真核細胞的DNA與其纏繞的組蛋白形成一特殊結構稱為染色質。染色質結構上的鬆緊程度,以及位於染色質上的非組蛋白因子(non-histone proteins),緊密的調控著與DNA相關之生物過程(如DNA複製、轉錄、修復等)。細胞具有多種染色質調控蛋白及相關分子機制,透過修飾組蛋白或 DNA、重整染色質、或透過特定組蛋白密碼(histone code)來調控染色質結構,進而影響之後的生理步驟。由於這一類型調控染色質的機制不是由基因體序列中的資訊來主導,因此被統稱為表觀遺傳調控 (epigenetic regulation)。此類調控因子的功能及活性機轉方面的研究,為「染色質/表觀基因體學」學門之重要主題,我們希望利用整合性的研究系統,更進一步 的將染色質結構調控及其相關蛋白,與細胞生長、細胞致癌、以及個體發育作一個連結。
The field of chromatin biology/epigenomics has been a fascinating area of research inquiry in the last decade or so mainly due to the isolation and identification of a myriad of chromatin structure modulators. Through remodeling (or further packaging) or modification of the nucleosomal assembly, or establishing particular histone code or DNA methylation pattern, these types of “epigenetic regulator” activities have proven intrinsically vital to the control of gene expression and DNA structure maintenance, and ultimately, cell physiology. My research is focused mainly on several novel chromatin-associated factors, all of which have distinct yet largely uncharacterized epigenetic roles during different chromatin-based processes.
The field of chromatin biology/functional epigenomics focuses on the functional integration of many signaling pathways and different chromatin-associated enzymatic or structural factors. Therefore, to thoroughly characterize the functions of our target chromatin modifiers, we are undertaking a multi-disciplinary scheme entailing various tools and methods:
A. An integrated, functional genomic-based approach based on powerful methods such as ChIP-on-chip, microarray, TF-TF array, and interactomic/proteomic analyses.
B. A cell biology/developmental biology approach, including techniques such as immunocytochemistry, siRNA-mediated gene knock down, cell cycle profiling, and mouse genetics.
