    Histone 3 lysine 9 (H3K9) demethylase JMJD1A regulates β-adrenergic-induced systemic metabolism and body weight control. Here we show that JMJD1A is phosphorylated at S265 by protein kinase A (PKA), and this is pivotal to activate the β1-adrenergic receptor gene (Adrb1) and downstream targets including Ucp1 in brown adipocytes (BATs). Phosphorylation of JMJD1A by PKA increases its interaction with the SWI/SNF nucleosome remodelling complex and DNA-bound PPARγ. This complex confers β-adrenergic-induced rapid JMJD1A recruitment to target sites and facilitates long-range chromatin interactions and target gene activation. This rapid gene induction is dependent on S265 phosphorylation but not on demethylation activity. Our results show that JMJD1A has two important roles in regulating hormone-stimulated chromatin dynamics that modulate thermogenesis in BATs. In one role, JMJD1A is recruited to target sites and functions as a cAMP-responsive scaffold that facilitates long-range chromatin interactions, and in the second role, JMJD1A demethylates H3K9 di-methylation.

    As a central event in liver fibrogenesis, hepatic stellate cell (HSC) transdifferentiation involves loss of regulation by adipogenic transcription factors such as peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ; (PPARγ), which is epigenetically silenced during HSC activation. We hypothesized that JMJD1A, an H3K9 demethylase involved in adipogenic metabolism, could regulate PPARγ. In human HSC cell line, rat primary HSCs, and carbontetrachloride-induced mouse liver fibrogenesis model, we down-regulated the expression of JMJD1A using small interfering or short hairpin RNAs, and overexpressed its wild-type and mutant.

    Post-translational histone methylation is a dynamic and reversible process that is involved in the spatio-temporal regulation of gene transcription and contributes to various cellular phenotypes. Methylation of histone H3 at lysine 9 (H3K9), which is generally a transcriptional repression mark, is demethylated by H3K9-specific demethylases, leading to transcriptional activation. However, how multiple demethylases with the same substrate specificity differ in their chromatin targeting mechanisms has not been well understood. Read More

    Spermatogenesis, a fundamental process in the male reproductive system, requires a series of tightly controlled epigenetic and genetic events in germ cells ranging from spermatogonia to spermatozoa. Jmjd1a is a key epigenetic regulator expressed in the testis. It specifically demethylates mono- and di-methylated histone H3 lysine 9 (H3K9me1 and H3K9me2) but not tri-methylated H3K9 (H3K9me3).

    Regulation of c-Myc expression by the histone demethylase JMJD1A is essential for prostate cancer cell growth and survival.

    The histone demethylase JMJD1A, which controls gene expression by epigenetic regulation of H3K9 methylation marks, functions in diverse activities, including spermatogenesis, metabolism and stem cell self-renewal and differentiation. Here, we found that JMJD1A knockdown in prostate cancer cells antagonizes their proliferation and survival. Profiling array analyses revealed that JMJD1A-dependent genes function in cellular growth, proliferation and survival, and implicated that the c-Myc transcriptional network is deregulated following JMJD1A inhibition.
