How cells stress-out differently

February 22, 2018
The release of stress hormones triggers a wide variety of different responses in the organism. Some of these responses are controlled by so-called enhancers, regulatory regions in the genome, which influence the activity of genes. Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics (MPIMG) in Berlin now found that an individual enhancer can contribute to distinct stress responses in different cell types. This is because the shared enhancer regulates the expression of different gene transcripts in the distinct cell types thereby facilitating cell-type specific responses to stress. [more]
