Epigenetic control of the Th2 locus. Master regulator GATA-3 is induced by TCR and IL-4 receptor activation and maintains its own expression with a positive feedback mechanism. GATA-3 induces repressive histone modifications at Th1 loci (TBET, IFNG). It interacts with HAT enzyme p300 with chromatin remodeling complex component Chd to induce permissive histone and chromatin changes at the Th2 LCR. Distribution of main epigenetic marks at the Th2 LCR [23] are presented in the lower box.
