Abstract

Lethal (3) malignant brain tumor [L(3)mbt] is a conserved transcriptional regulator. Chromatin
immunoprecipitation (ChIP) followed by high-throughput sequencing (ChIP-seq) analysis was
done to determine the genome-wide distribution of L(3)mbt in Drosophila melanogaster.
Results show that L(3)mbt is present at insulator sites in embryonic Kc cells; inverse levels of
enrichment of L(3)mbt and CP190 were also observed where binding sites overlap. Furthermore,
immunofluorescence microscopy of imaginal disc cells shows that L(3)mbt localizes to nuclear
bodies adjacent to CP190 insulator bodies. Comparison of L(3)mbt ChIP-seq data between two
cell lines revealed cell type-specific L(3)mbt enrichment sites, suggesting its role in differential
regulation of gene expression patterns.
