Title The nuclear matrix protein SAFB maintains heterochromatin architecture through RNA-dependent phase separation [HiChIP]
Organism Mus musculus
Experiment type Other
Summary Eukaryotic chromosomes fold into topologically associating domains (TADs), which further gather in active (A) or inactive (B) genomic compartments. Here we show that Scaffold Attachment Factor B (SAFB), a nuclear matrix-associated protein with RNA binding functions, modulates global chromatin condensation in a dosage-dependent manner. Upon the depletion of SAFB, the genome coverage of Lamina-associated-domains (LADs) decreases from 53.33% to 45.93%, and both inter- and intra-TAD chromatin-chromatin interactions in compartment B decrease significantly. In the nucleus, SAFB favorably co-localizes with H3K9me3, a marker of heterochromatin, and the disruption of SAFB leads to a collapse of H3K9me3 foci. Furthermore, we show that SAFB proteins can form liquid-liquid phase separation in the cell and in vitro. Intriguingly, SAFB interacts with RNAs from repetitive elements enriched in heterochromatin (e.g., Major Satellites and LINE1), which can promote SAFB-mediated phase separation, depending on the density of SAFB recognizing motifs in the RNAs.
Overall design H3K9me3 HiChIP data in Ctrl and Safb KD AML12 cells.
