"Novel Dual Regulation of L1 retrotransposon by PLZF"

Regulation of cell-specific patterns by epigenetic mechanisms is critical and has been associated with the organization of DNA methylation regions (DMR) in order to regulate stem cell homeostasis and genome protection. We developed two mouse models of PLZF acetylation mutants and identified differentially DNA methylation regions (DMR). PLZF-associated DMRs, contain repeat elements including non-LTR (LINE, SINE/Alu) and LTR (ERV and MaLR) transposons. PLZF binds specifically these repeats through a conserved DNA binding site and induces repression of the active retrotransposons by specifically targeting HDAC and DNMT activities but also initiate the formation of insulator-like boundaries interacting with truncated LINE sequences often located in intronic coding sequences. We wish to investigate more closely the implications of the PLZF-LINE interaction and its implication in the maintenance and safeguarding of adult progenitors and pursue the characterization of other identified DMRs to understand PLZF-associated DMRs implication in genome regulation, both at the transcriptional, chromatin organization and genome integrity levels.
