Erosion of X Chromosome Inactivation in Human Pluripotent Cells Initiates with Coating and Depends on a Specific Heterochromatin Landscape

Bhaskar Chanda Stem Cell Rougeulle and colleagues show that XCI erosion in human pluripotent cells is related to a pluripotency-specific epigenomic landscape on the inactive X chromosome, and that coating by the XACT lncRNA and gene reactivation precedes loss of XIST expression during this process. 12 more words

β-Catenin Regulates Primitive Streak Induction through Collaborative Interactions with SMAD2/SMAD3 and OCT4

Bhaskar Chanda Stem Cell In this article, Funa, Schachter, and colleagues et al. provide mechanistic insights into how Wnt signaling controls early cell lineage decisions. β-catenin occupies regulatory regions in numerous PS and neural crest genes, and direct interactions between β-catenin and SMAD2/SMAD3 in proximity to OCT4 binding are required to specifically activate PS genes. 12 more words
