Work Context

To dissect the mechanisms by which chromatin structure and dynamics regulate gene expression, motion of DNA and proteins have to be analysed in real time and single cells. We have studied architectural changes in chromatin of key genes sensitive to hormone in mammary tumor cells (MCF7) at different scales and have shown that the movement of chromatin is constraint during the initiation of transcription (Germier, Biophys. J, 2017; Shaban bioRxiv 2018). The transcription factor, the estrogen receptor α (ERα), is known to form foci in cells treated with a hormone. Our goal is to show if these foci represent transcription factories that can form around chromatin fibers and loops and if mRNA output is dependent on this dynamic.
