Genome-wide approaches have begun to elucidate the transcriptional and epigenetic regulatory networks responsible for pluripotency in embryonic stem (ES) cells. Chromatin Immunoprecipitation (ChIP) followed either by hybridization to a microarray platform (ChIP-chip), or by DNA sequencing (ChIP-PET), has identified the genomic-binding targets of the ES cell transcription factors Oct4 and Nanog in humans and mice, respectively. A central issue that remains to be resolved is the concordance of the data obtained by these methods, given the differences between the two techniques. Here, we report the identification of the Oct4 and Nanog genomic targets in mouse ES cells by ChIP-Chip and have compared the data with binding data identified previously by ChIP-PET. Binding data have also been combined with Oct4 and Nanog RNAi knockdown expression profiling data in ES cells. Surprisingly, we find a substantial difference between the regions that identified exclusively by one of the two techniques. In both studies, however, targets identified by either technique contain a number of genes that are differentially expressed on Oct4 or Nanog knockdown, and have been implicated in cell-fate determination events. This study provides a comparison between the data obtained by different genomic platform, and offers a more comprehensive picture of the stem cell transcriptional network.
