Title Defining the dynamic chromatin landscape of nephron progenitors
Organism Mus musculus
Experiment type Genome binding/occupancy profiling by high throughput sequencing
Summary Six2+ cap mesenchyme cells, also called nephron progenitor cells (NPC), are a multipotent stem cell population and precursors of all epithelial cell types of the nephron, the filtering unit of the kidney. In mammals, formation of new nephrons ceases perinatally associated with a surge in NPC differentiation. Current evidence indicates that perinatal “old” NPC have a greater tendency to exit the progenitor niche and differentiate into nascent nephrons than their embryonic “young” counterparts. Understanding the biological underpinnings of NPC aging may offer insights to rejuvenate old NPC and expand the progenitor pool. In the present study, we compared the chromatin landscape of young and old NPC and found common features reflecting their shared lineage but also intrinsic differences in chromatin accessibility and enhancer landscape supporting the view that old NPC and epigenetically poised for differentiation. Annotation of open chromatin regions and active enhancers uncovered the transcription factor Bach2 as a potential link between the pro-renewal MAPK/AP1 and pro-differentiation Six2/b-catenin pathways that might be of critical importance in regulation of NPC fate. Our data provide the first glimpse of the dynamic chromatin landscape of NPC and serve as a platform for future studies of the impact of genetic or environmental perturbations on the epigenome of NPC.
