Precise regulation of gene expression is required for embryonic stem cell (ESC) differentiation. Transcription factor (TF) networks coordinate the balance of pluripotency and differentiation in response to extracellular and intracellular signals. Chromatin factors work alongside TFs to achieve timely regulation of gene expression for differentiation process. Our previous studies showed that a member of the Sin3a corepressor complex, Arid4b, is critical for proper mouse ESC differentiation into mesoderm and endoderm. We found elevated histone 3 lysine 27 acetylation (H3K27Ac) in a subset of genomic loci in meso/endoderm directed arid4b. cells, coincident with their derepression. We reasoned that Sin3a complex may be required for the suppression of these genes during differentiation. To identify TFs that might cooperate with Arid4b for this function, we found consensus TF binding sequences enriched in H3K27Ac elevated regions in arid4b. cells. Of these candidate TFs, we validated expression of Bach1, Ddit3, Prrx2, Znf354c and Tfap2c in mESCs. We then demonstrated a physical interaction between Arid4b and Tfap2c in mESCs using endogenous coimmunoprecipitation and proximity ligation assay experiments. Our results point to a role of Arid4b in the Sin3a complex in repression of a subset of Tfap2cregulated genes during meso/endoderm differentiation.

Arid4b alters cell cycle and cell death dynamics during mouse embryonic stem cell differentiation.
Güven, Gözde; Terzi Çizmecioğlu, Nihal (2021-02-09)
Cell division and death play an important role in embryonic development. Cell specialization is accompanied with slow proliferation and quiescence. Cell death is important for morphogenesis. Gene expression changes during differentiation is coordinated by lineage-specific transcription factors and chromatin factors. It is not yet fully understood how alterations in gene expression and cell cycle/death mechanisms are connected. We previously identified a chromatin protein Arid4b as a critical factor for meso...
ARID3B expression in primary breast cancers and breast cancer-derived cell lines

ARID3B (AT-rich interaction domain 3) is a member of the family of ARID proteins, which constitutes evolutionarily conserved transcription factors implicated in normal development, differentiation, cell cycle regulation and chromatin remodeling. In addition, ARID3B has been linked to cellular immortalization, epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) and tumorigenesis. Given the emerging role of ARID3B in tumor development, we examined its expression in primary patient-derived breast cancer samples and breast...

Identification of transcription factors that interact with Arid4b protein in mouse embryonic stem cells
Keskin, Ezgi Gül; Terzi Çizmecioğlu, Nihal; Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics (2019)
Embryonic development is a process that is highly regulated at the level of gene expression. Throughout this process, the zygote divides and differentiates to form all cell types in the adult body. In the early stages of development, pluripotent embryonic stem cells (ESC) can be isolated and used to study cell fate mechanisms during development in vitro. The pluripotency of ESCs is governed by certain transcription factors (TF) (Oct4, Nanog, etc.). These TFs construct a transcription network specific to ESC...
Square prism micropillars on poly(methyl methacrylate) surfaces modulate the morphology and differentiation of human dental pulp mesenchymal stem cells

Use of soluble factors is the most common strategy to induce osteogenic differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) in vitro, but it may raise potential side effects in vivo. The topographies of the substrate surfaces affect cell behavior, and this could be a promising approach to guide stem cell differentiation. Micropillars have been reported to modulate cellular and subcellular shape, and it is particularly interesting to investigate whether these changes in cell morphology can modulate gene express...
