Macrophages respond to inflammatory stimuli by modulating the expression of hundreds of genes in a defined temporal cascade, with diverse transcriptional and posttranscriptional mechanisms contributing to the regulatory network. We examined proinflammatory gene regulation in activated macrophages by performing RNA-seq with fractionated chromatin-associated,… (More)
In this issue and in a recent issue of Cell, Vahedi et al. and Samstein et al. provide new insights into the strategies used to establish an enhancer landscape during development of cell lineages. They report that enhancer landscapes characterizing T cell lineages are pre-established and strongly influenced by environmental stimuli.
