Title: Transcription Dynamically Patterns the Meiotic Chromosome-Axis Interface

description:
Meiotic chromosomes are highly compacted yet remain transcriptionally active. To understand how chromosome folding accommodates transcription, we investigated the assembly of the axial element, the proteinaceous structure that compacts meiotic chromosomes and promotes recombination and fertility. We found that the axial element proteins of budding yeast are flexibly anchored to chromatin by the ring-like cohesin complex and biased towards small chromosomes by a separate modulating mechanism that requires the conserved axial-element component Hop1. The ubiquitous presence of cohesin at sites of convergent transcription provides well-dispersed points for axis attachment and thus compaction. Axis protein enrichment at these sites directly correlates with the propensity for recombination initiation. Importantly, axis anchoring by cohesin is adjustable and readily displaced in the direction of transcription by the transcriptional machinery. We propose that such robust but flexible tethering allows the axial element to promote recombination while easily adapting to changes in chromosome activity. Overall design: 7 genome wide meiotic ChIP-seq sets: V5-Red1 DNA interaction (V5-Red1-ChIP), V5-Red1 DNA interaction in the absence of axis protein Hop1 (V5-Red1-ChIP, hop1delta), V5-Red1 DNA interaction in the absence of another two axis proteins Hop1 and Rec8 (V5-Red1-ChIP, hop1delta rec8delta), Rec8-HA DNA interaction (Rec8-HA-ChIP), Rec8-HA DNA interactionin the absence of Red1 (Rec8-HA-ChIP, red1delta), and 2 untagged control (V5-untagged-ChIP, HA-untagged-ChIP) (corresponding to the main Figure5)
