Abstract

An inflammatory response is initiated by the temporally controlled activation of genes encoding a broad range of regulatory and effector proteins. A central goal is to devise strategies for the selective modulation of proinflammatory gene transcription, to allow the suppression of genes responsible for inflammation-associated pathologies while maintaining a robust host response to microbial infection. Toward this goal, recent studies have revealed an unexpected level of diversity in the mechanisms by which chromatin structure and individual transcription factors contribute to the selective regulation of inflammatory genes.
