     在绝大多数细胞中,DNA的损害将触发"感应器"中断细胞的活动,直至DNA的损害获得了修复。生发中心细胞能产生抗体,在一组选择出来的名为生发中心细胞的B细胞组中,Ari Melnick和同事发现蛋白质Bcl—6能阻止DNA损伤感应器ATR的产生。在这组B细胞中,Bcl—6有益于受到外来抗原侵袭,并在抗原编码的基因中经历DNA严重变异的B细胞,通常情况下,这一过程需要产生高效的抗体。然而,这种DNA变异却导致生发中心B细胞的死亡,从而间接减少了了有用抗体的产生。
    Melnick小组的研究显示,Bcl—6能抑制ATR基因的活性,这种基因能有效地关闭DNA损害感应器的机制,导致生发中心B细胞不再倾向于DAN损失所引导的死亡。而且,许多B细胞淋巴瘤显示,解除管制的Bcl—6能表达和容忍过度的DNA变异,包括由辐射治疗引发的变异。
    这项新研究推测,淋巴瘤细胞中Bcl—6的变异可能会让它们对辐射更敏感。

The Role of Chromatin Remodeling and Epigenetics in Hematopoiesis and Hematologic Malignancies

Overview: We are interested in molecular mechanisms that direct gene expression during the development of normal and malignant blood cells. We focus in particular on silencing mechanisms used by transcription factors that play master regulatory roles in these processes. The ordered repression of certain genes is as important for cell differentiation and proliferation as is the process of gene activation, yet far less is known about these silencing mechanisms. In general, mechanisms of transcriptional repression are highly complex and involve multiple effects on chromatin. Such effects include modifications of histone tails by methylation and acetylation, remodeling of nucleosomes by helicases and direct methylation of DNA. Furthermore, regulatory proteins form chromatin-associated complexes that directly shut down gene expression. All of these events are coordinated by binding of sequence-specific transcriptional repressors to their target DNA, in response to multiple signaling and developmental pathways. BTB transcription factors: A major class of transcriptional repressor proteins involved in hematopoiesis is characterized by the presence of an N-terminal BTB/POZ domain. We found that the BTB domain was required for both dimerization and transcriptional repression by these proteins. In a detailed structure function analysis we observed that the repression, dimerization and oligomerization could be mapped to different regions of the BTB domain. We found that the repression motif of the BTB domain directly recruits co-repressor proteins that serve as a scaffold for histone deacetylases (HDACs). In the absence of this motif, proteins that play important roles in leukemias and lymphomas such as PLZF and Bcl-6 fail to repress their target genes and fail to mediate their biological effects. On the basis of these results, and in collaboration with structural biology colleagues, we are using crystallographic analysis coupled with molecular biology techniques, to develop a novel form of specific therapy for cancers where BTB proteins play a prominent role. Transcriptional repression and common pathways of aberrant gene expression in hematologic malignancies: Hematologic malignancies are characterized by an extensive number of nonrandom mutations. Such mutations most often lead to de-regulation of transcription factors that lead to aberrant patterns of gene expression and malignancy transformation. The large number of these mutations makes a concerted approach towards these diseases difficult. We hypothesize however that many of these targeted transcription factors might in fact be part of common complexes. This is in fact the case since we found that the ETO protein involved in the M2 form of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is part of repression complex by the PLZF protein that is involved in the M3 form of AML. In fact, ETO enhances the repression effects of PLZF through recruitment of histone deacetylases. Interestingly, the fusion protein of ETO with AML-1, which is characteristic of AML with the 8;21 translocation, acts as a dominant anti-corepressor that abrogates PLZF repression. In this way, leukemia cells that express this fusion protein are able to escape the growth suppressive effects of PLZF and grow indefinitely. We are currently exploring the interactions of several other leukemia and lymphoma oncoproteins. These studies are allowing us to define networks of hematopoietic transcription factor networks in blood development and differentiation, as well as opportunities for molecular targeted therapeutics. Chromatin, epigenetics and leukemia: Recent data indicate that covalent modifications of nucleosomal histone tails regulate the transcriptional status of gene expression. These changes, along with alterations in the relationship between DNA and core histones mediated by chromatin remodeling machines, are coordinated by DNA binding transcription factors. We are interested in how these different machineries and their effects are choreographed by transcriptional factors such as the BTB family of repressors mentioned above. To this end we are establishing in vitro models of these regulatory events using chromatinized templates and correlating these findings in appropriate vivo systems. The combination of the approaches outlined in these paragraphs are designed to collectively facilitate a comprehensive analysis of gene silencing and contribute to the understanding of normal and malignant hematopoiesis.
