Abstract

This Perspective highlights experiments that probe the complexity and regulation underlying cyclical association of nuclear receptor transcriptional complexes with DNA. Using advanced in vivo and in vitro techniques, these studies emphasize the importance of chromatin remodeling and histone modification in defining the timing and nature of the cycles. In addition, they reveal the multiplicity of receptor-coregulator complexes that reside on a single promoter. These conceptual and technical achievements integrate kinetic and combinatorial regulation into a new dynamic model of nuclear receptor–mediated transcription.
