Epigenetic landscapes reveal transcription factors regulating CD8+ T cell differentiation


Dynamic changes in the expression of transcription factors (TFs) can influence specification of distinct CD8+ T cell fates, but the observation of equivalent expression of TF among differentiallyfated precursor cells suggests additional underlying mechanisms. Here, we profiled genome-wide histone modifications, open chromatin and gene expression of naive, terminal-effector, memoryprecursor and memory CD8+ T cell populations induced during the in vivo response to bacterial Users may view, print, copy, and download text and data-mine the content in such documents, for the purposes of academic research, subject always to the full Conditions of use: http://www.nature.com/authors/editorial_policies/license.html#terms Correspondence should be addressed to A.W.G.
