Extended ncRNAs interfere with promoter nucleosome dynamics

Abstract / Description of output

Eukaryotic genomes generate vast numbers of ncRNA that can inhibit mRNA synthesis through transcription interference, but the mechanisms were unclear. A recent paper [1]shows that transcription of anti-sense, ncRNAs induces “elongation marks“ on histones in promoter regions. These inhibit active nucleosome positioning required to maintain open transcription-initiation sites.
