Transcriptional enhancers: Transcription, function and flexibility

Philippa Melamed, Yahav Yosefzon, Sergei Rudnizky, Lilach Pnueli

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Active transcriptional enhancers are often transcribed to eRNAs, whose changing levels mirror those of the target gene mRNA. We discuss some of the reported functions of these eRNAs and their likely diversity to allow utilization of distinct cis regulatory regions to enhance transcription in diverse developmental and cellular contexts.
