Title Distinct epigenomic landscapes of pluripotent and lineage-committed human cells
Organism Homo sapiens
Experiment type Genome binding/occupancy profiling by high throughput sequencing
Summary Human embryonic stem cells share identical genomic sequences with other lineage-committed cells yet possess the remarkable properties of self-renewal and pluripotency. It has been proposed that epigenetic regulatory mechanisms, involving DNA methylation and various chromatin modifications, are at least partly responsible for the distinct cellular properties between different cell types. Previous studies focusing largely on gene promoters and CpG islands have identified close association between several chromatin modifications and DNA methylation, but revealed a relatively small degree of differences between pluripotent and lineage-committed cells. Here, we examine the association between 11 chromatin modifications and DNA methylation at high resolution throughout the genome in the human embryonic stem cells and primary fetal lung fibroblasts. We observe a new set of relationships between chromatin modifications and DNA methylation occurring outside of the promoter regions. We also find that epigenomic landscapes are drastically different between the ES cells and fibroblasts. In particular, over 40% of the human genome differs in their chromatin structure between the two cell types. Most of the changes come from a dramatic redistribution of the repressive H3K9me3 and H3K27me3 marks, which form large blocks that expand significantly in the fibroblasts relative to ES cells. Additionally, we identified numerous small and punctuated regions outside of promoters that are associated with many active chromatin modification marks, and show that chromatin dynamics at these potential regulatory sequences are associated with change in DNA methylation between the ES cells and fibroblasts. Our results provide new insights into epigenetic regulatory mechanisms underlying properties of pluripotency and cell fate commitment.
