The realization that nuclear distribution of DNA, RNA, and proteins differs between cell types and developmental stages suggests that nuclear organization serves regulatory functions. Understanding the logic of nuclear architecture and how it contributes to differentiation and cell fate commitment remains challenging. Here, we use soft X-ray tomography (SXT) to image chromatin organization, distribution, and biophysical properties during neurogenesis in vivo. Our analyses reveal that chromatin with similar biophysical properties forms an elaborate connected network throughout the entire nucleus. Although this interconnectivity is present in every developmental stage, differentiation proceeds with concomitant increase in chromatin compaction and re-distribution of condensed chromatin toward the nuclear core. HP1b, but not nucleosome spacing or phasing, regulates chromatin rearrangements because it governs both the compaction of chromatin and its interactions with the nuclear envelope. Our experiments introduce SXT as a powerful imaging technology for nuclear architecture. ...

Quantitative Microscopy Reveals Stepwise Alteration of Chromatin Structure during Herpesvirus Infection Aho, Vesa; Mäntylä, Elina; Ekman, Axel; Hakanen, Satu; Mattola, Salla; Chen, Jian-Hua; Weinhardt, Venera; Ruokolainen, Visa; Sodeik, Beate; Larabell, Carolyn; Vihinen-Ranta, Maija (MDPI, 2019)During lytic herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV-1) infection, the expansion of the viral replication compartments leads to an enrichment of the host chromatin in the peripheral nucleoplasm. We have shown previously that HSV-1 ...

Small-angle X-ray scattering reveals compact domain-domain interactions in the n-terminal region of filamin C Sethi, Ritika; Ylänne, Jari (Public Library of Science, 2014)Filamins are multi-domain, actin cross-linking, and scaffolding proteins. In addition to the actin cross-linking function, filamins have a role in mechanosensor signaling. The mechanosensor function is mediated by ...
