Nuclei and chromatin alterations through cell cycle and senescence in mammalian cells

Abstract

The nucleus is a complex organelle composed of nucleic acids and proteins in a tight relationship. The nuclear proteome, specially the chromatin proteome, plays a role in the regulation and management of genome that ultimately controls gene expression and cell phenotype. Many evidences demonstrate an important role of nucleus and chromatin in eukaryotic cell cycle control. The fibroblast growth factor 2 transiently blocks mice tumor cells in G1àS transition followed by irreversible blockage in G2à M. At this latter point, it is possible to detect cells with a senescent phenotype. Thus, the main objective of this project is to study the role of nucleus and chromatin proteome in cell cycle and senescence induced by FGF2. For this purpose, we will establish a platform of quantitative proteomic with special emphasis on the study of cell nucleus and chromatin with a Systems Biology perspective of data analysis and interpretation. We intend to analyze in more detail the pattern of histone post translational modifications through cell cycle and senescence in order to investigate if they can play a role in cell cycle or senescence progression. The dynamic of protein-DNA interactions will be also investigated and integrated with the proteomic alterations in order to develop a complete and systemic view of FGF2 effects in nucleus. (AU)
