                      Fab-7 and MCP-PRE appear to have two distinct roles; they regulate the expression of their flanking genes in cis, but they also mediate long-distance regulatory interactions with Hox genes in the Antennapedia complex.

                      Continuous transcription through the Fab-7 PRE in a transgene, producing either sense or antisense Fab-7 RNA, leads to the epigenetic activation of the Fab-7 element.

                      Trl protein-binding sites are necessary but not sufficient for full Fab-7 enhancer-blocking activity. Distinct Trl protein-binding sites within the Fab-7 element are required for different enhancer-blocking activities at different stages of development.

                      Fab-7 sites exhibit epigenetic inheritance of depressed chromatin states.

                      A Fab-7 element is switched from a silenced to a mitotically heritable active state by an embryonic pulse of transcription. Activated Fab-7 enables transcription of a gene even after withdrawal of the primary transcription factor.

                      Fab-7 can be switched to an active or a silencing mode. Both epigenetically determined states can be transmitted to a fraction of progeny in the next generation through the female germline. This suggests that a protein-based cellular memory mechanism can be propogated through meiosis.

                      The Fab-7 region can be subdivided into a chromatin domain boundary and a Polycomb-response element.

                      Chromatin domain boundary element in the Bithorax-complex. Fab-7 can be functionally subdivided into enhancer block and Pc response elements.

                      Deletion of the Fab-7 element results in fusion of the iab-6 and iab-7 cis-regulatory domains into a single regulatory domain that inappropriately regulates Abd-B. This result suggests Fab-7 is a chromatin domain boundary within the context of the bithorax complex that normally functions to ensure the autonomous activity of the iab-6 and iab-7 cis-regulatory domains.

                      A specialised DNA element, Fab-7, is proposed to function as a boundary element that separates the iab-6 and iab-7 cis regulatory regions within the Abd-B domain of the BX-C. Studies suggest Fab-7 functions as an attenuator which weakens gene expression by reducing enhancer-promoter interactions. Fab-7 selectively blocks distal enhancers in an orientation-independent fashion and can function when far from either the distal enhancer or target promoter.

                      The role of Fab-7 as a boundary element may be restricted to particular tissues in which the homeotic genes are active.

                      The Fab-7 element shows an orientation-dependent silencing of w+mC but this silencing varies between different insertion lines.

                      The sequence and chromatin organisation of Fab-7 and Mcp have been compared.

                      The 3' flanking region of Abd-B includes three silencer regulatory regions, IAB5, MCP and Fab-7, whose function is dependent on segmentation gene products.

                      The expression of the P{bluetail} insertion into the PS12-specific regulatory domain in Abd-Bblt allows dissection of the neighboring cis-regulatory region into independent domains.

                      Boundary elements in the bithorax complex, such as Fab-7 organize the parasegment specific cis-regulatory sub-regions into a series of autonomous domains, insulating each domain from the regulatory influences of the adjacent ones.

                      An insulating boundary element in the 'Fab7' region is characterized by an unusual chromatin structure.

                      Fab-7 and Mcp region chromatin structure contain distinct chromatin structures that display similarities to the scs and scs' structures of the Hsp70A locus, and are constitutive. Deletion analysis demonstrates that the DNA segment required for Fab-7 function contains 3 nuclease hypersensitive regions and that for Mcp function contains 1 major hypersensitive region and 3 minor nuclease hypersensitive regions.
