 Project objective

Substantial evidence indicates that even when genetically matched, we are not created equal. The mechanisms underlying such non-Mendelian phenotype variation are sufficient to elicit complex disease but remain unknown. In this context, the regulators of chromatin state have the ability to establish cellular memory, which is encoding specific silenced gene expression states through mitosis and is involved in control phenotypic variation. Interestingly, two chromatin ‘stabilizing’ genes (Trim28 / Dnmt3a) and two obesity buffering ‘effector’ genes (Peg3 / Nnat) are involved in triggering bi-stable epigenetic obesity. This present proposal aims at intersecting all four models of polyphenism to identify the core transcriptional and chromatin machinery required to establish and switch ‘On’ or ‘Off’ the Obese state. Thus, I will to explore these four mutants [Trim28(D9/), Dnmt3a(/-), Peg3(/-p), and Nnat(/-p)], which will serve as a biological filter to reveal core requirements. First, I will define co-variation of a spectrum of complex trait phenotypes resulting from insufficiency at each of these loci. Then, I will decipher the mechanism underlying their sensitized bi-stable obesity. Third, I will assess the epigenetic basis of their buffering of polyphenism. The aim of this proposal is to precisely provide, for the first time, reference-depth phenomic and epigenomic profiling of chromatin sensitizer- (Trim28- / Dnmt3a-) and chromatin effector- (Peg3- / Nnat-) induced stochastic obesity. The work will uncover the first definitive genetic and genomic templates for probing non-Mendelian phenotypic variation and stochastic obesity and thus highlight new therapeutic perspectives.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "EPOC" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email (fabio@fabiodisconzi.com) and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
