  Honors Program:   Heterochromatin and Nuclear Organization Through Development --- "Over 60% of the human genome consists of repeat DNA and only a few per cent of our genome actually codes for proteins. As cells differentiate into specific cells types, basically all of the repeat DNA and most of our non-repeat sequences are packaged into a nontranscribed structure called heterochromatin. The histones bound to heterochroamtin bear specific modifications, which themselves attract transcription-repressing nonhistone proteins. In most cells heterochromatin is sequestered away from active chromatin by interaction with the nuclear envelope or with the periphery of the nucleolus. We have used the simple threadworm C. elegans to examine the importance of heterochromatin and its spatial sequestration during the development of a multicellular organism. Various screens have identified the readers and writers of heterochromatin marks, and we have been able to eliminate these in worm embryos. What happens to development or cell type commitment, if cells lack the enzymes that deposit the characteristic heterochromatin marks ? What happens when repeat sequences are no longer silenced ? C elegans has offered an elegant model system to explore these questions, and argues strongly that genome stability is one of the primary functions achieved by packaging the genome into heterochromatin. This sheds some light on the negative impact of heterochromatin changes in oncogenic cell transformation." , Susan M.
