Table of S. purpuratus Enhancer RNAs (eRNAs)
The data are available for download here.
The Excel file is called "Table of S. purpuratus eRNAs".
The table contains eRNAs mapped to the S. purpuratus v5.0 genome.
What are eRNAs?
Enhancers are regions of DNA that are involved in regulating gene expression. Unlike promoters, these cis-regulatory elements do not have strict requirements of position or orientation. In 2010, it was discovered that enhancers can be transcribed to produce enhancer RNAs or eRNAs (reviewed by Arnold, Wells and Li, 2019). The role of eRNAs and the mechanisms involved in the regulation and expression of developmental genes is the subject of active research.
