Abstract: The ability of somatic stem cells to self-renew and differentiate into downstream lineages is dependent on specialized chromatin environments that keep stem cell-specific genes active and key differentiation factors repressed but poised for activation. The epigenetic factors that provide this type of regulation remain ill-defined. Here we provide the first evidence that the SNF2-like ATPase Mi-2␤ of the Nucleosome Remodeling Deacetylase (NuRD) complex is required for maintenance of and multilineage differenti…
