NEAT1 regulates microtubule stabilization via FZD3/GSK3β/P-tau pathway in SH-SY5Y cells and APP/PS1 mice

Figure 4. NEAT1 regulates FZD3 expression via recruitment of histone acetyltransferase P300. (A) After co-transfection with NEAT1v2 siRNA or Ctrl siRNA and the pGL3 enhancer plasmid containing FZD3 promoter fragments, the relative transcriptional activities were determined with a luciferase assay in three independent experiments. (B) The shNEAT1v2 cells and shCtrl cells were collected for ChIP assays to analyze the relative fold enrichment of the FZD3 promoter using anti-H3K27Ac antibody (n=3). (C) Schematic of potential P300 binding sites in the NEAT1 sequence. The shNEAT1v2 cells and shCtrl cells lysates were harvested and subjected to a RIP assay. QRT-PCR was performed to detect the retrieval of NEAT1 and ACTB by the anti-P300 and anti-IgG antibodies over the input level (n=3). (D) ChIP-PCR analysis was performed to detect the potential P300 binding sites in the FZD3 promoter after using SH-SY5Y cells lysates (n=3). (E) The shNEAT1v2 cells and shCtrl cells were collected for ChIP assays to analyze the relative fold enrichment of the FZD3 promoter using anti-P300 antibody (n=3). (F) The 20μM C646 treated and vehicle treated SH-SY5Y cells were collected for ChIP assays to analyze H3K27Ac enrichment level of the FZD3 promoter (n=3) (mean ± s.d, *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, Student 2-tailed t test).
