Characterization of genome-wide enhancer-promoter interactions reveals co-expression of interacting genes and modes of higher order chromatin organization

ABSTRACT: Recent epigenomic studies have predicted thousands of potential enhancers in the human genome. However, there has not been systematic characterization of target promoters for these potential enhancers. Using H3K4me2 as a mark for active enhancers, we identified genome-wide enhancer-promoter interactions in human CD4+ T cells. Among the 6,520 long-distance chromatin interactions, we identify 2,067 enhancers that interact with 1,619 promoters and enhance their expression. These enhancers exist in accessible chromatin regions and are associated with various histone modifications and Pol II binding. The promoters with interacting enhancers are expressed at higher levels than those without interacting enhancers and their expression levels are positively correlated with the number of interacting enhancers. Interestingly, interacting promoters are co-expressed in a tissue-specific manner. We also find that chromosomes are organized into multiple levels of interacting domains. Our results define a global view of enhancer-promoter interactions and provide a dataset to further understand mechanisms of enhancer targeting and long-range chromatin organization.
