Chromatin Immunoprecipitation Sequencing (ChIP-Seq) provides genome-wide profiling of DNA targets for histone modification, transcription factors, and other DNA-associated proteins. It combines the selectivity of chromatin immuno-precipitation (ChIP) to recover specific protein-DNA complexes, with the power of next-generation sequencing (NGS) for high-throughput sequencing of the recovered DNA. Additionally, because the protein-DNA complexes are recovered from living cells, binding sites can be compared in different cell types and tissues, or under different conditions. At Novogene, we provide high-quality sequencing and comprehensive bioinformatics solutions for your ChIP-Seq projects.

1) Whole genome ChIP-seq revealed existence of the EGFR and c-MET super-enhancers in the human cervical cancer cell line
The existence of possible super-enhancers was screened by ChIP-seq analysis of H3K27Ac in the CaSki cells, as well as the CaSki-vector control and CaSki-KDM5C cells. It was found that there the two protooncogenes, EGFR and c-MET, each contained a super-enhancer. The EGFR super-enhancer is located in the first intron while the c-MET super-enhancer resides within the c-MET gene 50 region through intron 2 (Figure 1).

Figure 1. KDM5C regulates super-enhancers activity and gene expression of the EGFR and c-MET.

2) KDM5C regulates cervical cancer cell EGFR and c-MET expression by modulating their super-enhancer H3K4 methylation dynamics
ChIP-qPCR of KDM5C was performed and displayed a direct correlation between the restoration of KDM5C and its enrichment. KDM5C restoration led to specific increased H3K4me1 in global super-enhancers rather than in adjacent regions, confirming KDM5C as a specific enhancer regulator (Figure 2).

Figure 2. KDM5C were enriched at super-enhancer or other regions of EGFR and c-MET.


This study generated a carcinogenic model of HPV infection: HPV16 E6 binds to KDM5C and form an E6‒E6AP‒KDM5C complex, thereby degrading KDM5C in a polyubiquitin-dependent manner. As a result, the super-enhancers of key protooncogenes, EGFR and c-MET, become highly upregulated, increasing their expressions and promoting tumor cell growth. This finding has provided novel insights into virus-induced cancer.
