抄録

Human CYP19 spans a region of chromosome 15 of approximately 130 kb and encodes aromatase, an enzyme required for estrogen synthesis. In the human granulosa cell-line KGN, there are seven open chromatin regions within the CYP19 locus. In this study, we demonstrate that two of these regions ~40 kb upstream and ~15 kb downstream of the CYP19 promoter are cohesin-loading sites, physically interacting with the promoter to negatively and positively regulate transcription, respectively. These observations suggest that CYP19 expression is controlled by a balance between the upstream silencer and downstream enhancer. When cohesin is depleted, CYP19 expression is elevated since the silencer is 2.5-fold further from the promoter than the enhancer and most likely depends on cohesin-mediated tethering to influence expression.
