‘Insulator bodies’ are aggregates of proteins but not of insulators
Chromatin insulators are thought to restrict the action of enhancers and silencers. The best‐known insulators in Drosophila require proteins such as Suppressor of Hairy wing (Su(Hw)) and Modifier ofExpand

Study of Long-Distance Functional Interactions between Su(Hw) Insulators That Can Regulate Enhancer-Promoter Communication in Drosophila melanogaster
ABSTRACT The Su(Hw) insulator found in the gypsy retrotransposon is the most potent enhancer blocker in Drosophila melanogaster. However, two such insulators in tandem do not preventExpand

Red flag on the white reporter: a versatile insulator abuts the white gene in Drosophila and is omnipresent in mini-white constructs
Much of the research on insulators in Drosophila has been done with transgenic constructs using the white gene (mini-white) as reporter. Hereby we report that the sequence between the white andExpand
