Title: NSD2 links dimethylation of histone H3 at lysine 36 to oncogenic programming [ChIP]      
dateReleased:
11-29-2011
description:
NSD2 (also named MMSET and WHSC1) is a histone lysine methyltransferase that is implicated in diverse diseases and commonly overexpressed in multiple myeloma due to a recurrent t(4;14) chromosomal translocation. However, the precise catalytic activity of NSD2 is obscure, preventing progress in understanding how this enzyme influences chromatin biology and myeloma pathogenesis. Here we show that dimethylation of histone H3 at lysine 36 (H3K36me2) is the principal chromatin-regulatory activity of NSD2. Catalysis of H3K36me2 by NSD2 is sufficient for gene activation. In t(4;14)-positive myeloma cells, the normal genome-wide and gene-specific distribution of H3K36me2 is obliterated, creating a chromatin landscape that selects for a transcription profile favorable for myelomagenesis. Catalytically active NSD2 confers xenograft tumor formation and invasion capacity upon t(4;14)-negative cells and NSD2 promotes oncogenic transformation of primary cells in an H3K36me2-dependent manner. Together our findings establish H3K36me2 as the primary product generated by NSD2, and demonstrate that genomic disorganization of this canonical chromatin mark initiates oncogenic programming. ChIP sequencing of H3K36me2 ChIP DNA from KMS11 and TKO2 cells using Illumina Solexa Genome Analyzer II single end sequencing protocol. The experiment contains two biological replicates of H3K36me2 ChIP DNA and input materials from KMS11 and TKO2 cells.
