“Should we be surprised that promoters can function as enhancers—or better—that enhancers and promoter regions can overlap? Probably not: the habit of annotating different genomic regions with distinct labels ignores the fact that DNA sequences typically encode different genetic functions in a rather flexible manner. Enhancers and promoters are determined by the presence of short degenerate motifs, and even protein-coding regions display flexibility due to the degeneracy of the genetic code. Therefore, a single DNA sequence can encode different types of functions, including enhancer function of protein-coding regions or—as shown now—enhancer function of
promoters.”
