Three-dimensional nuclear organization in Arabidopsis thaliana

Abstract : In recent years, the study of plant three-dimensional nuclear architecture received increasing attention. Enabled by technological advances, our knowledge on nuclear architecture has greatly increased and we can now access large data sets describing its manifold aspects. The principles of nuclear organization in plants do not significantly differ from those in animals. Plant nuclear organization comprises various scales, ranging from gene loops to topologically associating domains to nuclear compartmentalization. However, whether plant three-dimensional chromosomal features also exert similar functions as in animals is less clear. This review discusses recent advances in the fields of three-dimensional chromosome folding and nuclear compartmentalization and describes a novel silencing mechanism, which is closely linked to nuclear architecture.
