Rajakumari2013 Data: EBF2 determines and maintains brown adipocyte identity

By (Secondary Ownership. The experiment uses only third-party data.)

Abstract from Pubmed:

The master transcription factor, Ppar-gamma regulates the general differentiation program of both brown and white adipocytes. However, it has been unclear whether Ppar-gamma also controls fat lineage-specific characteristics. Here, we show that Early B-Cell Factor-2 (Ebf2) regulates Ppar-gamma binding activity to determine brown versus white adipocyte identity. The Ebf DNA-binding motif was highly enriched within brown adipose-specific Ppar-gamma binding sites that we identified by genomewide ChIP-Seq. Of the Ebf isoforms, Ebf2 was selectively expressed in brown relative to white adipocytes and was bound at brown adipose-specific Ppar-gamma target genes. When expressed in myoblasts or white pre-adipose cells, Ebf2 recruited Ppar-Gamma to its brown-selective binding sites and reprogrammed cells to a brown fat fate. Brown adipose cells and tissue from Ebf2-deficient mice displayed a loss of brown-specific characteristics and thermogenic capacity. Together, these results identify Ebf2 as a key transcriptional regulator of brown fat cell fate and function.

Main Experimental Results

This is a selection of main results from the data analysis in this experiment. All intermediate results and more data are available from the workflow designer.

Other data generated in this experiment:

Typical analysis workflows my generate dozens or even hundreds of outputs. To condense the amount of information into more easily digestible portions, GeneProf will, by default, only display the experiments input data (here: input data) and a selection of the most important outputs (here: main results). You can drill down into the details of the analysis via the workflow designer or you can display other intermediate outputs here.
