2) (87). The only nontrivial issue remaining is that we do not yet know how to read these mechanisms from 3C-type data. As it relates to transcription in mammals, the function of chromatin looping appears chiefly to either promote or prevent contacts between gene promoters and regulatory elements, particularly enhancers. Accordingly, active genes were shown to colocalize into factories (238), and the transient crowding of enzymes at these sites is thought to enhance transcription and splicing efficiency (241–243). DNA and proteins. In contrast, CTCF binding at the ICR and insulator looping are prevented by DNA methylation on paternal alleles, allowing the Igf2 gene to contact the distal enhancer by transcription factor-mediated looping. GCC has since been used to map the spatial organization of the Escherichia coli nucleoid (119). Also, in addition to contacts between the LCR and the active β-globin genes, a network of interactions was found to link DNase I-hypersensitive sites from both sides of the locus, the LCR, and the active gene(s) (76, 226). Microbial Genomics: Targeted Antimicrobial Therapy and Genome Vaccines, 13. Human chromosome 19, for example, is a small gene-rich chromosome more frequently found at the center of the nucleus than chromosome 18, which is similar in size but gene poor (149–152). I also suspected the data from 23&me and the Ancestry DNA database was being covertly utilized as well. Oxford University Press makes no representation, express or implied, that the drug dosages in this book are correct. The overall tendency of active gene-rich regions to cluster into transcription factories may thus play an important role in genome organization as a source of chromatin loops and by compartmentalizing coregulated genes (246–248). These interactions are driven by the chromatin landscape and are thus often tissue specific and regulated. The β-globin protein produced from this region along with α-globin together form the two subunits of hemoglobin, which transports oxygen in the blood of mammals. CTCF is nonetheless required for proper TAD formation since its depletion results in fewer intra-TAD contacts and in more inter-TAD interactions (299). 2 • Human chromosomes • The Human Genome Project, the Endcode Project, etc.-reading our genome and some general principles of identifying genes • The evolutionary mechanisms that shaped our genome • How much of our genome is functionally significant?
