatin, and is made up of four core histone proteins (H2A, H2B, H3 and H4) (2). Acetylation of core histones regulates gene expression (2). Histone H3 is primarily acetylated at lysines 9, 14, 18, and 23 (3,4). Acetylation at lysine 9 appears to have a dominant role in histone deposition and chromatin assembly in some organisms (3,4). Phosphorylation at Ser10 of histone H3 is tightly correlated with chromosome condensation during both mitosis and meiosis (5 ...
Several studies have recently reported that chromatin-modifying mechanisms are involved in learning and memory processes in adult neurons.3,5,35 For example, Levenson et al.35 showed that whereas histone H3 was acetylated following contextual FC in the hippocampus, histone H4 was acetylated following a latent inhibition protocol for contextual FC. Lubin et al.3 investigated histone modifications at specific BDNF promoters after contextual FC. They observed a selective increase in histone H3 acetylation at the BDNF gene promoter of exon IV, and a selective decrease in histone H4 acetylation at the BDNF promoter of exon II. In our study, SPS rats demonstrated a significant increase relative to sham rats in the levels of acetylated H3 and H4 at BDNF promoters of exons I and IV after FC. In addition, this selective increase in histone acetylation at the promoters of exons I and IV were consistent with up-regulation in exon I and IV mRNA transcription associated with FC. Interestingly, there were no ...
Histone acetylation plays an important role in chromatin remodeling and gene expression. The molecular mechanisms involved in cell-specific expression of endothelial nitric-oxide synthase ( eNOS) are not fully understood. In this study we investigated whether histone deacetylation was involved in repression of eNOS expression in non-endothelial cells. Induction of eNOS expression by histone deacetylase ( HDAC) inhibitors trichostatin A (TSA) and sodium butyrate was observed in all four different types of non-endothelial cells examined. Chromatin immunoprecipitation assays showed that the induction of eNOS expression by TSA was accompanied by a remarkable increase of acetylation of histone H3 associated with the eNOS 5′-flanking region in the non-endothelial cells. Moreover, DNA methylation-mediated repression of eNOS promoter activity was partially reversed by TSA treatment, and combined treatment of TSA and 5-aza-2′-deoxycytidine (AzadC) synergistically induced eNOS expression in ...

AU - Prokai, Laszlo. AU - Ryu, Youngha. PY - 2012/9/1. Y1 - 2012/9/1. N2 - A fluorogenic derivatization method was developed to distinguish the protein N-terminal acetylation status. The unacetylated protein selectively reacted with 4-chloro-7-nitrobenzofurazan (NBD-Cl) at neutral pH to provide high fluorescence. In contrast, the protein with N-terminal acetylation was essentially nonfluorescent under the same conditions despite the presence of many internal lysine residues. Fluorescence of the NBD-labeled protein was very stable, and only micromolar concentrations of proteins were required for reliable detection. This method also provides a general and practical way to quantify proteins when their N-terminal amino group is available.. AB - A fluorogenic derivatization method was developed to distinguish ...
Research Interests. We have been interested in a family of enzymes named histone deacetylase (HDAC), which catalyzes the deacetylation of the acetyl lysine residue on histone tails. There are 18 members of human HDAC which can be divided into four classes. Class I, II and IV HDACs require zinc metal whereas Class III HDACs, which are named sirtuins, are NAD-dependent. Counteracting histone acetyltransferase (HAT), HDAC controls the histone acetylation level, structural modification of chromatin, and subsequent regulation of genes that are implicated in cell growth, proliferation, and differentiation. Furthermore, many non-histone proteins have been identified as HDAC substrates. Numerous studies have demonstrated that inhibitions of HDAC offer therapeutic benefits.. Research Projects. Applying the principles of fragment- and structure-based drug design, we are currently investigating novel structural templates for the discovery of sirtuin inhibitors. Our strategy is to design, synthesize and ...

Chromatin remodeling at promoters of activated genes spans from mild histone modifications to outright displacement of nucleosomes in trans. Factors affecting these events are not always clear. Our results indicate that histone H3 acetylation associated with histone displacement differs drastically even between promoters of such closely related heat shock genes as HSP12, SSA4, and HSP82. The HSP12 promoter, with the highest level of histone displacement, showed the highest level of H3 acetylation, while the SSA4 promoter, with a lower histone displacement, showed only modest H3 acetylation. Moreover, for the HSP12 promoter, the level of acetylated H3 is temporarily increased prior to nucleosome departure. Individual promoters in strains expressing truncated versions of heat shock factor (HSF) showed that deletion of either one of two activating regions in HSF led to the diminished histone displacement and correspondingly lower H3 acetylation. The deletion of both regions simultaneously severely
Histone acetyltransferase which may be involved in transcriptional activation. May influence the function of ATM. As part of the MSL complex it is involved in acetylation of nucleosomal histone H4 producing specifically H4K16ac. As part of the NSL complex it may be involved in acetylation of nucleosomal histone H4 on several lysine residues. That activity is less specific than the one of the MSL complex. Can also acetylate TP53/p53 at Lys-120.

Component of the HBO1 complex which has a histone H4-specific acetyltransferase activity, a reduced activity toward histone H3 and is responsible for the bulk of histone H4 acetylation in vivo. Involved in H3K14 (histone H3 lysine 14) acetylation and cell proliferation. Through chromatin acetylation it may regulate DNA replication and act as a coactivator of TP53-dependent transcription. Acts as a coactivator of the licensing factor CDT1. Specifically represses AR-mediated transcription.

Crystalline 60 per cent active acetyl pepsin has 7 acetyl groups per mol of pepsin, 3 of which are readily hydrolyzed in acid at pH 0.0 or in weak alkali at pH 10.0.. The tyrosine-tryptophane content of this acetylated pepsin, measured colorimetrically, is less than pepsin by three tyrosine equivalents.. Hydrolysis at pH 0.0 or pH 10.0 of the 3 acetyl groups results in a concomitant increase in the number of tyrosine equivalents. In the pH 0.0 hydrolysis experiment there is also a simultaneous increase in specific activity.. The phenol group of glycyl tyrosine is acetylated by ketene under the conditions used in the acetylation of pepsin and the effect of pH on the rate of acetylation is similar in the two cases.. It is concluded that the acetyl groups in the 60 per cent active acetyl pepsin, which are responsible for the decrease in specific enzymatic activity, are 3 in number and are attached to 3 tyrosine phenol groups of the pepsin molecule.. ...
Parkinsons disease (PD) is amultifactorial neurodegenerative disorder. The pathogenesis of this disease is associated with gene and environmental factors. Mutations in leucine-rich repeat kinase 2 (LRRK2) are the most frequent genetic cause of familial and sporadic PD. Moreover, posttranslational modifications, including protein acetylation, are involved in the molecular mechanism of PD. Acetylation of lysine proteins is a dynamic process that ismodulated in PD. In this descriptive study, we characterized the acetylated proteins and peptides in primary fibroblasts from idiopathic PD (IPD) and genetic PD harboring G2019S or R1441G LRRK2 mutations. Identified acetylated peptides are modulated between individuals groups. Although acetylated nuclear proteins are the most represented in cells, they are hypoacetylated in IPD. Results display that the level of hyperacetylated and hypoacetylated peptides are, respectively, enhanced in genetic PD and in IPD cells ...
The tumor-suppressor function of p53 relies on its transcriptional activity, which is modulated by post-translational modifications and interactions with regulatory proteins. The prolyl isomerase Pin1 has a central role in transducing phosphorylation of p53 into conformational changes that affect p53 stability and function. We found that Pin1 is required for efficient loading of p53 on target promoters upon stress. In addition, Pin1 is recruited to chromatin by p53 and stimulates binding of the p300 acetyltransferase and consequent p53 acetylation. Accordingly, tumor-associated mutations at Pin1-binding residues within the p53 proline-rich domain hamper acetylation of p53 by p300. After phosphorylation of p53 at Ser46 triggered by cytotoxic stimuli, Pin1 also mediates p53s dissociation from the apoptosis inhibitor iASPP, promoting cell death. In tumors bearing wild-type p53, expression of Pin1 and iASPP are inversely correlated, supporting the clinical relevance of these interactions.
AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK), a biologic sensor for cellular energy status, has been shown to act upstream and downstream of known tumor suppressors. However, whether AMPK itself plays a tumor suppressor role in cancer remains unclear. Here, we found that the a2 catalytic subunit isoform of AMPK is significantly downregulated in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Clinicopathologic analysis revealed that underexpression of AMPK-a2 was statistically associated with an undifferentiated cellular phenotype and poor patient prognosis. Loss of AMPK-a2 in HCC cells rendered them more tumorigenic than control cells both in vitro and in vivo. Mechanistically, ectopic expression of AMPK enhanced the acetylation and stability of p53 in HCC cells. The p53 deacetylase, SIRT1, was phosphorylated and inactivated by AMPK at Thr344, promoting p53 acetylation and apoptosis of HCC cells. Taken together, our findings suggest that underexpression of AMPK is frequently observed in HCC, and that inactivation of ...
Breast tumor recurrence and metastasis represent the main causes of cancer-related death in women, and treatments are still lacking. Here, we define the lipogenic enzyme acetyl-CoA carboxylase (ACC) 1 as a key player in breast cancer metastasis. ACC1 phosphorylation was increased in invading cells both in murine and human breast cancer, serving as a point of convergence for leptin and transforming growth factor (TGF) β signaling. ACC1 phosphorylation was mediated by TGFβ-activated kinase (TAK) 1, and ACC1 inhibition was indispensable for the elevation of cellular acetyl-CoA, the subsequent increase in Smad2 transcription factor acetylation and activation, and ultimately epithelial-mesenchymal transition and metastasis induction. ACC1 deficiency worsened tumor recurrence upon primary tumor resection in mice, and ACC1 phosphorylation levels correlated with metastatic potential in breast and lung cancer patients. Given the demonstrated effectiveness of anti-leptin receptor antibody treatment in ...
Based on our discoveries, we propose a model for Gcn5 regulation of T cell activation: when stimulated by specific Ags, TCR signaling induces the nuclear translocation of NFAT. NFAT then binds to and recruits Gcn5 to the il-2 promoter, where it promotes H3K9 acetylation to activate il-2 gene transcription. Suppression of Gcn5 functions inhibits T cell activation, suggesting that Gcn5 may provide a potential therapeutic target for treatment of autoimmune disease. Therefore, GCN5 is a positive regulator of T cell activation and CD4 T cell differentiation into Th1 and Th17. This conclusion is supported by the following observations: 1) the targeted Gcn5 deletion specifically in T cells partially blocks T cell development at the stage from DN2 to DN3 transition; 2) loss of Gcn5 function attenuates T cell activation in vitro and in vivo; 3) Gcn5 is recruited onto the il-2 promoter through NFAT interaction to modify H3K9 acetylation; and 4) T cell-specific Gcn5 gene deletion largely protects mice from ...

Histone acetylation along with DNA methylation is the main epigenetic process that influences nociceptive gene expression in pain states identified to this point. Transcription-restrictive heterochromatin is converted to transcription-permissive euchromatin by histone acetylation and results in enhanced gene expression. Recently, several pain-related chemokine receptors and its relevant ligands are demonstrated to be epigenetically regulated via histone acetylation.13,44-46 The chemokine CCL2/monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 was shown separately to contribute to mechanical sensitization after surgical incision.45 Likewise, CXCR2 was of particular interest to us as this gene has been linked to nociceptive sensitization in several other studies.13,18,19 In the current study, we showed that both CXCR2 and its ligand KC were significantly increased in spinal cord tissue after incision when histone deacetylation was blocked. Furthermore, the relevant population of CXCR2 receptors probably resides ...

  • How Does Lamin A/C Acetylation Contribute to Nuclear Architecture? (activemotif.com)
  • Obese animals contained lower liver preneoplastic lesions as well as liver weight as a result of higher amounts of vitamin B6, had significantly higher H3 acetylation at K9 and K14 and H4 acetylation at K5, in both homogenate and nuclear fractions. (uwaterloo.ca)
  • Nevertheless, global histone H3 and H4 acetylation in both homogenate and nuclear fractions, was slightly higher in the lean rats and obese rats fed higher amounts of B6. (uwaterloo.ca)
  • Because nutrient-sensing nuclear and cytosolic acetylation mediates cellular autophagy, we investigated whether mitochondrial acetylation modulates mitochondrial autophagy (mitophagy). (biologists.org)
  • The mcl1-101 mutation causes reduced CENP-A(Cnp1) in the central domain and an aberrant increase in histone acetylation in both domains.Mcl1 forms S-phase-specific nuclear foci, which colocalize with those of PCNA and Pol alpha.These results suggest that Mcl1 and Pol alpha are required for propagation of centromere chromatin structures during DNA replication.

  • Here, we show that NAA80 does not associate with filamentous actin in cells, and its natural substrate is the monomeric actin-profilin complex, consistent with Nt-acetylation preceding polymerization. (uib.no)
  • NAA80 Nt-acetylates actin-profilin much more efficiently than actin alone, suggesting that profilin acts as a chaperone for actin Nt-acetylation. (uib.no)
  • This study was conducted to determine whether the slow acetylation phenotype is associated with an increased risk of hypersensitivity to TMP-SMX in patients with HIV infection. (ovid.com)
  • Of the 28 HIV-infected subjects, 20 (71%) expressed a slow acetylation phenotype and eight (29%) a fast phenotype. (ovid.com)
  • Of the 16 HIV-infected subjects with prior TMP-SMX hypersensitivity, 15 (94%) had a slow acetylation phenotype, whereas only five out of 12 (42%) non-hypersensitive subjects had a slow acetylation phenotype (P>0.01). (ovid.com)
  • A slow acetylation phenotype is a risk factor for hypersensitivity to TMP-SMX in HIV-infected subjects. (ovid.com)
  • Both RWA clades regulate wood xylan acetylation in aspen and are promising targets to improve wood saccharification. (diva-portal.org)
  • In this study, we have investigated the mechanism by which INF2, a formin mutated in degenerative renal and neurological hereditary disorders, controls microtubule acetylation. (rupress.org)
  • The effect of INF2 silencing on microtubule acetylation was also observed in epithelial ECV304 cells, but not in Jurkat T cells. (rupress.org)
  • Although seminal discoveries have been made in the basic biology of mitochondrial acetylation, an understanding of how acetylation states influence enzyme function and metabolic reprogramming during pathological states remains largely unknown. (hindawi.com)
  • The implications of mitochondrial acetylation for the aging process will be discussed, as well as its potential implications for the unique and localized metabolic states that occur during the aging-associated conditions of heart failure and cancer growth. (hindawi.com)
  • We then suggest a role for alterations in mitochondrial acetylation states during age-related conditions of heart failure and cancer, as well as review its potential role in human longevity. (hindawi.com)
