Title Warming Induces Significant Reprogramming of Beige, but Not Brown, Adipocyte Cellular Identity
Organism Mus musculus
Experiment type Expression profiling by high throughput sequencing
Genome binding/occupancy profiling by high throughput sequencing
Summary Beige and brown adipocytes generate heat in response to reductions in ambient temperature. When warmed, both beige and brown adipocytes exhibit morphological ‘whitening’, but it is unknown whether or to what extent this represents a true shift in cellular identity. Using cell type-specific profiling in vivo, we uncover a unique paradigm of temperature-dependent epigenomic plasticity of beige, but not brown, adipocytes, with conversion from a brown to a white chromatin state. Despite this profound shift in cellular identity, warm whitened beige adipocytes retain an epigenomic memory of prior cold exposure defined by an array of poised enhancers that prime thermogenic genes for rapid response during a second bout of cold exposure. We further show that a transcriptional cascade involving the glucocorticoid receptor and Zfp423 can drive warm-induced whitening of beige adipocytes. These studies identify the epigenomic and transcriptional bases of an extraordinary example of cellular plasticity in response to environmental signals.
Overall design Ucp1-NuTRAP and Adipoq-NuTRAP mice exposed to different temperatures were used for brown, beige or white adipocyte-specific transcriptomic and epigenomic analysis.
