Cohesin-binding signals at specific gene regions. a Cohesin-binding site distribution in cohesin target genes as defined in Table 1. Cohesin binding to the promoter (P), gene body (B), and/or downstream region (D) are indicated for each cohesin target gene in red (upregulated) and blue (downregulated) boxes. b Signal intensity profiles of Rad21 ChIP-seq at specific gene regions in wild type and Nipbl mutant MEFs. Preimmune IgG ChIP-seq signals are shown as a negative control. Experimentally determined CTCF-binding peaks in MEFs [40] are also indicated. Examples of genes that are bound by cohesin and changed expression in Nipbl+/− MEFs (top) and those genes that did not change expression (bottom) are shown. No cohesin-binding peaks were found at the Srp14 gene region
