Co-occupancy by multiple cardiac transcription factors identifies transcriptional enhancers active in heart.
Cardiac transcription factors in HL-1 cells: genome binding profiling
Transcription Factor Binding (ChIP-Seq)
We performed bio-ChIP-seq using streptavidin beads immunoprecipitation of biotinylated 5 cardiac transcription factors (fbio) and P300 antibody ChIP-seq. We used a dox-inducible dual adenovirus system to express biotinylated Core Cardiac TFs in HL1. One adenovirus expressed the dox-activated reverse tet activator protein (rtTA) and the E. coli biotinylating enzyme BirA from the cardiac specific rat troponin T promoter. The second virus expressed a Core Cardiac TF fused to a C-terminal flag-bio epitope tag, where bio is the 15 amino acid substrate for BirA. This in vivo biotinylation approach permits pulldown of different factors to be performed under identical, stringent conditions, and circumvents limitations posed by available antibodies. We titrated adenovirus and dox doses to express GATA4flbio and MEF2Aflbio at near endogenous levels. The same conditions were then used to express SRFflbio, TBX5flbio, and NKX2-5flbio.
