Aberrant chromatin features and epigenetic signaling emerge as an important part of the tumor disease state in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). However, an integrative analysis of the malignant chromatin landscape is currently missing. Here, we mapped DNA-methylation, nucleosome position, 7 histone modifications, ATAC-seq and the transcriptome in primary CD19+ sorted B-cells from the peripheral blood of CLL patients in comparison to non-malignant lymphocytes of healthy donor reference samples. On the > 50 kb scale we identified global differences with respect to DNA methylation, nucleosome positioning and histone modifications in CLL. Furthermore, a chromatin state annotation was developed to identify deregulated chromatin features of promoters and enhancers in CLL. By integrating these findings with an ATAC-seq based transcription factor binding analysis we identified a set of promoters and enhancers specific to CLL that were enriched in certain transcription factors binding motifs and genes of the BCR signaling pathway. Thus, our study provides an in-depth map of the CLL chromatin landscape and links chromatin state changes at promoters and enhancers to deregulated pathways.
