  • Novel molecular players of X chromosome inactivation: new technologies and new insights

    Piotr Przanowski , Urszula Waśko , Sanchita Bhatnagar
    The dosage compensation in placental mammals is achieved by silencing of one copy of the X chromosomes in a female cell by a process called X chromosome inactivation (XCI). XCI ensures equal gene dosage for X-linked genes between the two genders. Although the choice of X chromosome to be silenced is random, once the silencing of the X chromosome has been established, this process is highly regulated and maintained throughout subsequent cell divisions. A long non-coding RNA, Xist, and its interacting proteins execute this multistep process, but several of these regulatory proteins remain... Read more

  • Reversal of X chromosome inactivation: lessons from pluripotent reprogramming of mouse and human somatic cells

    Irene Cantone
    X chromosome inactivation (XCI) is a strategy used by mammals to silence genes along one of the two female X chromosomes and equilibrate expression dosage between XY males and XX females. This epigenetically-inherited silencing is established during early embryonic development and maintained thereafter through cell divisions. Seeding of multiple repressive epigenetic marks along the inactive X chromosome (Xi) makes inactivation extremely robust and difficult to reverse upon single genetic perturbations. Reversal of XCI has, however, been observed when somatic cells are reprogrammed towards... Read more
