Title: Coordinate Regulation of Enhancer Transcription at Super-Enhancers

Accession Number: GSE60857

Link to Dataset:

Repository: Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO)

Data Type(s): Gene Expression

Experiment Type(s): Expression profiling by high throughput sequencing

Organism(s): Mus musculus

Summary: Using GRO-Seq, we find extensive regulation of enhancer RNAs (eRNA) within super-enhancers in response to lipopolysaccharide treatment in macrophages. Both activation and repression of gene expression are associated with super-enhancers and eRNA transcription dynamics. Treatment of macrophages with LPS targeted specific super-enhancers by attenuating their eRNA expression, leading to expression of key inflammatory genes. We propose that super-enhancers function as molecular rheostats integrating the binding profiles of key regulators to produce dynamic profiles of gene expression.
