Zusammenfassung
Gene transcription is controlled by transcriptional regulators acting with specific co-regulators to allow gene activation and repression. Here, we report the identification of the KRAB-containing zinc-finger transcriptional regulator, ZBRK1, as interaction partner of the SCA2 gene product ataxin-2. Furthermore, we discovered that an elevated ZBRK1 level resulted in increased ataxin-2 levels, whereas interference on transcriptional and protein levels of ZBRK1 yielded reduced ataxin-2 levels, suggesting that a complex comprising ZBRK1 and ataxin-2 regulates SCA2 gene transcription. A bioinformatic analysis utilizing the known ZBRK1 consensus DNA binding motif revealed ZBRK1 binding sites in the SCA2 promoter. These predicted sites were experimentally validated by chromatin-immunoprecipitation experiments along with luciferase-based promoter analyses corroborating that SCA2 gene transcription is controlled by a ZBRK1/ataxin-2 complex. Finally, we demonstrate that SCA2 gene transcription is significantly reduced in colon tumours possessing low ZBRK1 transcripts. Thus, our results provide first evidence that ataxin-2 acts as a co-regulator of ZBRK1 activating its own transcription, thereby representing the first identified ZBRK1 co-activator.
