Identification and characterization of DNA sequences that prevent glucocorticoid receptor binding to nearby response elements

Jonas Telorac, Sergey V. Prykhozhij, Stefanie Schöne, David Meierhofer, Sascha Sauer, Morgane Thomas-Chollier, Sebastiaan H. Meijsing
2016 Nucleic Acids Research  
Motif analyses uncovered candidate Negative Regulatory Sequences (NRSs) that interfere with genomic GR binding.  ...  Instead, we find that NRSs interact with proteins found at sub-nuclear structures called paraspeckles and that these proteins might mediate the repressive effects of NRSs.  ...  Thus, one explanation for the effect of NRSs could be that they render nearby genomic regions inaccessible.  ...
