Chromatin accessibility changes in hiPSC-derived neurons after BDNF and KCl stimulations

Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF) is crucial for neuronal survival, differentiation, synaptic plasticity, memory formation, and neurocognitive health. Molecular mechanisms of BDNF promoting cellular survival and synaptic plasticity have been intensely studied, yet its role in genome regulation is obscure. Using human induced pluripotent stem cell (hiPSC)-derived neurons via lentiviral delivery of the neuronal transcription factor Ngn2, we performed a temporal profiling (1h, 6h and 10h) of chromatin accessibility upon BDNF treatment or depolarization (KCl) to identify BDNF-specific chromatin-to-gene expression programs.
