  • Visualizing this primary structure nucleosomal arraysPartial nuclease digestion generates mono, di, trinucleosomes

  • How is chromatin assembly achieved?

  • What is in the extract?

    Histone chaperones

  • Histone chaperonesnegatively charged proteinshelp assembly; prevent aggregation

    NAP1 H2A/H2BNuclear Import, nucleosomedisruption, histone variant incorporation

    nucleoplasmin H2A/H2BStorage, sperm histone exchange

  • CAF-1Chromatin assembly factor 1More histone chaperones

  • Replication-coupled chromatin assembly factorCAF-1 (identified in yeast; Bruce Stillman lab)

    brings H3/H4 onto newly synthesized DNA

    CAF-13 subunits:p150 (Cac1) binds PCNA p60(Cac2) binds ASF1p48(Cac3) binds histones histone bindingin many complexesRolesnucleosome deposition after replicationheterochromatin maintenance

  • Role of PCNA in chromatin assembly?1. Adenine deficient yeast are red2. Move Adenine biosynthesis gene into heterochromatin inactive; red colonies3. Mutagenize strain4. improper heterochromatin assembly in PCNA mutants causes Adenine biosynthesis gene reactivation; more whitish coloniesActivation of Ade in telomeric heterochromatin in PCNA mutantsPCNA connects DNA replication to epigenetic inheritance in yeastZhiguo Zhang, Kei-ichi Shibahara* & Bruce Stillman*NATURE | VOL 408 | 9 NOVEMBER 2000 |Ade -Ade +PCNA wtPCNA mutant

  • PCNA coordinates: DNA synthesis (processivity)Chromatin assemblyRepairMethylation Epigenetic InheritanceCell-cycle control

  • Parental nucleosome segregation (hatched)

    De novo nucleosome assembly (unhatched)

  • New nucleosome formationafter replication1 H3/H4 tetramer OR 2 H3/H4 dimers bind DNA2 dimers H2A/H2B bind H3/H4 tetramer

    DNA first very reactive with histones, then matures

    Nucleosome deposition is essentialif repressed, DNA will be duplicated but cell cycle arrest in G2Histone synthesis occurs at G1/S

  • Newly synthesized histones have acetylated tails cytoplasmic (B-type) HAT: HAT1 HAT: histone acetyltransferase

    pattern of acetylation differs from acetylation involved in gene regulation Modifications on H4: H4K5ac, H4K12ac

    modifications lost after incorporation (HDAC, histone deacetylase)

  • These modifications are important reduced viability in yeast if mutatedRole:Nuclear importBinding/Deposition by histone chaperoneChromatin maturation

    Mark the histone as newly synthesized for chromatinassembly

    Modifications are rapidly removed after assembly

  • ASF1

    acts together with CAF1, interacts with CAC2 subunit

    interacts with HAT1 complex

    interacts with MCM helicase

  • Role of ASF1:generates H3 H4 dimer

    prevents tetramer formationbreaks up tetramerspresents H3/H4 dimer to CAF1

    also role in H3K56ac by Rtt109

  • Ransom et al., Cell, 2010

  • Another histone chaperoneRtt106

    interacts with CAF1 complex

    involved in H3/H4 assembly during replication

    high affinity for H3K56ac (as does CAF1)

  • Open questions

    H3/H4 assembled as tetramer or as dimer?H2A/H2B chaperone?how are the parental histones incorporated?how are the chromatin marks copied?

    Epigenetic memory

  • Epigenetic Memory

  • Hypothesis 1: H3H4 dimers are incorporatedcan copy modifications, variantsintramolecular

    Hypothesis 2A: H3 H4 tetramers are incorporatedrepressive marks are defaultactivating marks incorporated during RI assembly variants

  • Copy modification by recruiting the enzyme that makes the modificationto this same modification(Intermolecular)Hypothesis 2

  • DNA methylation (DNMT1) interacts with PCNA
