Title An evolutionarily conserved function of polycomb silences the MHC class I antigen presentation pathway and enables immune evasion in cancer [ChIP-Seq]
Organisms Sarcophilus harrisii; Homo sapiens; Mus musculus
Experiment type Genome binding/occupancy profiling by high throughput sequencing
Summary Loss of MHC class I (MHC-I) antigen presentation in cancer cells can lead to immunotherapy resistance. Using a genome-wide CRISPR/Cas9 screen we identify a critical role for polycomb repressive complex 2 (PRC2) in the coordinated transcriptional silencing of the MHC-I antigen processing pathway (MHC-I APP). This evolutionarily conserved function of PRC2 promotes evasion of T-cell mediated immunity, enabling tumor transmission to non-histocompatible recipients in small cell lung cancer (SCLC) and Tasmanian Devil Facial Tumor. MHC-I APP gene promoters in MHC-I low cancers harbour bivalent activating H3K4me3 and repressive H3K27me3 histone modifications, silencing basal MHC-I expression and restricting cytokine induced MHC-I APP gene upregulation. Bivalent chromatin at MHC-I APP genes is a normal developmental process active in embryonic stem cells and maintained during neural progenitor differentiation. This physiological silencing of MHC-I expression highlights a conserved mechanism by which cancers arising from these primitive tissues coopt PRC2 activity to enable immune evasion.
Overall design Changes in histone modifications and IRF1 binding with EZH2 inhibitor in mouse SCLC and human K562 cells
