The Hierarchy of Transcriptional Activation: From Enhancer to Promoter

Research output: Contribution to journalLiterature reviewpeer-review

Abstract / Description of output

Regulatory elements (enhancers) that are remote from promoters play a critical role in the spatial, temporal, and physiological control of gene expression. Studies on specific loci, together with genome-wide approaches, suggest that there may be many common mechanisms involved in enhancer-promoter communication. Here, we discuss the multiprotein complexes that are recruited to enhancers and the hierarchy of events taking place between regulatory elements and promoters.
