Cím:Regulatory modules of human thermogenic adipocytes : functional genomics of large cohort and Meta-analysis derived marker-genes / B. Tóth Beáta, Barta Zoltán, Barta Ákos Barnabás, Fésüs László
Megjegyzések:Background Recently, ProFAT and BATLAS studies identified brown and white adipocytes marker genes based on analysis of large databases. They offered scores to determine the thermogenic status of adipocytes using the gene-expression data of these markers. In this work, we investigated the functional context of these genes. Results Gene Set Enrichment Analyses (KEGG, Reactome) of the BATLAS and ProFAT marker-genes identified pathways deterministic in the formation of brown and white adipocytes. The collection of the annotated proteins of the defined pathways resulted in expanded white and brown characteristic protein-sets, which theoretically contain all functional proteins that could be involved in the formation of adipocytes. Based on our previously obtained RNA-seq data, we visualized the expression profile of these proteins coding genes and found patterns consistent with the two adipocyte phenotypes. The trajectory of the regulatory processes could be outlined by the transcriptional profile of progenitor and differentiated adipocytes, highlighting the importance of suppression processes in browning. Protein interaction network-based functional genomics by STRING, Cytoscape and R-Igraph platforms revealed that different biological processes shape the brown and white adipocytes and highlighted key regulatory elements and modules including GAPDH-CS, DECR1, SOD2, IL6, HRAS, MTOR, INS-AKT, ERBB2 and 4-NFKB, and SLIT-ROBO-MAPK. To assess the potential role of a particular protein in shaping adipocytes, we assigned interaction network location-based scores (betweenness centrality, number of bridges) to them and created a freely accessible platform, the AdipoNET (https//, to conveniently use these data. The Eukaryote Promoter Database predicted the response elements in the UCP1 promoter for the identified, potentially important transcription factors (HIF1A, MYC, REL, PPARG, TP53, AR, RUNX, and FoxO1). Conclusion Our integrative approach-based results allowed us to investigate potential regulatory elements of thermogenesis in adipose tissue. The analyses revealed that some unique biological processes form the brown and white adipocyte phenotypes, which presumes the existence of the transitional states. The data also suggests that the two phenotypes are not mutually exclusive, and differentiation of thermogenic adipocyte requires induction of browning as well as repressions of whitening. The recognition of these simultaneous actions and the identified regulatory modules can open new direction in obesity research.
